Usha Uthup and Jani Chacko love story
Usha first met Jani Chacko in 1969 when she was performing at Trinkas, a nightclub in Kolkata. At that time, Usha was married to her first husband Ramu, who had accompanied her to Kolkata for the performance. According to her authorised biography 'The Queen of Indian Pop: The Authorised Biography of Usha Uthup' Vikas Kumar JhaUsha first saw Jani sitting at a nearby table when she was singing Albert's Harp's 'A Taste of Honey'. That day, Ramu and Jani talked to each other and the next day, the two men met again for a meal. Interestingly, it was Jani who invited Ramu to this meeting.
The next day, Usha was performing again at Trinkas, where she saw Jani; but her then-husband Ramu was not present there. After the show, Jani offered to drop Usha home – an offer she accepted. Jani and Usha did not speak much during this time, but when she reached home and her husband Ramu saw that she had come with Jani, he was very upset.
According to his biography, “Ramu said to Jani, 'Enough is enough Mr. Uthup! You can leave' and Ramu closed the door”. On asking Ramu about his behaviour, “he screamed and broke down. 'Do you know what Jani Uthup said to me at the Chinese restaurant this afternoon? Jani said, 'I don't know about Usha and her feelings, but I love your wife.'” To this Usha calmly replied that Jani had not said that to her. When Ramu asked her if Usha also had feelings for Jani, the singer confessed by saying 'yes'.
Over the next few days, Ramu gradually drifted away from Usha and their five-year marriage slowly came to an end. Usha then decided to separate from Ramu and have a love marriage with Jani Chacko.
