She mentioned that she had never thought of becoming an actor. She added that now that she looks back she realises that the great opportunity came towards her but she did not make the most out of it. She added, "Artistes really work very hard to get the kind of success I got then. I got it quite easily, and very early on in my life. It just came to me. I feel I wasn't true to my God because He gave it to me and I did not show gratitude towards that, I did not value the success that was showered on me. And now I look at it as a learning experience."

She continued that for many years she stayed away from what she loved. She added, "I wasn't grateful for what I got. Today, I value what I had then. In the last couple of years, I have realised that if people are remembering Suman, and are offering me roles even after 30 years of the film, I must have done something right and I'll no more underestimate what I have in me. I have to be more grateful for the opportunities that have come my way in my second innings." However, this isn't her first comeback. Bhagyashree's films in her first comeback included regional films like Shotru Dhongsho and Uthaile Ghoonghta Chand Dekhle, Seetharama Kalyana. She was also seen in Humko Deewana Kar Gaye and Red Alert: The War Within.
