The romantic drama features popular movie stars from both countries including Joke Silva, Richard Mofe Damijo, Segal Sujata, Ini-Dima Okojie, Ruslaan Mumtaz among others. The sound track is produced by M.I. Abaga and DJ Suketu.
Speaking about the project, Hamisha Daryani Ahuja shared:
“I am very excited about my movie Namaste Wahala going to the whole world through Netflix. The movie showcases the beauty of Nigeria and the wealth of talent in Nollywood. It was amazing to see how beautifully two cultures which I hold very close to my heart came together in this fusion movie. I can’t wait for all of you to watch it”.
Namaste Wahala was set to release in cinemas in April, 2020, but got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It will now premiere as a Netflix Original on Valentine’s Day.
