The year 1989 proved to be a career breaking year for both, Salman Khan and Bhagyashree. The two newcomers starred in Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’.
‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ released in 1989 was Salman Khan and Bhagyashree’s debut Bollywood film.
Maine Pyar Kiya was a blockbuster and it made the duo the heartthrob of the nation.
This was the only film where Salman shared the silver screen with Bhagyashree but their fans still cannot stop obsessing over their amazing chemistry.
The incident dates back to the days when Salman and Bhagyashree were new to the industry.
Reminiscing some of the moments, Bhagyashree spilled the beans about the rapport she had with her co-star.
The actress also shared an unpleasant incident that happened on the sets. The actress reportedly said, “There was a popular photographer back then, who is no more. He wanted to take some not-so-complimentary photographs of Salman and me, some sort of “hot” photographs. So, he took Salman aside and told him, ‘Main jab camera set up karunga (When I set up the camera), you just catch her and smooch her’.
“All of us were newcomers and this photographer thought he had the liberty to do something like that. Back then, kissing scenes were not prevalent. I don’t think he or Salman knew that I was standing by very close and could hear every word. For a second, I remained shocked, but just then, I heard Salman say, ‘I am not going to do anything of that sort. If you want any pose like that, you need to ask Bhagyashree’. I really respected Salman’s response, and that’s when I realized I was among safe people”.
Bhagyashree also shed some light over her experience, “I would rather say that certain cult films remain as they are. One should not try and build on something like that to remake it again. That being said, it would be a pleasure working with both Sooraj Ji and Salman again”, she said.
Even though Maine Pyar Kiya became a huge success, Bhagyashree gave up on her career in Bollywood to focus on her family and personal life.
In an interview with Humans of Bombay, Bhagyashree said, “Maine Pyar Kiya went on to become such a big hit, but I was a woman so in love with my husband and son Abhimanyu who was born, soon after that I said no to every offer I got. I have absolutely no regrets though, I look at my life, my family now and I feel so proud”.
Maine Pyar Kiya became a massive hit and is still remembered to be one of the most romantic films in the Bollywood industry.
The blockbuster not only won our hearts but also won numerous awards and accolades for the film.
Salman Khan won the best debut actor award for the film and Bhagyashree won the New Face Award for the film and also won the Filmfare award for the best female debut.
However, Bhagyashree has been away from the silver screen all these years.
Her son Abhimanyu Dasani has now stepped into the Bollywood industry. He was awarded for his debut film, ‘Mard ko dard nahi hota’.
On the work front, Salman Khan will next be seen in ‘Radhe: Your most wanted Bhai’ directed by Prabhudeva. In this movie, he will be reuniting with his ‘Bharat’ co-star Disha Patani.
According to sources, the film will also feature actors; Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff in the key roles.
On the occasion, he also announced another film, titled ‘Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali’ where he will be seen opposite Pooja Hegde.
