Each passing day an industry player tries to factor what has caused the low patronage of films in the country and actress, Jasmine Baroudi, has laid the blame at the doorstep of unqualified actors.
Speaking to Showbiz in an interview, she said:“I recommend that movie producers only put qualified or professional actors on the screen. There are too many unprofessional actors who are virtually doing nothing but call themselves actors making the work so difficult for some of us”
The thespian stated without fear that these so-called actors have made their craft look cheap when it is not.
“Now, anyone at all is just shooting movies and parading girls who will do anything to come on the screen. No wonder we have so many slay queens who call themselves actors but do something else,” she said
Jasmine continued:“To some of us who do nothing apart from acting, the low patronage of movies is a big deal for us. We are just there waiting to be called by producers. It is sad where we have gotten to” she said
Aside unqualified actors, Jasmine also said producers are not coming out with compelling stories, making our movies boring.
“Our movies are now very boring and that is because producers are telling one way stories. Our storylines are the same and no one is interested in watching the same old boring movies again.
She added “It is about time producers sat down and did their homework. There are so many stories we can tell in Ghana and I wonder why our producers are not touching on them,”
