Most in my generation of non-Marathi speaking fans discovered him via Hindi films, in my case, Lawaaris, which began a life long journey of imbibing his great works. Dr. Lagoo was a legend in every sense of the word." Prakash Javadekar too took to Twitter, and wrote, "My tributes to all-time great artist Shreeram Lagoo. We have lost a versatile personality. A unique theatre actor dominated the silver screen and created an impact. He was social activists simultaneously."
