LAHORE: TV anchor Reham Khan says that more films should be produced in Pakistan and more cinemas should be built.

She was talking to the media at the International Film Festival at Alhamra on Friday.

Flanked by Indian actor Om Puri and film director Madhur Bhandarkar, Ms Khan said there was a dearth of film schools in Pakistan and there was a need for more facilities for filmmaking.

She said she had come to the festival as a filmmaker. It was great that two prominent film personalities from India were also attending the festival who were also given Excellence Awards by Rafi Peer Theatre Workshop.

She lauded Madhur Bhandarkar for making films on women issues, adding that a lot was to be done in Pakistan on women rights. She said she had finished shooting for her first film as a filmmaker.

Reham Khan asked how we could remain away from politics as now films were being made on politics.

Om Puri said he was already working in a Pakistani movie and would like to act more in Pakistani movies.

She is becoming almost as famous as Imran khan. Perhaps that was not acceptable for the former cricketing giant. Best of luck to Reham and more power to the feminists of our country.

One can make film on a very low budget as well, but it requires imagination and creativity.
