president today condoled the demise of actress Reema Lagoo, whom she described as a "versatile actor".

"A household name, Lagoo was a versatile actress who portrayed an array of heart warming characters on screen and had always left a lasting imprint on the hearts and minds of the viewer," she said in a statement.

Gandhi also expressed her solidarity to the family and friends of the departed actor in this hour of grief.
