Reema Lagoo (Marathi: रीमा लागु) (born 1958) is an Indian actress who has appeared in numerous Marathi as well as Hindi films and television shows. She has had a presence on Marathi stage for nearly four decades.[citation needed] She has played a lead role in marathi serial "TUJA MAJA JAMENA".

Career[edit]

Reema Lagoo was born Nayan Bhadbhade in 1958.[citation needed] Her mother was an actress Mandakini Bhadbhade who was known for drama Lekure udand Jaahalee on the Marathi stage.[1] Lagoo's acting abilities were noted when she was a student at the Huzurpaga HHCP High school in Pune. Her professional acting started soon after finishing high school. Her first acting jobs were on the Marathi stage.[citation needed]

In late 1970s or early 1980s, she started acting in Hindi and Marathi films.[citation needed] She married Marathi actor Vivek Lagoo.[citation needed] After marriage, she took the name Reema Lagoo. The couple separated a few years later. They have a daughter named Mrunmayee who is also a stage and film actress.[2]

Lagoo has mostly acted in supporting roles with some of the biggest names in the Hindi film industry. Starting out with television serials, she rose in prominence with the film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) where she played Juhi Chawla's mother. She was seen in a controversial role in Aruna Raje's Rihaee (1988). She then starred in the blockbuster film Maine Pyar Kiya (1989) as Salman Khan's mother and then in "Saajan" (1991) a superhit success at the box office. After this she starred in action drama and crime thriller Gumrah (1993) as Sridevi's mother and Jai Kishen (1994) as Akshay Kumar's mother. Though Gumrah (1993) failed at the box office, Jai Kishen (1994) was a commercial success thus declared 'semihit' at the box office. She has starred in some of the biggest hits in the industry including the family drama Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (1994), Yeh Dillagi (1994), Dilwale (1994), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), and Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003).

Mostly playing a middle aged mother in films, earlier in her career she also played a dancer in Aakrosh (1980) and a cold-hearted businesswoman in Yeh Dillagi (1994). In 1990s she starred opposite Supriya Pilgaonkar in the television serial Tu Tu Main Main and also starred in Shrimaan Shrimati. Her role in Marathi suspense film Bindhast was well appreciated.

She has also delivered a challenging role in Vaastav: The Reality (1999); portraying Don's (Sanjay Dutt) mother who kills her own son. One of her most notable performances can be seen in a little-known movie Rui Ka Bojh (1997) also starring Pankaj Kapur and Raghuvir Yadav.

Lagoo has appeared on the Marathi show Maanacha Muzra, which honours Marathi personalities.[3] which is similar, in format, to the British TV show This is your life.

She is known mostly in Bollywood for playing the mother of actor Salman Khan's characters in films like Maine Pyar Kiya, Saajan, Hum Saath-Saath Hain: We Stand United, Judwaa and Patthar Ke Phool.
