Bollywood a huge inspiration for Nigerian film industry: ‘Namaste Wahala’ director

Mumbai, Feb 15, 2021 –
Writer-director Hamisha Daryani Ahuja’s film Namaste Wahala is a love story between an Indian man and a Nigerian woman, and she says Bollywood has had a strong impact on Bollywood, or the Nigerian film industry.

“Nigerians have grown up watching and loving Bollywood films. Names like Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini and Shah Rukh Khan are household names in many parts. Many of my Nigerian friends have watched Hindi movies growing up and can even quote famous Hindi lines.

Bollywood is the second-largest film industry in the world in terms of output, second only to Bollywood. So Bollywood serves as a huge inspiration for us and I can’t wait to see how this new genre enfolds,” said Ahuja.

Namaste Wahala highlights the differences as well as colorful similarities between Indian and Nigerian cultures. The film stars Indian actor Ruslaan Mumtaz with Nigerian actress Ini Dima-Okojie.

The film dropped on Netflix on Valentine’s Day. (Agency)
