The music aficionado

Friday, May 19, 2017

Not many are aware, that ‘late’ Reema Lagoo known for her sterling performances, had a passion for listening to retro-Bollywood music. The former cheerful nationalised bank employee, who always nursed a love for theatre, plays and dramas before she became a full-fledged film actress, would often attend ‘live’ music concerts especially the ones hosted by impresario-compere Manohar Iyer (of ‘Keep Alive’). The last time this correspondent saw Reema was, at a recent show (on Feb 22) dedicated to the legendary playback singer Geeta Dutt and also at an informal concert which was a tribute to the celebrated film lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi.

“These immortal, evergreen retro-songs also serve as a  stress-buster for me as I love listening to them,” she reacted. What struck me was that the unassuming Reema who played ‘star-mother’ in over a dozen Hindi blockbusters always preferred to sit ‘incognito’ in the midst of the audience. Never would she expect, the event-anchor to announce her name and try to grab attention. Once the musical event had concluded, she would make it a point to discreetly head to the back-stage or green-room and interact with the singers. She would even sincerely thank them for the vocal treat.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Today will be an industrious day. The stars foretell that you may visit a historical place, or perhaps a museum. However, Ganesha says, you may need to pay a little attention to your health. If such is the case, it would be better to take the evening off for yourself.
