How can we shoot into the room where daylight is prominantly coming inside & we don't have Hmi's or reflectors?

Well it depends on the room and the look you are after...

Why don't you have lights or reflectors ? budget restraints ?

What do you mean exactly by "shoot into the room"


Specifics please - the more info you give us, the more we can give you ...

I guess you use mostly natural light!

White foamcore works well as a VERY cheap reflector. Get some.

If daylight is prominent, that IS your main source. So if you don't have any reflectors or a reflector, make due with what you have.
