23rd February marks the birthday of the beautiful woman who made her mark in Bollywood with one of the most critically and commercially acclaimed blockbuster movies, Maine Pyaar Kiya (1989). Yes, BollyCurry is here today to celebrate the birthday of the beautiful Bhagyashree Patwardhan!

Born into a royal family, Bhagyashree is the daughter of Raja Vijay Singhrao Madhavrao Patwardhan, the King of Sangli, a district in Mumbai, Maharashtra, and Rani Rohini Rajya Laxmi. She began her acting career with Amol Palekar's television series, Kachchi Dhoop (1987), which came to her as a replacement of the original actress. 

She stared in various other television series thereafter, but her real break took place fairly late in her career when she bagged the role of Suman opposite Salman Khan, who was also debuting as a lead in Maine Pyar Kiya (1989). The soft romantic-musical movie broke several records that year and marked its position as the most grossing Bollywood film of the year. The abundant success of this film made Bhagyashree and Salman Khan superstars overnight. Subsequently, Maine Pyaar Kiya has been dubbed into several other languages such as English as When Love Calls, in Spanish as Te Amo, in Telugu as Prema Paavuraalu, among others. The movie has also earned Bhagyashree her first and most precious Filmfare Award for Best Actress. 

After Ghar Aya Mera Pardesi (1993), Bhagyashree took a break from Hindi movies and explored Indian cinema in different regions until her comeback with Hello Girls in 2001, which was an average entertainer. The petite actress then took a back seat in in her career and only appeared in cameo roles. Among them is her stint in Humko Deewana Kar Gaye (2006) in which she played Akshay Kumar's sister and Red Alert - The War Within (2010) alongside Suniel Shetty. During the year 2009, Bhagyashree showed her dancing prowess in the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa Season 3. 

As of 2014, Bhagyashree made her comeback to television with Life Ok's on air fiction show, Laut Aao Trisha. She plays the role of a desperate mother looking for her missing daughter. On the personal front, Bhagyashree is happily married to Himalaya Dasani.

Did You Know?
  • Bhagyashree is a royal princess, her birth name and title is Shrimant Rajkumari Bhagyashree Raje Patwardhan.
  • Bhagyashree has two children; Avantika and Abhimanyu Dasani.
  • Bhagyashree is the promoter of a media entertainment company, Shristi Entertainment which is in partnership with her husband.

Even with very few films to her name, she continues to remain precious in the hearts of many movie watchers, being a gracious lady of a few words and leaving her sparkly eyes to do the all talking. On this joyous occasion, BollyCurry wishes Bhagyashree a wonderful day and an even better year ahead!
