Afro jazz music sensation Pah Chihera real name Pamhidzai Tracy Mbirimi is set to join a lo-cal star studded cast in her debut appearance in the much anticipated movie Gehena Harina Moto.
The movie set to be premiered by early April was written by Johannes Mike Mapisa and is being directed and produced by Zimbabwean Warrior writer and directors Donovan Takaendesa and Millard Katuri.
The 'Runonzi Rudo' hitmaker will play the youngest wife in a polygamous marriage.
She will have her work cut out for her, going head to head with local celebrated TV veteran actor and actress Patience Musa, currently playing the lead on Maoko Matema, and Courage Murambadare, who is currently starring in Chikwambo.
Chihera said this film was her way of diversifying and fully exploring her artistic nature.
''This is my first act and I have decided to diversify into film and acting as a way of tapping into my artist nature, being an artist is a broad word and acting is another part of being an art-ist and I want to break into it,
''My character in this film is that of a third and young wife in a polygamous marriage with a total of three wives loved by the husband and of cause hated by the other wives. It will be an opportunity for my fans to see another side of Pah Chihera off stage in terms of music but speaking a story in a different way,
''It will be a pleasure to work with my other fellow artists because these are people I have so much love and respect for. I actually look up to Patience as my big sister and I admire her tal-ent, said Chihera.
The plot of the film brings to light the social challenges associated with polygamous marriages as depicted through the chaotic family of Nyevere played by F.Shumba. Takaendesa said the film will be a trail blazer as their cast was on point and his production team was going all out to ensure fans are not disappointed.local
