Veteran Indian actress Reema Lagoo has died in Mumbai. 

Initial reports suggest she suffered cardiac arrest.

Lagoo, who was 58, was best known for playing supporting roles in some of Bollywood's biggest movies.

She starred in movies like 'Saajan', 'Vaastav', 'Dilwale', 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', and 'Kal Ho Naa Ho'.

She emerged as Indian cinema's new-age mother, breaking away from the older portrayal of the long-suffering Indian mother.  

She also became a household name with television serials like 'Tu Tu, Main Main' and 'Shrimaan Shrimati', where again she moved away from playing the malicious Indian mother-in-law. 

Lagoo also acted in Marathi films. 

Lagoo was acting in the daily soap 'Naamkaran' before she passed away.
