No one can actually stop time from waving its wondrous hands. One
day we are young and thriving and before we know it, the bones become
weaker, the body becomes fragile and the wrinkles on the face appear out
of nowhere. In short, age starts showing its true colors. And when you
are an actor in the glamour industry, one sure short way to survive is
to openly adapt to changes and play the roles more suitable to the ages.
But amidst all that, there's one lady who, for more than past two
decades, has been portraying the role of a mother for which she has
always gained applause. That lady is none other than Reema Lagoo

roles have been of supporting ones, they are forever etched in the minds
of fans as she has always been an integral part of many blockbuster
movies. Starting from the evergreen tragic love story, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak

that it's hard to imagine the movie without her. Be it the doting,

the natural love she felt for her adoptive son in the family drama Hum Saath Saath Hain

's mother in the movie but here her character's
love for her son was treated in an astounding way for to save her son,
she ends up killing him with her own hands. Needless to say, this is one
script end which can't be ignored as Reema Lagoo
was nominated for the
Best Actress in Supporting Role at the prestigious Filmfare for her role
It just goes on to prove
that not every actress has to be the clad-in-white saree kind of a girl,
running around the trees singing songs to be recognized as a star. If
the comfort of playing the roles, suiting the age and personality is
there with the dedication to shine even in the most supporting of roles,
then anyone can be regarded as a shining gem among many in the star
studded industry of Bollywood. And Reema Lagoo
has done just that.

portrayed different kinds of on-screen mothers in the past decades of
Bollywood, she has earned a name and respect for herself which no one
can compare to. She has made her name go down in the Bollywood history
