Actor Kagiso Modupe‘s new film Losing Lerato is set to air in cinemas across SA and eSwatini. Fans in Botswana will unfortunately not be able to catch the film due to red tape. While trying to publicise the film, Kagiso responded to a fan who asked about watching it in Botswana.
“Sorry man, we were supposed to be in Botswana next but I am disappointed at the reputation with regard to the films there. It’s just sad that one person’s botsotsi can affect the whole country. Either way, I hope you will get a chance to see the film.
In the movie, the actor plays a lead role alongside his daughter Tshimollo who made her acting debut on Scandal! at just six months. Funded by Kagiso and his wife Liza, the film is a South African story about a young successful black man who takes matters into his own hands as he fights for the right to see his daughter. He kidnaps his own daughter from school, hoping to start a new life in a new city, but all hell breaks loose and he finds himself in a bus “hostage” drama and finally coming face to face with the law.
It features well-known names such as Samela Tyelbooi, Thato Molamu, Connie Chiume, Mandla Gaduka, Don Mlangeni, Nolo Phiri, Fezile Makhanya, Ayanda Borotho, and Zandile Msutwana, among others. Losing Lerato is directed by Sanele Zulu and will open in local theatres from September 13.
