Nagpur: From portraying a friendly and loving mother on celluloid to playing substantial characters onscreen, the veteran actor Reema Lagoo has come a long way in her three decade long career. Currently seen in TV series Naamkarann as grandmother Dayavanti, Reema visited Nagpur to meet and greet her fans.
During her brief journey in Nagpur, Reema spoke about her show which is airing on Star Plus.
The story line of Naamkarann revolves around little Avni (played by Arsheen Namdaar), who is a illegitimate child, whose father Ashish (Played by Viraf Patel) and her mother Asha (Played by Barkha Bisht Sengupta) had a religious marriage only and are not legally recognized as husband and wife. Asha and Ashish still have a live-in relationship, which is unknown by the rest of the world and specially Ashish’s family. However, Avni gets continuously teased by others because of her father’s absence. She deeply wishes for her family to become a ‘normal’ one but her father stays away most of the time due to her grandmother Dayavanti (Played by Reema Lagoo), who does not know that her son is already married. Ashish who is scared of his mother, has never mentioned about his secret marriage as his wife Asha is actually a Muslim. In this journey, Avni realises that Dayavanti too is a victim of her past and learns to forgive her.
Talking to media people, Reema said that television has always been a beautiful journey. She claimed her character is of a strong woman who has lived a successful life and has grown from strength to strength. Her struggles have made her son an extremely successful professional and she is extremely proud of this fact.
While speaking to Nagpur Today she said that the USP of Naamkarann is its music as it has 8 songs which are sung by renowned singers including Arijit Singh, Anu Malik and many more.
Answering to a question she said live-in relationship is a shortcut and a very vast subject which is difficult to judge. Everyone have different perspective. For some people it is fair while for some it is unfair.
When asked about her advice to the new comer actors and actresses she said new comers are born talented all they need is to understand what is meant for them and what is not!!!
