Jayshree Talpade (born c. 1953) is an Indian actress and dancer who mostly plays in Bollywood films.



Talpade began her career at age 5 in 1958 with Goonj Uthi Shehnai . [1] She gained popularity when she started performing item dances in films, being an exponent of Kathak. However she had already gained a foothold in the industry, as a child artiste in Sangeet Samrat Tansen , Zameen Ke Taare (1960) and Pyar Ki Pyaas (1961). According to her, it was Gopi Kishan who spotted her dancing in a film.

[1] After that, she danced in more than 500 movies in the 1970s and 1980s. She has done vampish-comedy and sympathetic roles. Jayshree has acted in various Indian languages including Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Marwadi, Rajastani, English, Sindhi, Assamese, Bhojpuri, Oriya, Haryani, Garyali, Nepali, Punjabi, Marathi and Gujarati.

She has received 2 Maharashtra State Government awards for Marathi film as a leading lady, 3 Gujarat state government awards, Hyderabad Award, 6 lions club awards from Delhi and Mumbai. She received the Life Time Achievement Award for Bhojpuri films and Gujarati films.

Citing an incident which took place in a remote place of Gwalior, while shooting for a song, in an interview in 2012, Jayshree is quoted to have said: "We were shooting at a remote spot in Gwalior, for Kasam Bhavani Ki (1981), [3] in which Yogeeta Bali played the female lead. At the shooting site, I noticed a lot of police personnel. Some of the officers came up to me and said it was better I didn't shoot and returned to Bombay. "But why?" I exclaimed. "Madame", they replied, "we have received information that the dacoits in this region, are planning to kidnap you. They appear to be quite crazy about you". I was shocked! Such pretty girls like Yogeeta and Nazneen around, and I was their target!" The song was then shot at Film City. "Meri Lal Gulabi Choli" (Kasam Bhawani Ki), was the song. [4]
