In her childhood, Joyoshree couldn't copy heroins, but she liked to mimic Kishore Kumar & Shammi Kapoor. Since the age of 9, she was doing theatre. She didn't think that this will become her career, and she was satisfied in her theatre activity. At the age of 12, a film producer- director talked to her dad and asked him to let her work in films, to which he replied stating let her complete the studies, and then he will think about it. She used to like dance, theater, acting, but she had no intention of acting in TV. Apart from this, she learnt Katthak Ravendra & Manipuri dance. She got a TV act in 1980 by an coincidence. 7th July 1984 was a special day for her, because she appeared in India's first family TV show Hum Log. She remembers that when she was at Radio Kashmir at Jammu, she asked to attend an audition for this project. Because of the success of Hum Log, she got calls for for auditions of hindi films too.
She got to travel to Delhi, Mumbai, Bhuvaneshvar, Kolkata to work in several projects. She admits that just like every other actor, she has faced tough times, but she fought the challenges, and she thinks that makes her a fighter. She has been a hard worker, she used to shoot for 12-13 hours a day. When she was working for Nanhi Pari, she has worked for 18 hours per day for continuous 59 days, without going home.
Joyoshree believes in god, her friends see her as an influential personality because of her positivity. She is in her mid-50s, but she follows a routine of getting up in the early morning, doing yoga, pranayam (she doesn't go to gym though), preparing and having tea, then teaching her students, gardening, cooking, and in her spare time, she likes to be close to nature, do poetry, do occasional writing, read, and stay busy in creative activities. She believes that god has given her birth as a human being, and she should utilise that privilege to do good deeds every day. When she looks back, she feels that she was able to do whatever she desired, but she is not yet satisfied, and wants to work even more and even better. Her message for her fans is, dream big, live them, be committed, be loyal, be sincere, sky is the limit.
