Let’s have a look at some of her films as a mother— CLICK NEXT TO READ!
Vaastav — The Reality: For me, this is by far the best role played by Reema Lagoo in her career. She not only played a doting mother and a lovely wife but also an equally daring yet helpless mother to the don Sanjay Dutt in the film. Our respects to her for playing such an earthy character onscreen.
Hum Aapke Hain Kaun: A doting and friendly mother, Reema Lagoon played a caring mother, mother-in-law and an equally beautiful wife in one of the most evergreen films. Her intense acting brings life to the whole family drama. The 1994 Sooraj Barjatya’s film starred Madhuri Dixit, Salman Khan, Mohnish Bahl, Renuka Shahane and many others in the lead.
Hum Saath Saath Hain: Reema Lagoo’s role transformation in the films has been brilliant. In Hum Saath Saath Hain, she transforms from a doting mother to a selfish step-mother. It sounds easy, but it is quite difficult to portray such a transformation onscreen, considering that Indian audience might not accept a mother being vicious. The film stars actor Mohnish Behl, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Karishma Kapoor. While Alok Nath, Reema Lagoo and Neelam Kothari, Mahesh Thakur play pivotal supporting roles.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai: Reema Lagoo here not only played a caring and worried mother to Anjali (Kajol) but also a caring mother in law to Salman Khan in the film. She outshines the role of a typical mother by opening her heart out like a best friend to her daughter, who is unhappy with her (Anjali) engagement.
Kal Ho Naa Ho: A best friend cum mother to Aman, portrayed by Shah Rukh Khan, Reema Lagoo played a perfect modern day woman in the film. We heart the way she played a modern day mother who is also a support system for the son!
