Notable Nigerian actors have converged in Abuja for the film “Zero Hour”.
Zero Hour parades an all star cast including, RMD, Eucharia Anunobi, Ene Oloja, of the famous “Cock Crow at Dawn’’, Ali Nuhu, Alex Ekubo, Kannywood diva, Rahama Sadau, Ayoola and others.
Some of the actors, who spoke to newsmen on Wednesday, described their roles in the movie with a blend of Nollywood and Kannywood as challenging. They however added that they were capable of delivering excellent work. RMD said he was playing the role of Alhaji Danlami, who is a two-faced individual.
“This guy is a pretentious bastard; that is the only way I can describe him. He is two-faced and you have to do more to know who he is. “The character is from the north, but this is not my first time acting a character from the north in a movie. “However, I expect more collaboration and films from the industry that will break the large scene,’’ he said.
Also, Sadau who played the character of Zainab in the movie said her role was that of a simple and amazing girl.
“Zainab is stuck between taking revenge over the death of her uncle. “There a lot more about Zainab in this movie which we are hoping that the audience will welcome and be amazed with everything we put together,’’ Sadau said.’’ She also said that the role she was playing in the movie was different from the ones she did in previous movies. “In this role, there is a lot of running and challenging scenes; it is good for me because it is something new and I appreciate it. “However, I feel very proud that people from the south are coming to the north to shoot and act in movie; we hope for more of such,’’ she said.
Also, Halima Yusuf, who plays the role of General Manger of Galaxy Company, said that this was her first movie. “I got into it through an online audition for the production of the movie “Zero Hour. I am happy and feel I will go places with my act.’’ Oloja who also featured in “Behind the Cloud’’, decades ago said her role in Zero Hour was Hauwa, mother to Zamani
