“Sulaiman and Kasim said we are proud of you Amma after watching my film”: Jemima Goldsmith
In a recent interview, Jemima Goldsmith shared the priceless reaction of her sons Sulaiman Khan and Kasim Khan after they watched her upcoming film “What’s Love Got To Do With It?”.
Jemima stated, “their reaction has definitely been the highlight of my whole experience. They are not rom-com lovers [and] they don’t like those kinds of films — they are my biggest critics. And obviously, they’re half Pakistani Muslim kids so whether they liked it or not was very very important to me”.
“I got them in to see it and at the end of it, I could see them being a little tearful. I also heard them laughing and they said ‘Amma we’re so proud of you”, Jemima said this and added that they knew I’ve worked hard on the movie.
The filmmaker also shared the reason behind making a film like that. “I set it as a challenge for myself and I also wanted to write a film that celebrated Pakistan. I wanted to show the colourful, beautiful, joyful place that I knew when I was in Pakistan as opposed to Pakistan we often see on Western screens”.
