Salman Khan to pay tribute to Reema Lagoo at IIFA Awards 2017
Few weeks ago, Indian cinema lost one of its most talented artistes, with the demise of veteran actress Reema Lagoo. The actress had passed away on May 18 and will be remembered forever with her memorable performances in films like ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!’, ‘Hum Saath – Saath Hain’ and many more. Salman Khan, who played her onscreen son in these and several other movies, is planning to pay a special tribute to her.
Reports suggest that a special tribute is being planned at the upcoming International Indian Film Awards (IIFA) event for Reema Lagoo. During the press conference held for IIFA 2017, Salman said at the event, “Reemaji had played my mother in some films, starting with ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’. Off-screen, she was like a friend with me. She was a lovely human being. It feels like I’ve lost my onscreen mother.” (Also Read: Salman Khan turns saviour for Kapil Sharma and his show?)

The event of IIFA 2017 is all set to take place in New York in the coming month of July.
