Bhagyashree also known as Bhagyashree Patwardhan, is an Indian film and television actress. She hails from the family of Patwardhans from Sangli city in Maharashtra. Her father is Maharaja of Sangli. Her full name is Shrimant Rajkumari Bhagyashree Raje Patwardhan. She is the eldest of three daughters, the other two being Madhuvanti and Purnima. She was born on the same day of the legendary actress Madhubala's death.

Bhagyashree started her acting career with Kachhi Dhoop - a television serial by Amol Palekar. It was based on Louisa Mary Alcott's Little Women. Her rendezvous with acting happened by chance when next door neighbor Amol Palekar, a renowned actor-director, requested her to step in and act in his serial Kacchi Dhoop as the actress who had been signed on had abandoned the serial abruptly. The serial did well and later on she had roles in Honi Anhoni and Kisse Miya Biwi Ke. She is best known for her role in the 1989 film Maine Pyaar Kiya with Salman Khan.

After marriage, she acted in three films: Peepat's Qaid Main Hai Bulbul, K.C. Bokadia's Tyagi and Mahendra Shah's Payal all opposite her husband Himalaya.
After a gap of several years, she made a comeback to television with Aandhi Jasbaton Ki, where she played a politician. She was also seen in Didi Ka Dulha, a comedy serial on national broadcaster Doordarshan and a telefilm where she plays a blind person. She made her debut in Marathi films with the romantic comedy Zhak Marli Baiko Keli in June 2009.

She is the promoter of a media company Shrishti Entertainment with her husband.
