'Her loss will be their pain!'
The character of ‘Kali’, her story, has been a part of me for over twelve years. As an actress, a writer, a filmmaker, having your work received in such an amazing way and recognized by your peers, is the most beautiful and amazing compliment . As a woman, that is such a triumph for me especially in the action industry which has been dominated mostly by men for so long. I have always been a fan of action films and I have wanted to tell my stories and share my vision for years. This is the perfect time and I am honored to have such amazing talents coming on board with me to do just that. I am lucky that Sam Puefua has such faith in what I am trying to create. And together, we brought MAMBA to life. Now, I can move onto the full feature with excitement knowing that the world is finally ready for her and will receive her with open arms.
