“I can’t dance in saris, swaying by the wind anymore,” says Reema Khan

Reema Khan tied the knot with Dr Shahab Tariq in the US after which she took time off from showbiz. The last we saw her was when she performed at the prestigious Lux Style Awards last year. Since then she’s made a few public appearances. However, now she plans to make a true comeback to film and TV.

“I can’t dance in saris, swaying by the wind anymore,” she said in an interview to Instep. “Even if I’m offered something like that, I won’t. I will only take up a role if it is content-driven and gives me room to perform (something like Halle Berry’s Kidnap). It has to be something that suits one’s personality, which is why I’m trying to do most of that behind the camera.”

Having directed two films earlier, Reema is now looking to direct her third film which is being penned by Khalil-ur-Rehman.

“Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar is writing the script of my next film. He’s very busy with his own film right now but I’m adamant to bring back my original team from my first film because when I didn’t with my last film (Love Mein Ghum), I had to pay the price. From my own experience, I know that Khalil is a very competent writer and there are some delays from his end but as soon as he gets back to me, I’ll immediately begin shooting.”

“Since there are two men in the film, like always, I will try to give somebody new a chance, but some of the names on my list include actors such as Humayun Saeed, Babar Ali, Shaan and Fawad Khan,” she said talking about who she’d cast as the male lead.

Reema also cleared the air regarding her tiff with Shaan during the shoot of Love Mein Ghum.

“Shaan excused himself and later apologized also, and I cleaned my heart. We all have our ups and downs, and we all learn from life.”

And will we get to see Reema as the female lead in her own movie? Well, we probably won’t.

“After both my films, what I’ve realized is that when you’re the director and producer you should never act because you cannot do justice to it,” she stated.
