Reema Lagoo, The Kind Bollywood Mother, Passes Away

It was with a shock that I learnt of veteran Bollywood actress Reema Lagoo's passing away of a cardiac arrest. She was only 59!

Reema Lagoo (1958-2017). She will be missed.

I've always liked the characters she played in Bollywood movies - especially the role of a kind mother to a young man with serious problems.

My image of her is best captured by these two song clips, in each of which she makes a brief appearance towards the very end to comfort her son.

Ironically, in Kal Ho Na Ho, it's her son, played by Shah Rukh Khan, who has a serious heart condition

In Aashiqui, her son, played by Rahul Roy, has a heart problem of a different kind

Goodbye, Reema Lagoo. You will be missed.
