and Salman khan
worked together in their debut movie Maine Pyar Kiya. Their chemistry in the film grabbed a lot of attention and the film became an epitome of romance. Right after that, the two actors got a lot of acting offers together including many photoshoots. Recalling one such incident, Bhagyashree said that once a famous photographer asked Salman Khan to kiss her by surprise for a perfect shot. However, Salman's reply got her respect and she felt safe in the industry ever since.
She said, "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,’” she revealed.
Further talking about the industry, she said, "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 very close by 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 really respected Salman’s response, and that’s when I realised I was among safe people,” she said.
