Maine Pyar Kiya Fame Bhagyashree Reveals She Had Initially Rejected Salman Khan's Film; Says ‘I Didn’t Want To Do It’
Bollywood actress Bhagyashree, who marked her debut with the 1989 film Maine Pyar Kiya co-starring Salman Khan received critical acclaim for her stellar performance. The film did commercially well and the actress managed to win hearts. She also won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut that year. Now, in an interview, Bhagyashree, who played the role of Suman in Maine Pyar Kiya revealed she had initially rejected the director Sooraj Barjatya film. She said she didn’t want to do it.

Speaking with Mumbai Mirror, when asked how did Bhagyashree become Suman of Maine Pyar Kiya, the actress revealed she didn’t want to do the film initially but wanted to go abroad for higher studies. She said, “If today's generation reads this, they will think I was out of my mind because who refuses a film like 'Maine Pyar Kiya!' But I didn’t want to do it. Instead, I wanted to go abroad for higher studies and had also secured admission. However, my father wanted me to complete my education in India itself and we were arguing over it when 'Maine Pyar Kiya' came my way.”

She continued to share how she told filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya that she didn’t want to work in films. Bhagyashree revealed that it was a fact that Barjatya couldn’t understand. Talking about the film, the actress added, “The subject was beautiful and I liked what he narrated to me. But, at the end of it, when he wanted to know if I would do the film, I told him that despite liking the script, I wouldn't be able to take it up.” Bhagyashree mentioned that Barjatya returned to her seven times, with changes in the script to please her. She revealed that each time she would come up with a new excuse. Finally, she said that the eighth time, she had no excuse, and gave a nod to the film. But on the eighth time, I couldn't make one up and gave my nod to the film.

Meanwhile, Bhagyashree also opened up about the experience of working with Salman Khan. She said, “It was a debut venture for all three of us--Salman, Soorajji, and me. Though Salman had done a film; this was his first as a hero. So, it was like going to college and we became buddies, which was beautiful. We were all so raw; there was no pretence.” Currently, on the work front, Bhagyashree has films Radhe Shyam that also stars Prabhas, and Kangana Ranaut’s Thalaivi in the pipeline.
