Reham Khan, the wife of Pakistan’s political stalwart and ex-cricketer Imran Khan, got meteoric fame after marrying the chairman of Pakistan’s second largest political party this year. She has worked as broadcast journalist in United Kingdom before shifting to Pakistan last year. Janaan is expected to great deal of hype due to Reham Khan’s name associated with it.
We are very excited about this film and looking forward to more details.
