Nollywood Partners Bollywood in New Movie ‘Namaste Wahala’
Most of us can recall movie titles like the “Burning Train“, “Mard“, “Nargin“, “Kuchi Kuchi Hota hai“. We can even reel off the names of Bollywood super stars like the Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Dharam Singh Deol known by his mononymous stage name Dharmendra and so on. Nigerians have seen at least one Bollywood movie in their lifetime, and that is because Indian movies are popular on the African continent.
Although the number of Indians who watch Nollywood movies are quite small, that is about to change because a major Nollywood-Bollywood collaboration is coming to the cinemas this April.
”Namaste Wahala” The romantic comedy collaboration between Nollywood and Bollywood will officially drop in March 2020.
The film produced by Bollywood filmmaker, Hamisha Daryani Ahuja stars Nollywood’s Ini Dima-Okojie, Richard Mofe Damijo, Osas Ighodalo, Ibrahim Suleiman, Broda Shaggi and Bollywood’s Ruslaan Mumtaz.
Ini Dima broke the news on her page with the write up below:
Guysssss so over the past few weeks, I’ve been on set as part of the cast for this beautiful movie #NamasteWahala.
We’re finally done filming and I can’t wait for you to see it 🤗🤗🤗 Namaste Wahala is a love story that cuts across the cultures of two countries – India & Nigeria.
