Veteran actress Reema Lagoo dies in Mumbai

The prolific actress has played screen mum to Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Since then, Reema has given a number of memorable performances in films such as Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Maine Pyaar Kiya, Saajan, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, and Kal Ho Na Ho, among others.

Lagoo, who was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital late on Wednesday after she complained of chest pain, died around 3.15am.

Her mortal remains were taken from the hospital to her Andheri West apartment at 10.45 a.m.

Among the Bollywood faces seen at Lagoo's funeral on Thursday were Aamir Khan with wife Kiran Rao, Rishi Kapoor and Kajol. I still remember what she told me when she met me at my office, "Are you going to oversee the making of the show?" The actress has also worked in Marathi films.

FOX Announces New Girl Season 7 as the Series' Last
Despite rumours that this season would be its last, it seems as though New Girl is being pushed on for one final season . But next season is definitively billed as the final round for the trend-setting series.

Many actors and actresses from the film, television and theatre fraternity of the Marathi entertainment industry, including Sachin and Supriya Pilgaonkar, Sonali Kulkarni, Neena Kulkarni and Vijay Patkar, visited her home. Finally, when he was contacted later, Nath shared - "Firstly, I was at a place where there is no network, so I couldn't say my obituaries".

Reema Lagoo and Supriya shared an unbelievable on-screen chemistry and people loved them as Devaki and Radha. "Her demise is saddening", Modi tweeted.

I was privileged to put her out of her self imposed exile when I went to her and asked her to do the role of Dayawanti Mehta in "Naamkaran". I would irritate her with small little things, and I can't put in words the kind of friendship I shared with her. He had lost his mother at a young age. Remember working with her as an associate director in #Rangeela.A talented actress & a warm person.
