Last rites of veteran actress Reema Lagoo performed in Mumbai

Reema Lagoo, a Bollywood actress who often played the role of the "loving mother", died after suffering a cardiac arrest on Wednesday night in a hospital in Mumbai. She was hospitalised at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai shortly after midnight.

"It's really shocking to know that she's not with us anymore". Her family then took her to hospital around 1 am. Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, a friend and the writer of Naamkarann, told PTI: "When a friend passes away, one is hurled into deep silence".

"She used to add fun to the sets as our show had many emotional scenes".

She last appeared as the mother of the male lead in Hindi romantic drama Naamkarann which premiered last September and is still airing.

She is survived by her daughter Mrunmayee, who is also a theatre and film actress as well as theatre director. Lagoo will be remembered for her roles in films like Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kal Ho Naa Ho, and television serials like Tu Tu Main Main and Shrimaan Shrimati.

Today, Amazon doubled down at a fundraising luncheon for Mary's Place, matching donations up to one million dollars. Homelessness is a huge problem in Seattle , where tent cities have sprung up under the interstates.

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. She was one of the most attractive people I knew. On the show, Ashish was a puppet in the hands of his dominating mother Dayawanti Mehta played by Lagoo. "I saw her so closely". "I have done a lot of work with her, and there's so much to say".

Her onscreen son Viraf patel also shared a heartfelt letter on social media calling himself her last onscreen son. Her last notable film was Katyar Kaljyat Ghusli where she gave a voice-over. We were not aware that she had any such medical condition. She most plays a on screen mom character of Salman Khan.

Reemaji and me got associated through a film "Aashiqui" which was my first musical blockbuster made in the "80s". The whole industry is now in a state of shock. This picture for me is our most special picture, amongst many others as it somewhat captures the quiet offscreen bond we had.

Sonali also said that Reema was very grounded and had a pleasing personality.
