It’s not out of place to say that many Nigerians have seen at least one Bollywood movie in their lifetime, and that is because Indian movies are popular on the African continent.
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 Bachaans, Sharukhan, Dhramenda and so on. 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
Photographer Yagazie Emezi first shared the gist on her Twitter, and it looks to be a real thing!
So there’s a Bollywood Nollywood mash-up movie coming out called Namaste Wahala? Lmaoooooo, can’t imagine the double drama.
I need to stop eavesdropping honestly.
