Reema Lagoo could pull off the character really well.

Lagoo also appeared in films like "Saajan", "Vaastav, "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Hum Saath-Saath Hain", "Deewana Mastana", "Yes Boss", and "Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon". The news came as a shock, especially because Reema was reported to be in good health, and had even finished shooting for her daily soap, Naamkarann on Wednesday. However, she had a part on the ongoing serial of Mahesh Bhatt's Naamkaran. "I was over happy that the finest actress who has been famous onscreen mother to many superstars will be sharing screen space with me and I'll be seen as her daughter".

Her onscreen son Viraf patel also shared a heartfelt letter on social media calling himself her last onscreen son. "Her four-decade-long career has been full of variety of roles on the screen as well as on the stage". "She was like a friend, who was just a little older". A talented actress and a warm person.

Cannes audience 'almost rioted' after technical issues for Netflix film Okja
The festival quickly issued an apology, insisting the error was technical and not anti-Netflix sabotage. Okja is one of two Netflix-funded films in competition for the Palme d'Or.


"I worked with Reema for the first time in a Marathi film Mukta in 1994". Only then will I say yes. Talking about his bond with Reema Lagoo, he said that he has lost a special friend. "I have done a lot of work with her, and there's so much to say". When I told her, "Reema, you can't be doing this, you are embarrassing me" she said, "forget it yaar, anything for the theatre.' So she had that spirit".

What she did in each and every film and on TV was all from her heart. She played mother to quite a few leading actors including Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Mohnish Bahl, Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi among others, in movies such as Hum Aapke Hain Koun.!, Hum Saath Saath Hain, Maine Pyar Kiya and many more. Her funeral took place on Thursday afternoon. In fact, I have a small house in Versova where I used to stay if I had late night shifts and Reema Ji used to stay in opposite and we used to talk from the windows. That never happened. We think we have time.We don't!Goodbye Reemaji. She was an wonderful actress with a handsome smile.

Doctors, however, said that while life expectancy among Indians had increased, people were falling prey to sudden heart attacks at a younger age.
