A string of Bollywood faces like Boman Irani, Kunal Kohli and Madhur Bhandarkar have paid tributes to veteran film, stage and television actress Reema Lagoo, who died here early on Thursday following a cardiac arrest.

One of the most brilliant actresses in Bollywood movies, Reema Lagoo has played iconic roles in Indian cinema.

She played Khan's mother in his first film 28 years ago at the age of 31.

Also speaking to PTI, Lagoo's son-in-law Vinay Waikul said, "She was complaining of chest pain so we took her to the hospital around 1 AM". She was one of the most endearing mothers to grace the big screen and in fact it was her honesty in portraying the role that used to come across on the big screen that made her one of the most loved character actor on the big screen.
