Bright future

A FIJIAN actor believes the movie industry in Fiji has a very bright and promising future.

"It's heartening to see the overwhelming response from our Fijian friends and the way they are embracing Fiji movies," said Vijay Kumaran who is originally of Lautoka.

Kumaran plays the role of an undercover police officer in the movie Highway to Suva, which is directed by Vimal Reddy, a former Fiji resident living in Australia.

Highway to Suva is the third movie Reddy has made and it will be released in Suva on June 5.

Kumaran said some talented artists from Fiji were also getting an opportunity to showcase their talent which is very encouraging.

"If this talent is nurtured and honed, then we may have more promising artists eager to showcase their talent in future," he said.

"I have worked with Mr Reddy for more than five years. I initially worked with him on Ghar Pardes followed by Highway to Suva.

"Mr Reddy was moulding the concept of Highway to Suva whilst working on Ghar Pardes. When he narrated the concept to me, I was so amazed by it and had an instant desire to be part of the project.

"I was also very fortunate to be given the fantastic opportunity to be a playback singer for a couple of songs in Highway to Suva, including the title song."
