Salman Khan has planned to give a special tribute to his on-screen mother Reema Lagoo at the International Indian Film Awards (IIFA) event in July. The actress had passed away last month on 18th May due to a cardiac arrest.
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, “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.”.
