The actor is in a deep shock with this huge loss. The actor choked up while talking to us about his fond memories of the veteran actress. He said, “I have done a lot of cinema with Reema ji , on account of that we have spent a lot of time on sets. What came through about her was that she was a warm and gracious human being. She was a senior actor to us, but however we never felt the divide, we always felt very warm and welcome with her. There was no kind of generation gap with her, we could fool around since she would understand where we are coming from. We were so connected with her that on set, the first question we asked was is Reema ji on set. She was like a friend, who was just a little older.” (ALSO READ: Reema Lagoo dead: Namkaran co-stars Barkha Bisht, Sayantani Ghosh share fond memories of the veteran actress) Also Read - Sanjivani 2: Dr Shashank Gupta aka Mohnish Bahl 'Feels Like Yesterday' While Working With Dr Juhi Aka Gurdeep Kohli

Mohnish also regrets not being able to meet her, “I haven’t met her in a good many years, I have not been working and whatever little work I have done was not with her. I always had a thought, rather wish in mind that Sooraj (Barjatya) should make a film with the same cast & crew he has worked with earlier. If that happens now, the void, the vacuum created by Reema ji’s death will always remain,” the actor signed off.
