Reema Lagoo, who played mother to top Bollywood actors, dies

According to Dr JPS Sawhney, chairman of the department of cardiology at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, people in India with heart diseases or who suffered an attack were on an average 8-10 years younger than those with similar problems in the West. "Heart attacks occur without warning in 50%of the cases". She was rushed to Mumbai's Kokilaben Hospital after complaining of chest pain. Reema's son-in-law, Vinay Waikul said, "We took her to the hospital when she complained".

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.

Starting her career as a schoolgirl in Pune, Reema soon graduated to larger roles on Marathi stage and films.

She is survived by daughter Mrunmayee, who is also a theatre and film actress and theatre director.

She appeared in dozens of hit Bollywood films like Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), and Maine Pyar Kiya (1989).

Her acting career spanned over four decades and She was last seen in the television show "Naamkaran", aired on Star Plus. She was a very pleasant and talented lady. She was one of the most handsome people I knew. "She has done some fascinating work in both Marathi cinema and Marathi theatre". She used to pamper me a lot and was concerned about me on the sets.

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). We worked together in several movies and every time that I worked with her I learnt something new.

"Her role as mother and mother-in-law on silver screen made her popular and today the silver screen has lost the "popular mother". He had not met her in recent times as he wasn't working so much. There was no kind of generation gap with her, we could fool around since she would understand where we are coming from. She was a great actor and a greater human being. "I was in a state of shock when I heard the news".

Sonali also said that Reema was very grounded and had a pleasing personality.
