20 Kannywood actors and producers attend film training course in India

Twenty Kannywood actors and film makers left Nigeria for India on September 28 to participate in a film training programme at the Asian School of Media Studies in Noida, New Delhi, India.

The training was sponsored by the federal ministry of finance.

The group included Ali Nuhu, Jamilu Yakasai, Mustapha Mustapha (Musty), Bashir Rijau, Mohammed Bifa, Ibrahim Mandawari, Hamisu Iyantama, Sani Abdullahi, Aliyu Yakasai, Bala Babinlata and Hauwa Maina.

Others were Farida Rahi, Balarabe Tukur, Usman Adamu, Ishaq Ishaq, Umar Labaran, Falalu Dorayi, Mika’il Bin Hassan (Gidigo) and Aminu Sabo.
The group is expected to visit movie locations to interact with some Bollywood actors and producers and discuss how to improve on film production in Kannywood.

Producer, Babinlata, who spoke to PREMIUM TIMES, said they were on the trip to learn more on movie production and marketing.

“Kannywood is getting bigger by the day and we need to have this kind of training and exposure so that everything will be done in a more professional way,” he said.

He described the trip as one of a kind.

It is expected that when the group returns, it would hold similar trainings and share its experiences with other Kannywood actors and film makers.

The group is expected to return by the first week of November.

    No wonder Indian films are now mimicked in Hausa language. Hope its not going to be a further cultural adulteration.
