‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ was an epic film, wasn’t it? The film that shot Salman Khan into superstardom still remains one of the most epic love stories ever told in Indian cinema. And can you believe it? It’s been 29 years since the movie released, and to mark the occasion, actress Bhagyashree shared a cute throwback picture.

Truly, it was a great film. Who can forget the antakshari scene? Or dialogues like ‘Dosti mein no sorry, no Thank You‘ . It taught a generation how to love and the songs still manage to make you go weak in the knees. Not many know that it bagged 7 Filmfare awards, out of the 13 nominations it received.
In a Facebook post, Bhagyashree revealed why she quit acting after the film. “There after, ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ went on to become such a big hit, but I was a woman so in love with my husband and my son Abhimanyu who was born soon after that I said no to every offer I got. I have absolutely no regrets though, I look at my life, my family now and I feel so proud. Yash Ji always said, ‘you’re a foolish girl’ and oh yes, I loved being foolish! Very often, people say ‘giving up such a bright career’ is backward, but I disagree. I respect and admire career women who can juggle both, but I took the decision of being a full invested home maker… and believe me, that’s a thankless job,” she said.
