Reema Lagoo - mother of all superstars

Reema Lagoo, who played mother to top Bollywood actors, dies

Lagoo's "superstar kids" included Shah Rukh Khan, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Kajol and Akshay Kumar, and her popularity carried forward a formulaic legacy set to template by on-screen mothers as Sulochana, Nirupa Roy, Achala Sachdev, Raakhee Gulzar and her own contemporary Farida Jalal.

Lagoo began to play mothers in Bollywood at a time when the stereotype of Indian mothers changed from the eternally tragic figure who suffered for her children.

In an acting career spanning nearly four decades, Lagoo appeared in several hit films like "Saajan", "Vaastav, "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Hum Saath-Saath Hain", "Deewana Mastana", "Yes Boss" and "Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon".

The 59-year-old artiste breathed her last at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital (KDAH), in Andheri west, where she was rushed shortly after midnight.

The Marathi actress was taken to the hospital late on Wednesday night after she complained of chest pain.

Lagoo's son-in-law Vinay Waikul told PTI, "She was complaining of chest pain so we took her to hospital around 1 AM". "She was one of the most popular mothers on screen". "I have done a lot of work with her, and there's so much to say". Her mother Mandakini was a stage actress and she was briefly married to Marathi actor Vivek Lagoo.

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

Rishi Kapoor, who co-starred with Reema in films such as ' Prem Granth, ' ' Shreemaan Aashique' and ' Henna', also attended the last rites of the actress.

Lagoo was recently felicitated with the V Shantaram Award of the state government for her contribution in the film industry.
