Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoled Lagoo’s death. In a message, he said, “Reema Lagoo was a versatile actor who left a big impact in the film & TV world. Her demise is saddening. My deepest condolences.”

Lagoo’s son-in-law Vinay Waikul said, “She was complaining of chest pain, so we took her to hospital around 1am. She passed away due to a heart attack around 3:15am.”

“She was perfectly fine and had no health issues...so it is really shocking for all us that she is no more with us,” he added.

Lagoo appeared in Marathi and Hindi films, besides doing a number of TV shows.

She is survived by daughter Mrunmayee, who is also a theatre and film actor and theatre director.
