Ali Nuhu is one of the few Kannywood actors that has successfully managing to act both in Nollywood and Kannywood movies.
In an interview with Weekend Mag, the actor explained that there will be many more actors like him crossing over from Kannywood as the barrier between Kannywood and Nollywood will soon be completely removed.
He said, “The lines are still there, but seem to be invisible because the criteria for some of the distribution houses to accept your movie is that you have a national actor, international actor, a regional or some regional actors. Regional actors are those that usually act in movies that are produced within a region and hardly cross over to another region.
“But sometimes you need some faces because they are popular on the graph sheet in the region. That jinx needs to be broken. For instance, I have up to four cinema type movie scripts that have been submitted to me in the last three months. All are going to be shot in Lagos because they need an actor that is prominent in the Northern region and I am sure it is the same for some of my colleagues too. Very soon that line will be invisible.”
