MUMBAI: Speaking on the same, the debutante director and producer of Namaste Wahala, Hamisha Daryani Ahuja says, "Nigerians have grown up watching and loving Bollywood films. Names like Amitabh Bachan, 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. Nollywood 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."

Namaste Wahala - Releasing on Feb 14 on Netflix

In what is an unusual concept, Netflix's Valentine's Day release is going to be a love story of an Indian guy and a Nigerian woman. The movie brings forth the differences as well as the colorful similarities between Nigerian and Indian culture. Starring Ini Dima-Okojie and Ruslaan Mumtaz, it is a story of two people who fight to be together even though everything doesn't seem to be going their way. Namaste Wahala is going to be filled with all the elements of a quintessential rom-com, including drama of course. Namaste Wahala is directed and produced by debutante Hamisha Daryani Ahuja, who also stars in the film.
