Veteran actress Reema Lagoo is all set entertain us on the small screen once again, albeit on a serious note in the upcoming serial Lakhon Mein Ek.
Reema Lagoo said, "I am very happy with the role that I am playing. This story has touched me and I am sure it will touch each and every woman in the country. I am glad and delighted that there are people who are taking a very strong stand and encouraging widow-remarriage."
Television in India is certainly making a sincere effort to address social issues. After serials like Balika Vadhu and Na Aana Is Des Laado - that revolved around child marriage and female foeticide respectively, now it will take up the issue of widow remarriage.
The veteran actress is known mostly in Bollywood for playing the mother to actor Salman Khan on screen, in films like Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Saath-Saath Hain, Judwaa and Patthar Ke Phool.
One of her most notable performances was in Vaastav, where she played a mother to Sanjay Dutt - who kills her own son.
Reema Lagoo is also known for her comic timing in comedy serials like Tu Tu, Main Main and Shriman Shrimati.
