An ambitious Hausa movie, Gudun Tsira would gulp a whopping sum of N10 million, the film’s producer, Nuhu Abdullahi, has revealed.
At the official script presentation and unveiling of the movie held at Paradise Hot Restaurant in Kano on Tuesday, Mr Abdullahi, a popular Kannywood actor, said shooting of the movie would commence on March 28 and last for two to three weeks.
Mr Abdullahi, who played a key role in blockbuster Ashabul Kahfi, said the rationale behind the script presentation was to enable the characters to familiarise with one another in a bid to ease shooting of the film.
He further explained that the movie was produced in order to enlighten the public on the dangers of reckless driving on the roads.
He expressed hope the movie would reduce the rate of accidents on the roads as it portrayed the implication of recklessness on roads and how to do away with it.
“This movie would gulp 7 to 10 million naira. When released, it would make a lot of drivers to come to their senses as it portrays the dangers of recklessness.
“The essence of organising this event is to make the characters that would appear in the movie to familiarise. Those who have grudges with one another would be able to reconcile in a bid to make the movie successful,” he said.
Mr Abdullahi also said the film was made in accordance with the ethics of film making industries and does not violate the religion, norms and values of the northern region.
One of the film’s protagonists, Ali Nuhu, a popular Kannywood ace, expressed delight to feature at the film that was the first to be produced by Mr Abdullahi.
He said the presentation was a form of publicity and familiarisation, saying “I will give my best for the success of the movie”.
