Bhagyashree on Bollywood: Even when I was going to enter films 30 years ago, it was said ‘it’s a very bad world’, but it is not that at all

Published

Actor Bhagyashree wasn’t even planning to enter films when she was offered Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), and she became an overnight sensation. And now, when we talk about the alleged rampant practices such as nepotism, groupism and favouritism in Bollywood, we ask her whether it is indeed the ‘big family’ it’s said to be.

“I have never had any ugly experiences. There probably have been some where I might have been a little disillusioned and hoped something would work, but it didn’t work out for some reasons. I look at it as a learning experience, maybe something lacking on my part, not being able to fulfil what I wanted,” says the 51-year-old. Her son, Abhimanyu Dassani, too is an actor himself, having made his debut with Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.

With so much debates going on currently, especially after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise, one can get a sense of how the film industry itself is being seen in a negative light, with it’s reputation as a proper workplace at stake. Does Bhagyashree feel the same, having seen it inside out? 

She reveals such was the perception earlier too. “Jab hum filmon mein aa rahe the, tab bhi tha ‘films are a very bad world, no person from a good family would be allowed to go to the film industry’. This was there even 30 years ago. Over a period of time, things have changed. You look at it as any other work place would be. There are women in every aspect, right from set designing, to make-up. I would say it still remains an industry,” reasons the actor.

She goes on to add it comes into light only because ‘everyone is associated with the film industry visually, or through social media’. “Having said that, again, it’s come through real people. We are talking only about Sushant’s untimely demise, but we have been talking about mental issues, suicide or murder cases, which have been happening all over everywhere— it’s just the frustration of people in general, they are not mindful. Like I said, being happy with your journey in life is what matters, and in that journey, taking care of people around us. How many times we call someone and ask ‘how are you?’ and don’t even wait for them to say ‘I am okay’? We start talking about something else! We are not mindful to our own people living in our homes, it’s not about the industry,” says Bhagyashree.

Emphasising on the industry not being ‘a bad place at all’, she says it is like any other industry would be, with some good and bad people, “As is the way of the world. The industry just makes it possible for things to come to light very easily and out there in the open. As people in the rest of India like to emulate you, it gives you a sense, of how we should conduct ourselves in public,” she tells us.

Neighbours spoilers follow.

Neighbours is updating its opening titles to reflect the Pierce Greyson recast.

Digital Spy can give an exclusive first look at the new sequence in our video at the top of the page.

Tim’s last episode as Pierce aired on Australian screens on Monday (October 19).

The tweaked titles see Don’s version of Pierce spending time outside the local café with his wife Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) and son Hendrix (Benny Turland).

This takes the place of a similar shot from the old titles, which saw Tim’s version of Pierce in the same scenario.

Neighbours fans in Australia will see the new titles later this week, while they air on UK screens in November.

The show announced Pierce’s recast in August after Tim had to bow out earlier than planned.

Due to changing regulations and travel restrictions in Australia amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Tim finished filming four weeks early and chose to fly back to Sydney to be with his wife ahead of the birth of their first child.

Don will be playing Pierce for a few weeks, finishing off the character’s exit storyline.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
