‘You Just Catch Her And Smooch Her‘: Bollywood veteran: Bhagyashree recalls an incident from the past when a popular photographer insisted Salman Khan to kiss Bhagyashree, by taking him by surprise during a photo shoot.
Bhagyashree who is making a comeback in the film industry was giving an interview wherein she recalled an incident that took place during the filming of ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ with Salman Khan.
Bhagyashree made her film industry debut with Maine Pyar Kiya opposite Salman Khan. But, soon after that, she was hardly seen in movies and now she is all set to make her comeback with Prabhas‘ upcoming movie and will also play a pivotal role in Kangana Ranaut starrer Thalaivi.
Coming back to that ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ photoshoot incident. Bhagyashree recalled there was this popular photographer who is not alive anymore asking Salman to kiss her during a photoshoot and the incident took place during the filming of Maine Pyar Kiya.
“There was a very popular photographer back then, who is no more. He wanted to take some not-so-complimentary photographs of Salman and me some sort of ‘hot’ photographs. So, he took Salman aside and told him, ‘Main jab camera set up karunga (When I set up the camera), you just catch her and smooch her’.”
Bhagyashree also shared,
“All of us were newcomers and this photographer thought he had the liberty to do something like that. Back then, smooching scenes were not prevalent. I don’t think he or Salman knew that I was standing by very close and could hear every word. For a second, I remained shocked, but just then, I heard Salman say, ‘I am not going to do anything of that sort. If you want any pose like that, you need to ask Bhagyashree.’ I respected Salman’s response, and that’s when I realised I was among safe people.”
Bhagyashree also revealed that it will be a pleasure to work with Salman and Sooraj Barjatya once again.
