Bollywood actress, Bhagyashree had made headlines with her blockbuster debut film, Maine Pyaar Kiya, co-starring Salman Khan. And soon, she had risen to stardom. However, she is counted among those actresses who have the courage to leave their careers for their love and family. Despite so much success and stardom, she had left Bollywood to be with the love of her life, Himalaya Dasani.

Following his mother's footsteps, Abhimanyu has already entered the Bollywood industry and had made his acting debut in 2018 with the action film, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. Recently, in an interview, he opened up about his mother's decision to take a break from movies and his opinion on this.
In an interview with the ETimes, Abhimanyu Dassani revealed his happiness for his mother, Bhagyashree taking a sabbatical from the entertainment industry. He mentioned that due to her break, she could spend quality time with her family and with him. Citing about Bhagyashree's presence during his school gatherings and whenever he achieved something, Abhimanyu said:
“I was just happy that way because she could be a part of my childhood by spending her time with me. We could take family vacations, she could accompany me for school gatherings and whenever I received medals she would cheer for me.”
Further, in the same conversation, Abhimanyu mentioned that he feels empowered upon seeing his mother, Bhagyashree that she was one such woman who, even after being at the top of the stardom, could sacrifice everything for her family. He mentioned his mother's humble attitude and how Bhagyashree's never-ending quest for learning new things is inspirational for him. He added:
“It is empowering to see that at one time she was at the top, yet she is being humble enough to understand and learn from the beginning after you take such a long break. It is quite inspiring to see her excitement like a student, eager to learn and understand the whole process again. It tells you to calm down and always be open towards learning. In short, be like water and just flow, my friend!”
