Indian-Nigerian movie set for release
Indian-Nigerian movie Namaste Wahala, which should have launched in cinemas last April but was delayed due to the pandemic, will now be released this April.
Details of the streaming platforms that will carry the movie have yet to be announced.
The romantic comedy is produced by Indian-born businesswoman-turned-filmmaker Hamisha Daryani Ahuja and revolves around a cross-cultural love story between an Indian and a Nigerian.
Ahuja, producer and director of the movie, took to Instagram to drop the big news. “A lot of you have been asking where Namaste Wahala, a Bollywood/Nollywood love story, is. A movie produced and directed by yours truly,” she wrote.
“The experience has been magical and I am happy to say that this baby is getting a chance to see the world, or more accurately be seen by the world. Can’t wait to share this magic with you.”
Namaste Wahala features actors from both countries, including veteran Nollywood star Joke Silva plus Richard Mofe Damijo, Ini-Dima Okojie, Ruslaan Mumtaz, MI Abaga, Broda Shaggi, Segal Sujata, Adaora Lumina, Ibrahim Suleiman and Big Brother Naija’s Frodd.
