Maine Pyar Kiya's Lead And Salman Khan's Co-Star Bhagyashree Opens Up On Not Valuing Success She Tasted At An Early Stage
As Maine Pyar Kiya actress Bhagyashree turned a year older today, the actress in conversation with Indian Express shared she chose family over films very early in her life. The actress who is all set to make her comeback with Radhe Shyam and Thalaivi opened up on her experience shooting for her debut movie, Maine Pyaar Kiya, things she learnt while filming and how she easily got success at an early age but did not show gratitude towards it.

Speaking about shooting for her debut movie, she shared remembering every single day she spent on the sets and how she enjoyed being in front of the camera. “I enjoyed doing Maine Pyar Kiya. I loved the process of it, loved being on the set — I remember each and every day vividly. This is the movie when I realised that I enjoyed being in front of the camera, that I loved acting,” says the actress. While being an actor was nowhere in her plan, she regrets not taking it seriously and making the most of it.

Bhagyashree adds, “So, for me, this process of learning to love something I do was more important than anything else, I had never thought about being an actor. For me it was all about taking on a journey, learning a new profession. Now when I look back, I realise how I took it so lightly, the film came to me, and I didn’t make the most of it.”

Confessing that success came to her very easily as compared to others who work hard for it, now she takes it as her learning experience. “Artistes really work very hard to get the kind of success I got then. I got it quite easily, and very early on in my life. It just came to me. I feel I wasn’t true to my God because He gave it to me and I did not show gratitude towards that, I did not value the success that was showered on me. And now I look at it as a learning experience,” said Bhagyashree.

She credits her role of Suman from Maine Pyaar Kiya for still gets film offers in her second innings, hence she has decided to be grateful this time. She said, “For so long I stayed far away from what I really loved. I wasn’t grateful for what I got. Today, I value what I had then. In the last couple of years, I have realised that if people are remembering Suman, and are offering me roles even after 30 years of the film, I must have done something right and I’ll no more underestimate what I have in me. I have to be more grateful for the opportunities that have come my way in my second innings. I hope the audience loves me again, and this time I will be ever so grateful. I would not have given up acting if I had the kind of learning I have today.”

Opening up on if Maine Pyaar Kiya would have been made in today’s time, then this concept of a girl waiting for a boy wouldn’t have worked as it is fast-paced life, shared the actress.

“I don’t know if the value is seen in waiting and in sacrifice today. It is a very fast-forward life, sense of loss doesn’t persist for too long, I think. The girl was waiting for the guy to come back (in Maine Pyar Kiya), and the guy knew he had to prove himself because Suman was waiting for him to return. They didn’t meet when they were expected to stay away from each other. Today’s generation would be rebellious. It is all about instant pleasure and gratification. These concepts are quite dated today, we have different kinds of stories today, they’re all so well-rounded and thought out. I don’t mean to say that people today don’t fall in love or that they lack depth, but things are different. I think stories that are told today are closer to real life, not far away from reality,” added Bhayashree.

Speaking about her upcoming projects, the actress revealed being excited and nervous at the same time, she said, “There is excitement and nervousness in equal proportions. What I keep coming back to, when I feel like this, is when my daughter was coming down to the breakfast table on the day of her final board exams. She had a spring in her step and a broad smile on her face and I was wondering, ‘why is this girl smiling on the day of her board exam, isn’t she nervous?’ She told me, ‘I will never be doing this ever in my life again, so I am excited that this is happening for the first time in my life.’ I thought of it as such a wonderful way to get over your nervousness. I am going to start a new chapter in my life, getting back to doing films, so I have kept the nervousness on the backburner and let excitement take over. I want to remember my journey in this light.” ALSO READ: Salman Khan's Maine Pyar Kiya Co-Star Bhagyashree Has A Blast In Goa With Her Gal Pals Sheeba Akashdeep Sabir, Minakshi Chaudhri And Sonia Desaii
