The early years and personal life
Reema was born to Javed Khan Bangash and Syan in Sahiwal, Pakistan. Completing high school from the Pakistan Convent, she was spotted by the Pakistani movie director Javed Fazil and was offered the leading role in Bulandi(1990), starring opposite Shaan.
In 1990, when Reema started her film career through Javed Fazil’s Bulandi, it was the reign of veteran actresses like Anjuman, Neeli, Nadra and Shahida Minni. The great success of Javed Fazil’s Bulandi not only helped Reema khan to stick in Pakistani film industry also gave a lovely pair of Reema and Shan, success key of every film. The paired dazzled the audience with their performance and later became the icons of Pakistan film industry.
Reema’s early films with Shan, such as, Zherilay, Ishq, Naag Devta, Pyar Hi Pyar, Sailab, Dil, Aag, Shama and Sahiba inspired Pakistani film viewers due to her acting. However, the real period of her success starts from 1993 when she got hit films with Shan, such as, Hina, Anjuman, Chakuri, Chandni, Neelam and Insaniat., When she appeared on silver screen with Mohsin Khan in directress Shameem Ara’s film “Hathi Meray Sathi”, made a big success. However, Reema’s acting talent prominently appeared in the film of director Altaf Hussain’s “Rani Beti Raj Karegi”. Where Reema proved herself a good actress in Hathi Meray Sathi, there she proved herself a good dancer in “Rani Beti Raj Karegi” as well.
In 1994 Shameem Ara produced another hit film “Beta” with the team of Hathi Meray Sathi (Reema, Mohsin Khan, Rambo and Sahiba). And after the success of Beta, Reema achieved the status of top most actress of Lollywood. In very next year Reema appeared in film “Munda Bigra Jaye” with a new hero Baber Ali, was given a new soul to Pakistan Film Industry in the same year with Syed Noor’s film Jeeva. The pair of Reema and Baber Ali won the hearts of Pakistani film viewers and gave many hit films to their fans, such as, Jo Darr Gaya Woh Mar Gaya, Sarak, Love 95, Chor Machaey Shoor, Mamila Garbar Hai, Hum Tu Chaley Susral and Laghat-e-Jigar.
Reema appeared in later films with Saud, Ajab Gul, Izhar Qazi and Muamar Rana as well. But the graph of her successful films started to fell down and financiers turned their face towards Saima. In 2002 Reema’s two films released, Asif Ali Pota’s “Fire” and Samina’s “Shararat”. Both films went flop and made it more difficult for Reema to maintain her top position. And within that period when Reema announced to direct a film, critics said that her acting career has been finished. Now her first debut as a directress “Koi Tujh Sa Kahan” has been released all over Pakistan and has been declared the most successful film of 2005.
