Shubhangi Atre Poorey
Actress Shubhangi Atre Poorey, who shared screen space with Reema Lagoo in the TV show "Do Hanson Ka Jodaa", says the late actress was a talent house.
Reema, one of Bollywood's favourite on-screen mothers, passed away on Thursday following a cardiac arrest.
Reminiscing the time she spent with her, Shubhangi said in a statement: "I was excited to know the very first day that Reema ji was portraying my mother in the show. I was quite happy that the finest actress and popular on-screen mother to many superstars would be sharing screen space with me and I would be seen as her daughter."
"She was a talent house and I learned many things from her like acting skills and professionalism. She used to pamper me a lot and was concerned about me on the sets. I remember she had no attitude or tantrums regarding make-up rooms or food which was served on the sets."
The two also shared "vada pav tales" as they were fond of it.
"She used to add fun to the sets as our show had many emotional scenes. She used to crack jokes after the shoot so, we returned home with fresh mood and positivity. Even after the show went off air, we used to communicate and she used to guide me. I will miss her for sure," said the "Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain" actress.
