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
