B’wood actress Bhagyashree's husband arrested for gambling
Bhagyashree is a Bollywood actress of the yesteryears who starred in the 1989 blockbuster 'Maine Pyar Kiya' which was also one of the first big hits of another Bollywood legend, Salman Khan. However, Bhagyashree retired from the profession in the next year itself and got married in the year 1990 to Himalaya Dassani.
In a very recent development, her husband Himalaya is said to have been arrested on Tuesday 2nd July 2019 by Amboli police station in Andheri, Mumbai. Dassani is an actor-turned-film producer and is also said to be in the construction business, but this arrest is for being allegedly involved in illegal gambling activities.
"Amboli Police had recently busted a gambling racket, in which Himalaya Dassani's involvement had come to light as his name cropped up during the interrogation of arrested accused," said an official regarding the arrest made. However, it is said that Dassani was let out on bail after being produced before a local court soon later.
India has been very strict about illegal gambling practices in the country in recent times, which includes illegal live poker rooms, sports betting, gambling and much more. It was just last month where we saw 19 poker players arrested in Bangalore while a month before that, 2 betting kingpins were arrested in Jaipur and a major bust was in April where 60+ people were arrested after a gambling den was busted in Kolhapur.
Dassani made his debut in Bollywood in 1992 with the movie 'Payal'. The now businessman has brought up 2 children with Bhagyashree - Abhimanyu Dassani and Avantika Dassani. Abhimanyu recently entered Bollywood himself with Vasan Bala’s ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’ in 2018.
