Reema Lagoo with actors Beena Banerjee and Anjana Mumtaz
Lagoo's "superstar kids" included Shah Rukh Khan, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Kajol and Akshay Kumar, and her popularity carried forward a formulaic legacy set to template by on-screen mothers as Sulochana, Nirupa Roy, Achala Sachdev, Raakhee Gulzar and her own contemporary Farida Jalal. Actor Viraf Patel who played the role of Ashish Mehta in Naamkarann penned an emotional post for the actress.
Reema was noted for her roles in several blockbusters like Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, Aashiqui, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Hum Saath Saath Hain, Maine Pyar Kiya, Kal Ho Na Ho, Vastaav, Saajan, Rangeela and Kya Kehna, etc.
Reema Lagoo passed away passed in the wee hours of Thursday at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri, Mumbai. Her family then took her to hospital around 1 am. Actor Sonali Kulkarni who had worked with Reema in two Marathi films - Mukta and Ghara Baher - spoke to indianexpress.com about her memories of the late actor. He had not met her in recent times as he wasn't working so much.
"I worked with Reema for the first time in a Marathi film Mukta in 1994".
Born to Marathi actor Mandakini Bhadbhade on June 21, 1958, Lagoo ventured into acting after completing her secondary education.
Lagoo was known for playing the role of a loving mother in many films and television dramas since the late 1970s. She also featured in TV shows like "Tu Tu Main Main" and "Shriman Shrimati".
The sudden demise of Reema Lagoo has left the cast and crew of Naamkarann in a state of shock.
With a heavy heart, Mohnish further said that if Sooraj Barjatya made a film, and chose to cast all of old Rajshree folks again, they know that she won't be there and that's a sad thought. His character is reportedly inspired by that of Mahesh Bhatt's father. "She had acted in my earliest TV serial, Ahankaar". I will miss her for sure,"she added". He had lost his mother at a young age. She is survived by her daughter Mrunmayee, who is also a theatre and film actress as well as a theatre director. "She was someone who never feared appreciating other person's work", Sonali said.
