Nigerian Multiple award winning Nollywood producer, Kunle Afolayan, has revealed that his upcoming movie, Mokalik, is nothing like the regular.
According to him, the movie is meant to tell the world that education isn’t just limited to the classrooms. It is a story that’s dear to his heart, he said and he is not looking at commercializing it. Though it is an indigenous movie, he is targeting the Oscars with it, he said.
Kunle Afolayan also speaks on female actors offering sex for movie roles.
Noting that such has never happened to/with him before, he revealed that no one has the guts to come to him with such. Though he has heard that female actors are ready to give anything for movie roles, he hasn’t encountered it befog, he said.
He however, noted that he will wave it off if such ever happens to him.
Excerpts from the interview below;
“I am not shooting this as a commercial film, I am targeting Oscars and that is why it is an indigenous film. This is a story close to my heart.”
“Personally I have never encountered a situation whereby an actress would offer me sex for a movie role. They would not even dare come to me. They say that I am proud.”
“The social media may have some advantages, but it also has a lot of disadvantages. It is only in the past that people would say that a director asked an actress for sex in exchange for a movie role. These days, some actresses would reach out to the movie director or producer and tell him that they would do anything just to be in the film.”
“Hardly would they say such to me. Such a thing does not come to me and if it ever happens, I will just wave it aside. I will not respond.”
