RIP Reema Lagoo: Bollywood celebrities mourn death of Indian cinema's most celebrated on-screen mother
Reema Lagoo best known for her roles in 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun', 'Hum Sath-Sath Hain', 'Maine Pyaar Kia' and 'Kal Ho Na Ho' amongst many other contributions that she had made to the Hindi cinema, passed away at the age of 59 due to cardiac arrest. She was admitted to Andheri's Kokilaben Ambani Hospital, after complaining of chest pain Wednesday night.
Reema Lagoo was Bollywood's quintessential mother but before claiming that title she had made her mark on the small screen as well. In shows like 'Shriman,Shrimati', 'Tu Tu Main Main', 'Do Aur Do Paanch' she was a laugh riot and extremely fun to watch.
This is how celebrates reacted to news of her death:
