Reema Lagoo died today morning after suffering cardiac arrest. Her last on-screen son Viraf Patel took to Facebook to write an emotional post about her

Reema Lagoo’s death proves that life is unpredictable. The actress passed away due to a cardiac arrest late last night. Reema Lagoo was shooting for her TV serial Naamkaran till yesterday. On hearing the news Viraf Patel, who essayed the role of Reema Lagoo’s son in Naamkaran, wrote an emotional post on Facebook. In the post, Virat revealed how amazing it was to work with her and heaped praises on Reema for being affectionate.

Inspired by Mahesh Bhatt’s 1998 movie Zakhm, Naamkaran tells the story of a Hindu-Muslim couple. In the serial, Reema essayed the role of  Dayavanti Mehta, Ashish’s mother. She was seen as a cunning mother who did not want her son Ashish to be with Asha (Barkha Bisht), in the serial. To ensure that Ashish and Asha stayed away from each other.

As convincing as Reema was as the antagonist, in real life she was not even close to her behaviour on screen. And this was proved through Viraf’s post. In his heartbreaking post, Viraf wrote that he had a fight with Reema a few days ago but she asked him to start afresh.
