When Yash Chopra called Bhagyashree ‘the most stupid girl in Bollywood’ in front of her son Abhimanyu
Becoming an actress and making your mark with your very first film is a dream come true in Bollywood. However, the trajectory of actress Bhagyashree’s career was nothing like what one expected it to be. She made her debut with Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Maine Pyar Kiya‘ alongside Salman Khan. The film went on to become a huge hit however that was the only film Bhagyashree is known for.
The pretty actress recently opened up about how she quit films in order to live a happily married life. She even revealed that legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra once called her ‘stupid’ in front of her son as she quit the film industry despite the massive succes of her debut film.
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Bhagyashree was questioned if her family asked her to quit films, to which the actress replied, “Areh, uss time toh hoga hi na! After ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’, puri duniya ki chahat thi meri liye. I might have had the self-doubt but people found me to be a pretty looking girl. I had the success and my husband was in his early 20s. Both of us decided to get married so early. So having someone who’s adored by the entire world and is yours, you don’t want to share them with anyone, no? So yes, of course.”
The ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ actress went on to share how once Yash Chopra had called her stupid and that too in front of her son Abhimanyu. The filmmaker was not happy with Bhagyashree for refusing some of the best films offered to her during those days.
Bhagyashree told the portal, “I actually refused most of the big films of that time. Every time I would meet Prakash uncle or Yashji (Chopra), they would fire me in front of everyone standing in front of us. Even very recently, a few years ago, when I even walked up to Yash uncle and introduced Abhimanyu to him, he told my son, “Yeh tumhari maa hai na, woh industry ki sab se stupid girl thi’. He really wanted to work me and I would always say no. After ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’, every big film was offered to me, especially the ones these directors have done.”
The actress married Himalaya Dassani when she was at the peak of her career. The couple has a son Abhimanyu and a daughter Avantika. A few years back, Bhagyashree made a comeback with Tv shows. She will be next seen in Kangana Ranaut‘s ‘Thalaivi’.
