28 years ago, Sooraj Barjatya’s film Maine Pyar Kiya, starring Salman Khan and Bhagyashree, marked the debut of two fantastic actors in lead roles, and was the top-grossing film that year.
Maine Pyar Kiya gave Salman the golden image of Prem that he further carried in many of Rajshri’s films. The movie also brought to us a lovely looking young girl Suman, played by our very own Bhagyashree.
Salman's performance and chemistry with Bhagyashree in the film Maine Pyar Kiya was superb. The film completes 28 years of its release today; however, Salman's character as Prem, a dedicated lover is still etched in our minds.
On this special day, actress Bhagyashree has shared a throwback picture of herself from the movie and wrote - 29th Dec 1989 MPK. Its been 28years and the love never ceases I thank you all for the love, appreciation and blessings i recieve from You all. Keep it going into 2018 n more. #mainepyaarkiya #mpk #movie #love #gratitude#filmsforever #icon
The white pigeon that played cupid between Prem (Salman) and Suman (Bhagyashree), delivering his love letters to her in the song Kabootar Jaa has a name and it is Handsome.
MPK went on to become the biggest blockbuster that year, holds the record for the maximum Filmfare wins for any film. The film won 7 awards and was nominated in 13 categories and made Salman a star.
