Tawake's dream

Avinesh Gopal
Saturday, June 07, 2014

HE has been watching Hindi movies since he was young and as he grew older, he wanted to act in one.

It was not until 2006 when his dreams came true in the movie Adhura Sapna, which when translated means an incomplete dream.

Being a keen reader of The Fiji Times, Rakuita Tawake also checks the classifieds section of this newspaper daily for acting jobs.

During his search in 2006, he came across an advertisement saying that a former Fiji resident living in Australia, Vimal Reddy was looking for local actors for his first movie.

Since then, there has been no looking back for the Vanua Levu man who is a sugarcane farmer at Uciwai in Nadi.

Tawake said his acting career started with Reddy's first movie Adhura Sapna and he played a minor role in the second movie Ghar Pardes.

However, in Reddy's latest movie Highway to Suva, which started screening in Suva and Lautoka yesterday, Tawake plays the role of an undercover police officer.

"I'm not a professional Bollywood actor but acting in the three movies directed by Vimal has been a great learning experience for me," he said.
