In the ’90s, Reema Lagoo established herself as the mother of Bollywood, even though she was only a couple of years older than many of the actors she played the mother for, much to the chagrin of many. She starred in several iconic blockbusters of the time, including Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Saath Saath Hai. She was immortalized as the demure and sweet mother. Her co-star and her on-screen daughter, Renuka Shahane, believed there was so much more to her and it was a shame she didn’t get a chance to explore her talents beyond her mother avatar.

Speaking to Cinestaan ​​in 2017, Renuka said, “I don’t think the Hindi cinema audience knows her talent,” she said. “She never got the kind of roles befitting her talent, except maybe in Vaastav (1999). But other than that, she never got too many strong roles. She had so much versatility. But she was always relegated as the sweet and understanding mother. I have seen her at Savita Damodar Paranjpe and Ghar Tighancha Hava. They are nuances that she has expressed on stage, which are outstanding. People never really explored that aspect of her on screen, which was a shame. However, she was never really upset about it.”

Renuka shared a close relationship with Reema Lagoo, to the point that when Renuka’s character died in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, Lagoo couldn’t stop crying.

“She could turn on and off easily. But during the sequence when I die in the hospital, she affected her so deeply that she couldn’t stop crying even after Soorajji. [Barjatya] said ‘cut’. She took a long time and I got up from her and hugged her very tight and told her I’m alive. Her emotions in the sequence were so real.” Renuka also added that Reema Lagoo was ‘protective of her’, and that they shared the same makeup room and even had the same tiffin box.

After Reema Lagoo’s death in 2017, Renuka wrote an emotional tribute. She wrote: “Hum Aapke Hain Koun”… I played your daughter. I would joke with you that I am not suitable to play your daughter since you are so beautiful…” You would laugh out loud at this comment, playfully slap me, and say “काहीतरीच काय!” If an actor became too friendly, you would help me out of that situation… I could spend hours watching you prepare. Although you would want to get ready as quickly as possible because you didn’t mind spending time on makeup. You didn’t need it much because you were so naturally beautiful.”

At the time, Mohnish Bahl, who had played her son on screen in Hum Saath Saath Hai, had also written a note about his bond with her. “Not many know that she was only a few years older than most of the actors she played as a mother. As far as I was concerned, my camaraderie with Reemaji was crackling,” she had written. Mohnish also recalled that she would live in the building across from his, and she and his wife would converse through gestures. He also added that he would always regret not starring in more movies with her.

Reema Lagoo died at the age of 59 in 2017, after suffering cardiac arrest. She had starred in Bollywood as well as Marathi movies and the popular TV sitcom Tu Tu Main Main.
