Star actor, Uti Nwachukwu, has disclosed that he enjoyed every moment he spent on locations where the soon-to-be released movie, Breathless, was shot.
The ex-Big Brother Africa winner and Jara co-anchor said he chose to feature in the movie because of its remarkable storyline and the brains behind it.
The movie, which has the potential of a blockbuster, has already earned nominations at two prestigious African movie awards. Breathless, through Mike Ezuruonye’s role, got a nomination for Best Actor Drama (TV/Series) at the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA), while Nwachukwu, was nominated for the Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.
“I like to keep a reputation that when people see me in a movie, they will just have an instant feeling that it’s worth it.
“So I am very selective to give my fans the best.
” From the first day I saw the script, I fell in love with it.
“I love scripts that are not conventional; Breathless is in that class,” he said.
Breathless, which also stars Bimbo Manuel, Mike Ezuruonye, Brycee Bassey, Bobby Michaels and John Njamah, tells a story of the murder of an asthmatic lady in the beach house of her boss.
The incident sets off a series of events, which blows the lid off dark and well hidden secrets of the Okpodus and their link to the murder victim.
The movie climaxes when it exposes the messy secrets.
