The English movie Feel­ing Lucky cast­ing some lo­cal tal­ent and ac­tors from New Zealand will pre­miere on Septem­ber 1 at lo­cal cin­e­mas. In an in­ter­view, Di­rec­tor Devesh Pratap Singh said the movie was about three best friends who travel to Fiji for a week­end get­away. “The movie will por­tray what hap­pens when three best friends get a chance to go from New Zealand to Fiji for a week­end to have some fun where they meet their fourth friend,” Mr Singh said. Mr Singh thanked the sup­port from the lo­cals and the Fi­jian Gov­ern­ment for their con­tri­bu­tion to the pro­duc­tion. “The sup­port we have re­ceived here has been tremen­dous; we def­i­nitely look for­ward to work­ing with the Fi­jians in fu­ture,” he said. Mr Singh said the movie was shot ex­ten­sively in Fiji. “70 per­cent of the movie was shot in Fiji while 30 per­cent in New Zealand with the movie be­ing shot in Lau­toka, Suva, Nadi, De­na­rau and a few is­lands,” Mr Singh said. “This movie will be trav­el­ling all over the world and Fiji will be seen with the beau­ti­ful scenery, mean­ing more tourist ar­rivals.” The pre­miere will also give lo­cals the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy the movie with the ac­tors from the movie. Mr Singh said the movie was a com­bi­na­tion of thriller, com­edy and sus­pense and he urged lo­cals to turn up in num­bers and be proud of be­ing Fi­jians while watch­ing the movie. The movie will also see prom­i­nent busi­ness­man Jagdish Punja play­ing a ma­jor role.
