Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who has played the onscreen son oflehendry actress Reema Lagoo, in many of the Bollywood films, will pay a special tribute to the actress, who died last month, at the International Indian Film Awards (IIFA) event in July.
Reema passed away on May 18. She had shared screen space with Salman in films like “Saajan”, “Maine Pyar Kiya”, “Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!”, “Hum Saath-Saath Hain” and “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”.
Salman, who will be performing at the event, said here on Thursday: “Reemaji had played my mother in some films, starting with ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’. Off-screen, she was like a friend with me. She was a lovely human being. It feels like I’ve lost my onscreen mother.” Followed by his comment, IIFA officials confirmed: “We will dedicate certain moments in the performance for Reema Lagooji.”
