Bhagyashree is best known for her lead role in the film Maine Pyar Kiya, a performance which earned her a national award for best female debut. The Salman Khan-starrer is considered a classic Bollywood film by many to this day and was the highest-grossing Indian film of the 1980s. The flick is also renowned for its soundtrack, which also achieved extremely high sales since its release. It is still one movie that many consider to be an iconic high point of Salman’s career.
Bhagyashree and her husband Himalaya appeared in a few films together after getting married, two of which are entitled Payal and Tyagi. Himalaya eventually moved on from acting while Bhagyashree took a break from Hindi films in the 90s to appear in a series of Tollywood flicks.
While the wedded couple aren’t as active in Bollywood anymore, Bhagyashree and Himalaya’s son Abhimanyu Dassani has already made his debut in the industry. The young actor recently appeared in his first movie, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, where he played the lead character of a man who is unable to feel any pain. The quirky film received positive reviews for its out-of-the-box storyline as well as the performances of the cast.
