RIP! Reema Lagoo Passes Away

For most Bollywood fans, Reema Lagoo would forever remain etched in memory as Salman Khan’s popular screen mum. The actress who played his mother in blockbusters like Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Saath Saath Hai and Saajan passed away early this morning following a massive cardiac arrest in Mumbai.

A noted actress of Marathi and Hindi films, Reema was also known for her work on stage. Unfortunately, she got stuck in the ‘mother image’ though she had some spectacular work in Marathi cinema where she tackled complex roles. Interestingly, she was only 31 when she played mom to a 24-year-old Salman in Maine Pyaar Kiya. From then on, she pretty much established herself as one of the favourite screen mothers in mainstream Bollywood with her work in films like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Vaastav etc being hugely appreciated. 

Several Bollywood stars took to Twitter to express their condolences for Reema Lagoo’s family.
