Eminent personalities offer condolences on Reema Lagoo's death


Veteran actor Reema Lagoo died of cardiac arrest at the Kokilaben Hospital early this morning. 

She was 59. An integral part of the Hindi and Marathi film fraternity for nearly four decades, Reema was well known for playing the 'mother' character in some of the biggest hits of Bollywood which include Vaastav, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Hum Saath Saath Hain, Saajan, Aashiqui, Maine Pyar Kiya and others. Her portrayal of the waspish mother-in-law in the comedy television serial Tu Tu Main Main tickled the funny bone of viewers. She also worked in notable serials including Shriman Shrimati, Naamkaran and Tuza Maza Jamena. 

Among those who expressed their grief at her sudden demise were 

Reema Lagoo was a versatile actor who left a big impact in the film & TV world. Her demise is saddening. My deepest condolences: PM
