LAHORE: This is Reema’s second film as a director and she has faced a number of challenges along the way. A source close to the star that the film was initially titled Kitni Haseen Hai Zindagi but Reema changed the name to Love Main Gum (Lost in Love) after some consultations with professionals in the film industry.

Reema said that she had decided to direct a film because people were not putting in much effort into film industry despite the fact that filmmaking is a very important art. This project Love Main Gum is not only being directed by Reema but she has also invested her money into it. The film is already being termed as one of the most heavy budget movies of Lollywood and earlier Reema has said, “I am spending my savings on this movie and spending heavily to assure that quality isn’t compromised. I am hopeful that my hard work and my team’s hard work will pay off.”

The script of Love Main Gum is written by one of the most celebrated writers of Lollywood, Pervaz Kaleem and the lead roles are being played by Reema, Moammar Rana, new model Nabeel Khan and a young actor from Azerbaijan named Iraida. India’s famous comedian, Johnny Lever, also plays an important role in the movie.

Reema had started shooting for the movie in September 2008 and completed it by June 2009; the film has mainly been shot in Azerbaijan and Malaysia.

Other than script and locations, Reema has worked very hard on the films music which has largely been composed in Pakistan.

The songs in the film are written by noted poets Khawaja Pervaiz and Aqeel Rubby. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has sung two songs for the film while Abrarul Haq has also sung a song for the film.

Rana, who has undertaken a lead role in the film, told The Express Tribune that all the work for the film has been completed other than some production work. “We are all hopeful that the film will bring good news to Lollywood and we have all put in our best into it,” he said.

He added that the films promo will be released on this Eid and that Love Main Gum will hit cinemas soon after.
