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

Ms Lagoo had been taken to the Kokilaben Hospital at night after she complained of severe chest pain.

The 59-year-old actor complained of chest pain on Wednesday and suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday morning.

Soon after passing away in the hospital, Lagoo was cremated and her funeral was held.

It is during the shooting of one of the most powerful scenes, where she tells her son to take out her "mangalsutra" and give it to his father, that I discovered the depth she possessed as an actor which was not really utilised by our film industry.

Reema Lagoo's sudden demise has saddened the entertainment fraternity and her fans across the globe. Supriya Pilgaonkar, who played her daughter-in-law on the show shared a heartfelt message on Twitter.

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

Lagoo, who is now seen on the STAR Plus show Naamkarann, was prolific on the small screen and is best remembered for playing the quarrelsome mother-in-law in Tu Tu Main Main. No one can replace her in my life.

As I put flowers on her feet, I feel grateful that I had the privilege of meeting an extra-ordinary actor and far larger human being that people know her. On the show, Ashish was a puppet in the hands of his dominating mother Dayawanti Mehta played by Lagoo.

Lastly, Mohnish Behl added that now they are quite certain that when they go there, they will miss seeing her standing on her balcony and waving at his wife.

Her acting career spanned four decades. "I love her so much". "At times, when I see today's actors who will not say "hello" to you until you say 'hello" to them... I met her long ago, and we were not friends beyond the profession, but we felt more for her, because of the kind of person she was. She always played the eternal mother figure in Bollywood films and several television series. The whole industry is now in a state of shock. Now that Reema is no more, like Juhi points out, Sooraj Barjatya's films would be incomplete without Reema.
