In a brief interview, nollywood star, Nadia Buari details why she has no friends in the movie industry.
What is your secret of getting to the top with the few movies you have done?
I have been playing lead roles which really boost recognition. But I’ve just started; I’m a beginner despite getting this far. What do you do for fun? Watch movies. I like to stay indoors; I’m not an outdoor person.
I don’t have so many friends, not because I am anti-social, for me it’s all about my family. When I am not shooting a movie, I love to be with them.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
I look forward to being one of the biggest director/movie makers, not only in Ghana but everywhere, basically all parts of the world, while still acting in my own movies.
The more I make movies, the more you see me on TV. I am looking forward to pushing out to the forefront of the Ghanaian movie industry. Are you a model too? Not yet; I haven’t had any offer. I used to model when I was thirteen but I gained weight and stopped.
Any misconception you would like to address?
I want people to know that the fact that I don’t mingle with people doesn’t make me anti-social or bitchy. I am different, very down to earth and humble; I get calls saying I am this and that.
For instance while on location, I am not the friendly kind of person that usually sits and chats around with others. I just do my job. After I leave, they say I don’t want to be their friends and that I think I am all that, contrary to that I’m simply down to earth.
How do you see Ghana’s movie industry in the near future?
Before now, people took movie making as a joke. They come on set to play. They weren’t punctual. Now it is all starting to fall in place. They are taking it serious. A lot of people are coming into it.
I think because the movies are getting recognized internationally. I think in the next years to come we will be able to boast of a real Ghallywood.
