A legend lost: Reema Lagoo’s unforgettable roles that will live on forever in our hearts
'Maine Pyar Kiya'
Director Sooraj R. Barjatya’s ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ was undoubtedly the turning point in Reema Lagoo’s career. She had played the part of Salman Khan’s mother in the film. Her scenes with the actor were very endearing and relatable. The scene where she takes a stand against her onscreen husband supporting the love of Prem and Suman surely made everyone notice of her acting prowess.
‘Aashiqui’ witnessed Reema Lagoo delivering a mature performance, that of the mother of Rahul Roy’s character. She played a woman whose husband had left her, but her character was never portrayed as weak and helpless. Reema Lagoo’s performance had fetched her second consecutive nomination for the prestigious Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress.
'Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!'
After ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, Reema Lagoo yet again teamed up with director Sooraj R. Barjatya and delivered one of the most successful films in her career 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!'. Who can forget Reema’s endearing smile and charm in the iconic song ‘Samdhi Samdhan’ which was picturised on her with co-stars Alok Nath and Anupam Kher. Her emotional scenes in the second half of the film when her daughter Pooja (played by Renuka Shahane) dies surely brings a tear to everyone’s eyes.
'Hum Saath Saath Hain'
‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ perfectly showed the versatility of Reema Lagoo as an intense performer. Her character was inspired from that of Kaikeyi in 'Ramayana', someone who adores her stepson but later on gets brainwashed enough to turn against him. She was perfect in every frame, and delivered every line with utmost conviction, be it of love, or that of a biased mother who differentiates between her blood-son and stepson.
'Vaastav: The Reality'
Directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, 'Vaastav: The Reality' witnessed by far one of the most heart-touching and best performance of Reema Lagoo's career. She played the part of Sanjay Dutt’s mother and every single scene where the reel mother-son duo shared screen space, was beautiful. We can never forget her performance in the last scene when she shoots her beloved son at point blank, for he wants to get rid of the muck of crime he is so deep into, and he wants his mother to kill him, for only death can absolve him of that life.
'Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai'
Yet another heart-touching performance where Reema Lagoo delivered her best act. Her emotional scenes with her onscreen son Govinda are sure to leave a lump in your throat. Though the film didn’t work much at the box office, her performance is still remembered as one of the prime highlights of this film.

When Saif Ali Khan revealed the bitter truth about his divorce with Amrita Singh
Going separate ways
"My wife and I have gone our separate ways. I respect my wife's space. But why am I being constantly reminded of how terrible a husband I was, and how awful a father I am."
When Saif cried for his children
"I've my son Ibrahim's photograph in my wallet. Each time I look at it, I feel like crying. I miss my daughter Sarah all the time. I'm not allowed to meet my children. They aren't allowed to come to visit me, let alone stay with me. Right now my kids are growing up with Amrita's relatives and maidservants while she's out working in a TV serial. Why does she need to do that, when I'm more than willing to support my family?"
When Saif gave alimony to Amrita
"I'm supposed to give Amrita Rs 5 crore, of which I've already given her approximately Rs 2.5 crore. Also, I'm paying Rs 1 lakh per month until my son becomes 18."
When Saif slogged to pay her money
"I'm not Shah Rukh Khan. I don't have that kind of money. I've promised her I'll pay up the rest of the money, and I will, even if I've to slog till I drop dead. Whatever I've earned from doing ads, stage shows and films is being given for my children."
When Saif felt worthless
"I've no money. Our bungalow is for Amrita and the kids, and never mind the relatives who've joined her after my departure. Rosa and I stay in a pokey two-room apartment. Still, I've never been more at peace with myself. After a long long time I feel my self-worth has returned. It isn't nice to be constantly reminded of how worthless you are. And to have taunts, jeers, insults and abuses thrown at your mother and sister all the time. I've gone through all of it. Now I feel healed again."
When Rosa Catalano made Saif happy
"Today, if I've found someone who actually makes me feel I'm worth something, what's wrong with it? Earlier, I had hit such a rock bottom with my self-esteem that I'd be shocked if someone complimented me for my looks! Today if someone says something nice, I say, ‘That's fine. Stars are supposed to be complimented'. Unlike Amrita, Rosa is not from the film industry. Sure, I liked being put in touch with the industry's bigwigs by Amrita, having dinner with Karan Johar, etc. But in hindsight I'd have been better off finding my way through the industry."
When Saif went on a clarification spree
"There's a theory that I became whatever I am because Amrita took me by my finger and led me through it all. She has played a big hand in my growth as an actor and human being."
When Saif wanted a non-actress as a lover
"It's a blessing to be with a woman who has nothing to do with movies. Even Shah Rukh's wife Gauri keeps out of his career. I'd like to keep it that way."
When Saif terribly wanted his kids
"I really want my kids. But I don't want to put up a constant fight over them. If they are to be taken away from me then let Amrita call them Sarah Singh and Ibrahim Singh."
When Saif had the courage to walk away
"Please don't kill me with a feeling of constant guilt just because I've had the courage to finally walk away from an impossible relationship to find some solace."
