Her film is premiered in London and Toronto receiving a lot of praise. The amazing thing to me has been the British Asian response to our film, she added. Jemima chuckles as she adds that Now All I have to worry about is Pakistanis response.
She said that I have visited Pakistan a lot and we have never seen the beautiful picture of Pakistan on our screen. The hospitality of Pakistani people, their love for everyone and perfect taste in food, music and everything is so fine. The film “What’s Love got to do with it” just tried to portray some good and positive picture of Pakistan.
The British Producer and author revealed that “When I was first out in Pakistan, I thought there’s a festival going on as all the trucks on roads were painted with beautiful art, it really surprised me a lot that every single bus and vehicle is painted with this much pride, after that I became obssesed with truck art”.
