From the trailer of Namaste Wahala, we get a peek long enough to see that the plot inherits the age old tale of love – Boy and girl fall for each other, both families do not approve of their love and they must fight to be together. A story line as old as Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Namaste Wahala is an Indian-Nigerian love story born out of Indian filmmaker Hamisha Daryani Ahuja’s inspiration.
Having lived partly in Nigeria and India, Hamisha says the story came from her desire to do what no one has done before on this scale and that is merging the two beautiful cultures together. Thus, she creates this beautiful film.
Speaking to CNN, Ahuja says
“The story has been in my head for a long time but I wanted it to be completely accurate. I wanted both cultures to be portrayed the same, that no culture was above the other”
She goes further to reveal that it futures the classic singing and dancing scenes that we all love. Lets see how that works out on Lagos soil. Lol.
