Nollywood actress Fathia Balogun has hinted that she does not like kissing in movies.
The single-mother of three dropped this hint in an interview she granted The Nation when she was asked if she would reject role owing to its obscenity.
She said, “I won’t turn it down. I will just have a meeting with the producer, maybe the production manager or the wardrobe manager, that do you know I can dress like this and still get out this character. And most of the time, they agree.
“There’s no role I cannot play. I can count the number of scenes I’ve kissed before. Like my movie that I’m telling you now, there is a scene where I kissed. That is the first movie ever that I would kiss a guy in the movie industry. But doing that, the script said you should do that.”
The 48-year-old, who hails from Warri in Delta State expressed her dislike for assertion that actors in Yoruba genre of movies don’t belong to Nollywood.
She told the paper, “I don’t think there is anything like Yoruba actors or Yoruba actress. I feel Nollywood is Nollywood. because I’m a Yoruba speaking actor does not mean I’m not Nollywood… I feel Nollywood is Nollywood. because I’m a Yoruba speaking actor does not mean I’m not Nollywood.
“We don’t have the whole of America in Hollywood. We have other countries there. So, why didn’t they say, ‘because you’re not American, you’re not Hollywood.’.. But some people would feel, ‘you do Yoruba movies,’ so? So, because I do Yoruba movies, I should go and die?”
