Bhagyashree had become a star overnight with her first film, Maine Pyaar Kiya. She had won a million hearts with the portrayal of a shy girl opposite Salman Khan. But despite the stupendous success of the film and being aware of the super-stardom knocking at her door, Bhagyashree had left Bollywood. Bhagyashree was married to businessman-turned-actor/producer, Himalaya Dasani when her first film, Maine Pyaar Kiya released. Soon after the marriage, her son, Abhimanyu was born, and for the sake of her family, Bhagyashree had quit acting.
Recently, Bhagyashree’s husband, Himalaya Dasani underwent a shoulder surgery at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital. On July 30, 2020, Bhagyashree took to her IG handle and shared an appreciation post for the doctors, nurses and other staff of the hospital. In her note, she thanked all of them for taking good care of them while ensuring all safety measures amidst COVID-19 pandemic. Sharing pictures and video from the hospital, Bhagyashree wrote, “Surgery done! Not a time that anyone would ever venture even near a hospital but unfortunately a freak accident left us with no choice. Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala did an excellent job. I truly thank all the Ambani staff, doctors and nurses for looking after us. Perfect Covid protocol is maintained at all times. The Covid positive patients and staff attending to them are on a separate floor, so there is no intermingling. I want to thank all my well wishers for their prayers and wishes. We shall be going home soon.” On her post her son, Abhimanyu Dasani commented, “Come Back will be stronger than the set back.”
In an interview with Humans of Bombay, Bhagyashree had talked about her love story with Himalaya Dasani. She had shared, "We went to school together — he was the naughtiest kid in class and I was always the class monitor. We would fight all the time and the rest of the class would have a blast! We were like Yin and Yang — the more we fought, the more it became clear that we couldn’t be apart. We never dated though…he never even told me how he felt until the last day of school. He said, ‘I have to tell you something’ and then for one week he kept trying to say it but would always back out. Finally, I went upto him and said, ‘look, just say it…I’m sure the answer will be positive’ and that’s when he told me he liked me."

In an interview with Pinkvilla’s Dear Mom, Bhagyashree had opened up about leaving stardom to raise her kids and her much-awaited comeback. Bhagyashree, who had graced the show with her son, Abhimanyu was asked whether leaving movies was a difficult decision for her and she had replied, “Yes, and no. A tough call because by then I had realised that I do enjoy acting and I was like I wish I had the possibility of managing both. But no, because he just took over my life. My entire focus and happiness were having him with me. At that point, it was not a tough choice. All that I wanted to do was spend time with him.” (Also Read: Tiger Shroff's 'Jiju' Eban Hyams Is Bowled With His 'Daang' Photo, Ayesha, Krishna, Disha Are In Awe)
