WASHINGTON: Pakistani actress Reema Khan has appealed to the new Indian Government to allow release of Pakistani movies, saying it would help in exchange of cultures of the two countries and develop their film industries.



"For the last couple of years, Indian films are being released in Pakistani theatres, which are a wonderful sign. Now I am expecting from Government of India to allow release of Pakistani films in Indian theatres.



"Through films, audiences of the two countries can be brought together. They can get a very strong message. They can understand the traditions, values and culture system which has developed in Pakistan," Reema told PTI on the sidelines of an awards ceremony organised by the America Abroad Media (AAM).



Having appeared in more than 200 films since making her debut in 1990, Reema, 43, was presented with the AAM's 2014 Partner Award for her role in series 'Reema Khan's America'.



Last year, Bollywood star Aamir Khan had received this award for his popular television serial 'Satyamev Jayate'. While praising Aamir, Reema said all South Asians feel proud of him.



"Being a celebrity, he is doing such a wonderful work. I really appreciate his efforts and the work that he is doing at the moment as an anchor (of Satyamev Jayate)," Reema, who settled down in the U.S. said.



The award winning series 'Reema Khan's America' follows her as she sets out to discover her new country through the eyes of the average Pakistani, testing her preconceptions about life in the United States and exploring what it means to be an American. The series aired in 2013 in Pakistan.



In the ceremony, AAM also felicitated Oscar-nominated director Paul Greengrass, influential Saudi journalist Turki Aldakhil, and documentary film organisation Impact Partners. It was co-chaired by former U.S. National Security Advisor Gen (rtd) Michael Hayden.
