Reema Lagoo started playing a mother’s role when she was only 30. She played mother to Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt who were only a few years younger than her. In fact, she even played mother to Rishi Kapoor who was actually a few years older than her. Ever since the news of Reema Lagoo’s sudden death left her friends and fans shocked, she is being feted as Bollywood’s favourite mother. However, the question we need to ask is whether the industry did justice to her talent.

Taking to Twitter, film writer Apurva Asrani wrote, “I wish we wrote better roles for actresses. #ReemaLagoo’s immense talent was traded in for stereotypical mother roles, from the age of 30!” Here is a break up of the actors to whom Reema played mother.
