Bhagyashree’s Birthday is on the 23rd of February. She was born in 1969. As of 2023, she is 54 years old.
Bhagyashree comes from the Sangli Marathi royal dynasty of Maharashtra. Shrimant Rajkumari Bhagyashree Raje Patwardhan is her complete name. The Raja of Sangli was her father, Vijay Singhrao Madhavrao Patwardhan. She is the oldest of three daughters; Madhuvanti and Purnima are her younger sisters.
Rajlaxmi Patwardhan, the mother of Bhagyashree, is a housewife. Maharastra is Bhagyashree's birthplace in India. Bhagyashree finished her education at Jamnabai Narsee School in Mumbai, Maharashtra. She traveled to Mumbai, Maharashtra's Mithibai College to finish her undergraduate degree. She obtained a B.Com degree to complete her education.
Bhagyashree explained how she and her sweetheart, Himalaya, met in an interview with Humans of Bombay. They attended the same school. Bhagyashree referred to Himalaya as the mischievous child in her class in her earliest memories of him.
She said in an Interview, We attended the same school, where I served as the class monitor and he was the mischievous child. The rest of the class would have a blast while we would constantly fight! The more we quarreled, the more it became obvious that we couldn't be apart. We were like Yin and Yang.
However, we never dated. Before the last day of school, he had never even expressed his emotions to me. After saying, I have to tell you something, he repeatedly tried to say it over the course of a week but kept backing out. Finally, I approached him and urged him to simply say it. He then said, I'm sure the response will be favorable, at which point he admitted he liked me.
She is from a traditional household, and when her parents learned about Bhagyashree's romantic relationship, they opposed the union. They split up for the benefit of Bhagyashree's family, she said in an interview with Humans of Bombay. I come from a pretty traditional family, so even after that, while we were in college, we hardly ever saw each other or spoke on the phone.
She Further added, When I told my parents about him, they said that we were too young to make such a decision, and I concurred that if he truly loved me, we should stay apart for a while so that he could explore and come to the realization that I am the one before we get back together so when he moved away to study in the US, we did break up, and I then signed Maine Pyar Kiya.
Bhagyashree, who was deeply in love, also revealed that she had requested permission from Himalaya's parents before signing up for her debut movie. Despite the fact that they were not speaking at the time, she always had a feeling that they would get back together. In the same interview, Bhagyashree disclosed that despite her best efforts to persuade her parents, they forbade her from even speaking to Himalaya. She then came to the conclusion that, if she wanted to be with Himalaya, her only alternative was to elope.
Bhagyashree and Himalaya, her true love, were married in 1990. Following the release of her debut movie, Maine Pyaar Kiya Hai, she immediately shot to fame. However, Bhagyashree, a newlywed, had already made up her mind to leave Bollywood for her husband. Maine Pyar Kiya went on to become such a great hit after that, but I was a woman so in love with my husband and my son Abhimanyu who was born shortly after that I said no to every offer I got, she had stated. However, I have absolutely no regrets; I am incredibly pleased with my life and my family right now. I adored being foolish, as Yash Ji used to say, You're a foolish girl.
Bhagyashree had always cherished her responsibilities as a housewife. Bhagyashree discussed her desire to become a homemaker rather than a successful actress in her interview with Humans Of Bombay. They are parents to a daughter and a son. For his work in the 2019 movie Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, her son Abhimanyu Dasani got the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. Avantika Dassani, her daughter, made her ott debut with Mithya. She came with her husband in the Reality Show Smart Jodi, which was telecasted on Star Plus in 2022.

Controversy with Maine Pyaar Kiya Producers
Bhagyashree stated in an interview that the producers of the Movie took Bhagashree for granted, They didn't even call her at Premiere of the Movie. Once she fainted on the set except for her Husband no one took care of her. With this, she wasn’t ready to do a kiss or hug sequence with Co-star Salman Khan. In one of the moments of their movie, Maine Pyaar Kiya, Bhagyashree recalled how she had begun crying when she realized she had to give Salman Khan a hug. The actress recalled I had never even hugged a boy until I was 18 years old and thought I was in love at the time and going to get married. After learning that I would have to hug Salman during a song sequence in Maine Pyaar Kiya, I became anxious and started crying.
When Bhagyashree was questioned about what had persuaded her to participate in the embrace scene in the movie, the actress revealed that Salman Khan's soft, polite, and reliable request had given her the assurance to take part. 'Plz do it,' the actress pleaded. I was unable to refuse, which is how I ultimately agreed to perform the hug sequence.
The revelation that caught everyone's attention, though, was Bhagyashree's admission that she wasn't at ease kissing Salman Khan, her co-star, on camera. I wasn't as comfortable acting out a kissing scene back then because I was going to get married, the actress admitted. Sooraj Sir had the notion to place a glass between us so that the kiss could be seen through it. They altered the sequence in this way.
According to a charge sheet submitted in court by the Santacruz police, it is confirmed that actress Bhagyashree, and not her driver, was driving when a road collision happened in November 2016 that left a Santacruz entrepreneur injured. This occurs about five months after Mohammed Tausif Shaikh (30) filed a lawsuit because Bhagyashree's Skoda struck his two-wheeler after running a red light. Mohammed Tausif Shaikh suffered a fracture in his leg. Shaikh's allegation, however, claimed that Bhagyashree's husband had told him that she was operating the vehicle. In 2017, she got bail for this case.
