Veteran Bollywood actress Reema Lagoo passed away on May 18, at the age of 59 after reportedly suffering from cardiac arrest. After the actress complained of chest pain on Wednesday night, she was rushed to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Andheri, Mumbai where she breathed her last.
Her untimely demise left the nation and her friends-fraternity in a state of shock. After her ex-husband Vivek Lagoo, now her daughter Mrunmayee speaks on her mother’s demise.
While talking to Spotboye.com, she said “It’s too soon to talk about her at length. It hasn’t sunk in yet. It was very shocking. My mother was my best friend. I was not ready. Frankly, I could never have been ready. I have lost my mother too early. The void cannot be filled by anybody ever. All I can hope is that her soul is at peace and she has gone to a place where she has a better existence than she had here.”
Mrunmayee is married to Vinay Waikul. Mrunmayee and Vinay became man and wife in 2014. Vinay works as an Assistant Director.
Mrunmayee has worked as Script Supervisor on many films including Dangal, PK and Gulaab Gang. She was an Assistant Director on Aamir Khan’s show Satyamev Jayate.
Reema was prominently recognised for her roles in both Hindi and Marathi films. She debuted in films in 1979 with the Marathi film “Sinhasan”. Workaholic Reema had even shot for a film that wound up two months ago before she died. The Marathi movie is directed by Seema Upadhyay and is titled ‘Bhram’.
