The doting mother also highlighted the importance of being with your children in their initial life stages. From pointing at the need for mental security to how vital it is for a child to have their mother around them, Bhagyashree explained:

"I believe when the kids are growing up, in the initial stages, the kind of bonding, the kind of foundation, the kind of mental and emotional security a child gets having his parents around and especially, the mother around, surpasses everything. That's what mattered most to me."

On the professional front, Bhagyashree was last seen in the film, Sajini Shinde Ka Viral Video.
