This morning, we all woke up to the shocking news about Reema Laagoo succumbing to a cardiac arrest in the early hours.
Best known for playing a mother on screen in films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, Vaastav among others, the 59 year old veteran actress complained of chest pain on Wednesday night after which she was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubai Ambani hospital where she finally breathed her last.
The whole industry is in a complete shock as several condolence messages continue to pour. Here's what our B-town celebs had to say...
"This is a horrible horrible news. I am just too sad to think about anything. She was such a fine actor to work with. This is very sad."
"It's the level of comfort that one experience with her, with an actor who is few years senior to you. We worked together in a lot of films and there was this comfort level.
You could always sit down with her, approach her, chitchat, be casual and have a light hearted conversation.
She was a very welcoming and warm human being. In fact I have a small house in Versova where i used to stay if i had late night shifts and Reema Ji used to stay in opposite and we used to talk from the windows. She was a wonderful woman. It is a terrible loss."
Saddened. RIP #ReemaLagoo. She radiated talent, beauty and such warmth. She will be missed. Condolences to her family.
A Pinkvilla report quoted her saying, "It really is shocking. I met her just some weeks ago at an awards function at Raj Bhavan. Oh dear!!! She has to be one of the most beautiful people really. I personally thought she was so pretty with her light eyes and lovely features.
Strangely we worked together in the same film QSQT and then in many more films like Najayaz, Pratibandh, Deewana Mastana. But my most vivid memories are of working with her in Yes Boss where she played Shah Rukh's mother and I always loved watching her in Sooraj Barjatya films. She was the ideal mom and his films would be incomplete without her."
He was quoted as saying to Pinkvilla, "I got to know from you. I didn't know about it. It's shocking and sad at the same time. I just have reached on the sets and I might have to cancel the shoot for today."
