To the Nigerian lovers of Zee world and Nollywood, your valentine’s present came early. Like a collision of two energetic lovers, Nollywood in collaboration with Bollywood is set to release a romantic comedy, titled ‘Namaste Wahala’ on Valentine’s day. An icing to this loving gesture is that it’s a Netflix original, so you see, rather than catch a loveless fever on valentine’s day (seeing lovers on a PDA spree at the cinema) especially if you’re single, you won’t need to visit the cinema’s for this one.
‘Namaste Wahala’ is directed and produced by Bollywood’s talented Hamisha Daryani Ahuja. It was first announced in February 2020 and ought to have been released in April 2020 but for the ill-luck, that graced the pandemic.
No! It wasn’t shot in India but in Nigeria. It stars renowned Nollywood and Bollywood talents Ini Dima- Okoji and Ruslaan Mumtaz, who are both in love but are faced with cultural differences.
The movie also stars Joke Silva, Richard Mofe Damijo, Osas Ighodaro, Broda Shaggi, Anee Icha, K10, Ibrahim Suleiman, Imoh Eboh, and Big Brother Naija’s Frood.
