- Actor Kagiso Modupe is very excited about his film, Losing Lerato, and he has reason to be - it's a hit
- The film was dominant in its opening weekend and received a very warm reception
- Kagiso was happy to get to act alongside his daughter and described the experience as 'amazing'
Kagiso Modupe's new movie, Losing Lerato, received a great welcome and dominated the box office during its opening weekend.
The actor is overjoyed that Mzansi liked it so much and compared the feeling to that of finally asking out the girl you like and getting a 'yes'.
"Let me be honest with you, it just feels like when you ask the girl you liked in high school and she said yes, just as you turn the corner you're like 'yes', well, it feels like that. I'm very excited and over the moon."
TimesLIVE reports that Kagiso came up with the story of Losing Lerato when he was thinking about his father's search for his granddad.
"Growing up I always knew my dad was searching for his dad. Seeing him eventually find him and witnessing him weep on his grave moved me. We found out that my grandfather knew where my dad and his brothers were but didn't look for them. Hence I came up with the concept of a father's love for his child and how he was willing to do anything to keep his child."
Losing Lerato is described as a beautiful story of how a young man has to take matters into his own hands after her mother separated them.
For Kagiso, acting beside his daughter was an amazing experience.
"Acting in the movie alongside my daughter was amazing. I just realised how big she has gotten and she really played the role very well."
Although the film has been a huge success so far, many Botswana fans are sad that they won't get to see the film yet.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the film won't be aired there due to red tape.
