She essayed the role of mother to Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt as well.
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).
Lagoo has worked in superhit films like "Maine Pyar Kiya", "Saajan", "Vaastav, "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" and, "Hum Saath-Saath Hain" among others, while her popular television serials included "Tu Tu Main Main" and "Shrimaan Shrimati". Reema Lagoo, at the age of 59, passed away yesterday morning at 3:30 am due to a heart attack. She was complaining of chest pain late night on May 17.
Aamir Khan, who attended the funeral with wife Kiran Rao, said that it was hard to come to terms with her death as it was so sudden. She played the role of Viraf Patel's mother. She once told me that my rawness is my strength and I should not try to act as if I know it all. The actress has also worked in Marathi films.
She played mother to nearly every major star and acted in some of Bollywood's biggest blockbusters.More news: Mostly cloudy today, rain on the way
She had won the Best Actress award at Maharashtra State Film Awards for Reshamgaath (2002).
Reema Lagoo and Supriya shared an wonderful on-screen chemistry and people loved them as Devaki and Radha. I was shocked to hear about her death.
However, as the saying goes the show must go on, the makers had to quickly find the replacement of Reema Lagoo's character in Naamkarann.
Apart from expressing grief, Aamir Khan revealed how Reema Lagoo was involved in the Paani Foundation. She was a fabulous actor and her heart was so clean.
"I have many memories with Reemaji which I will always adore". Her demise is saddening. He said, "I have lost a mother again today". I will miss her for sure,"she added". Renuka Shahane, who played Reema's daughter in Hum Aapke Hai Koun also shared an emotional post on social media. I would irritate her with small little things, and I can't put in words the kind of friendship I shared with her.
