Tonight, the last episode of Naamkarann will go on air. Needless to say, fans of the show are extremely disheartened. They had flooded social media with requests to retain the show but none of their pleas were heard. It is ending tonight and fans are very emotional as they will not see their favourite pair of Zain Imam (Neil Khanna) and Aditi Rathore (Avni) from tonight. It is also depressing as it today it is also Zain’s birthday. However, there is someone who is being missed as well. It is veteran actress, Reema Lagoo. The veteran actress who regaled us with fabulous performances in films and TV shows breathed her last on this day. It is a coincidence that the show is also ending on her first death anniversary. On the show, she played the role of the orthodox Dayawanti Mehta who opposes her son’s (Viraf Patel) decision to marry a Muslim girl, Ayesha (Barkha Bisht Sengupta). After Bhatt’s emotional tribute even fans paid their respects to the late actress.

Reema Ji began her journey with me with Aashiqui. She was an exceptional person and an actor with great emotional depth. It was she who infused life into my show Naamkaran . I am so fortunate to have met her on this journey of life. 🙏 https://t.co/MM3l8L95zT

Naamkarann was based on Mahesh Bhatt’s life and his struggle with illegitimacy. While the show did not pick up initially, it was a hit after the leap. People adored the chemistry between Zain Imam and Aditi Rathore. Stay tuned to BL for more updates!
