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 her was at a show dedicated to the legendary playback singer Geeta Dutt and 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.

There are certain jealous elements around you that will try to create obstacles in your path. The only way to overcome such forces is to ignore and concentrate on your work. At a social function or party you feel bored. It is not easy to make friends that fast so look for the best in others. Be a good listener and you will be surprised at how many friends you make.
