Bhagyashree on how filmmakers' attitudes have changed towards women in their 50s

Bhagyashree spoke about the roles various filmmakers' have to offer to women in their 40s and 50's. She shared, "Today people don't say, 'Oh, aapne mummy ka role Kiya hai', because even mother roles are so well written, I vividly remember Kiran Kher role from Devdas, she had so much power, she was beautiful and her character affected the story. Her character journey was fantastic. I drew inspiration from her."

She said that the new age directors are making sure that every single character has a complete journey. She added, "Every role they have in the film stands for something, that wasn't a case back then." Bhagyashree mentioned that these characters are not only related to the main character but also often have a separate arc to their own story. She added that they have an individual personality and they are not just cast to make the male lead actor in the film.
