A LOCALLY-produced movie will be released in the country after six weeks.

The movie Highway to Suva has been produced and directed by Vimal Reddy, a former Fiji resident living in Melbourne, Australia.

Mr Reddy directed Adhura Sapna in 2007 and Ghar Pardes in 2009, which were also shot in Fiji and partly in Australia.

He told The Fiji Times from Melbourne on Tuesday that Highway to Suva would be released at Event Cinemas Damodar City on June 5.

The movie has New Zealand-based Bollywood actor Rishi Deepak in the lead male role. He acted in the recently released movie Urban Turban.

Lautoka lass Tarishma Gounder, who was in the top 10 of the Miss Fiji pageant in 2012, makes her debut as an actress in the movie.

Mr Reddy said Highway to Suva also stars Ratu Rakuita Tawake, who has also acted in the other two movies made by him.

Vijay Kumaran, the star of Ghar Pardes, also sings two songs in the movie alongside famous Bollywood singer Javed Ali.

A highly-acclaimed cinematographer from the South Indian film industry, Sabu James, is also a part of the production team.

He has trained and taught at the Pune Film Institute of India.

Ali has sung one song while Mr Kumaran, a Fijian, sang two songs including the title song which has become popular in Fiji.
