Ghana’s Second Lady, Samira Bawumia has been at the center of discussions on several social media platforms after pictures of her and some cast of the popular Kumkum Bhagya series surfaced on social media.
Some players in the Ghana Movie industry have lambasted her for promoting Bollywood movies when the Ghana movie industry keeps sinking each day because of low patronage.
But in a latest post by the Second lady of the country she indicated that her meeting with the cast and some players in the Indian movie industry was for a future collaboration between Ghana’s movie industry and Bollywood in order to whip up interest in Ghanaian movies.
She said “Meeting with some key members of the Indian Entertainment Industry, exploring possibilities of collaboration to boost the budding movie Industry in Ghana”.
Currently, one popular TV series that has caught the attention of most Ghanaians is the Kukum Bhagya series which is aired on Adom TV.
The series which has been telecast for over a year has Indian actors and actresses speaking the Akan language which has attracted several people to it.
The Second Lady believes with the level of enthusiasm with which Ghanaians watch and anticipate to watch the series, Ghana’s movie industry could leverage on that to make some gains to help boost the industry to a very high level.
Samira Bawumia was in India for the International Conference on Women Trafficking in Mumbai, India; hosted by the Maharashtra State Commission for Women and the International Justice Mission.
