There’s a lot of stigma attached to actors and actresses who are/were once part of Lollywood and it cannot be easily brushed off. Reema, on the other hand, has managed to not only revamp her image but also maintain it over the years. She is an eternal beauty – just doesn’t seem to age! She made her film debut in the ‘90s with Bulandi alongside Shaan Shahid and went on to become the undisputed queen of Lollywood. Following her marriage in 2011 to a surgeon based in the US, she decided to make family her prime focus and moved out of the country. After a long hiatus, the beautiful actress is set to make her comeback with a new talk show titled Heart 2 Heart on PTV this Eid.

While Reema has also donned the cap of a producer and director, hosting is not something she has tried her hand at. This will be the first time she takes up the job and we are sure she will pull it off with the same grace and demeanor she has always associated herself with.
Pakistani television has become all about talk shows – some are interesting, some lack substance and some just seem to go with the flow and follow no script. Heart 2 Heart, on the other hand, is well-planned and well-scripted from what we can gauge. It’s no surprise because the master of eloquence Dr. Omar Adil has penned the script down, and is also being produced by Qaiser Shareef.
When HIP got in touch with Dr. Adil, here’s what he had to say: “Heart 2 Heart is a weekly talk show which will be hosted by Reema. It will commence on Eid day and then every week, it will go on air at a primetime slot. It is a talk show which is dedicated to cine-celebrities; every week the viewers will enjoy a new guest who will talk about their life experiences, relationships and at times, also discuss the topic of declining popularity with age – a topic which we felt needs to be discussed especially with the yesteryear stars.”
When asked why he chose to write for PTV and not any other channel, he said:
“Because PTV has a wide range when it comes to the audience; they exist here as well as abroad and I wanted to be a part of a show which celebrated our legends who have contributed so much to the film as well as the television industry.”
Stars from all age groups have already been lined up to make their appearances on Heart 2 Heart; Anjuman, Anwar Maqsood, Farida Khannum, Nadeem sahab, Zeba Bakhtiar plus young ones like Ali Zafar too, who like the rest, also had some form of association with PTV at some point in his career.
The segments on this show will be a little unique too; a live singer will be there to perform on songs specifically related to the particular celebrity guest on the show plus fellow artists and friends/family of the celebrity guest will also be called on the show to give an insight into the person’s life and share their fondest of memories with them.

The first episode is a must-watch because industry veteran Anjuman will be seen after almost 25 years as a guest on PTV. We don’t know about you, but we cannot wait.
