Veteran actress Reema Lagoo dies in Mumbai

Reema Lagoo

The sudden demise of Veteran actress Reema Lagoo is a great loss to the nation and to film industry.

The 59-year-old artiste breathed her last at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri west, where she was rushed shortly after midnight. The way she played the role of the mother was very phenomenal, nearly comparable to Mother India. "She was perfectly fine and had no health it is really shocking for all us that she is no more with us".

She last appeared as the mother of the male lead in Hindi romantic drama Naamkarann which premiered last September and is still airing. For her even failure of a film doesn't bother her too much. "I remember she had no attitude or tantrums regarding make-up rooms or food which was served on the sets".

"She used to add fun to the sets as our show had many emotional scenes".

Talking about "Naamkarann", the show is going through an interesting twist, where Dayawanti will get to know that instead of her grand daughter Riya (played by Nalini Negi), it is her illegitimate grand-daughter Avni who has married Neil (played by Zain Imam). She was a socially conscious person and she did a lot of work with us on the Paani project. "I will miss her for sure", said the "Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain" actress. She was a very pleasant and talented lady. The actress, who had started her acting career as a Marathi theater artist, had made her film debut in 1979 with the Marathi film Sinhasan. Her roles revealed that fact that mothers are like birds that keep their young under their wings, protecting and nurturing them always. The actress who played mom to superstars like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan suffered a cardiac arrest and lost her life. She became a Rajshri staple, notably playing Madhuri Dixit's mother in the 1994 blockbuster Hum Aapke Hain Koun.! In Mumbai, she lives in my building itself and this morning it was a big shock for me. Her demise has left a void which is hard to fill. She has done all patterns and all shades that an actor can do. Am just very sorry for not sending you this pic earlier but am sure eventually you will see this note and picture, in your own way just the way you managed to do so most things that didn't meet your gorgeous eyes. till then.
