Fijians have talent: Indian movie director
More than 80 Fijians have shown their acting talents in the upcoming movie Feeling Lucky.
The comedy thriller, directed by Devesh Pratap Singh and produced by Dreamz Productions, had its movie poster and teaser trailer launched in Suva last Wednesday.
Director Devesh Singh said: “I believe there is a lot of acting talents here in Fiji and Fiji is very beautiful country to shoot a movie.” The place in which the movie was shot is Nadi, Suva, Lautoka, Sigatoka, Ba and Denarau in Fiji. “Previously, when we came to Fiji for the premier of the movies Urban Turban and Twisted Families, we then decided to shoot our next movie here in Fiji,” he said. Mr Singh said their upcoming movie, Feeling Lucky, would make every Fijian feel proud and appreciate the talents of those Fijians who have acted in the movie. Actor Rishi Deepak said: “I am very happy that my movie trailer for Feeling Lucky is launched in Fiji.
“After watching this movie, people will definitely love to visit beautiful places in Fiji which they have not seen or visited,” he said. Mr Deepak said 70 per cent of the movie location has been shot in Fiji and 30 per cent in New Zealand. The movie is expected to hit the theatres in Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, India, United States and United Kingdom in August.
“I would like to advise all Fijians to watch our movies in theatres and you will surely enjoy it,” he said. Edited by Manasa Kalouniviti
