The release of the remastered version of Sarafina in cinema has provoked fond memories from Leleti Khumalo, one of the actresses who was part of the cast. Sarafina was a big win when it was released years ago. And although several years have passed, many still talk about the flick with excitement.
Leleti Khumalo is one of them. At the time she was cast for a role in the flick, she was way younger. There were, of course, older colleagues on the set of the flick at the time, including Marian Makeba, Whoopi Goldberg and John Kani.
Recalling those halcyon days, she singled out Whoopi Goldberg for her humility, noting how she would not want to be placed on a high horse despite being an older colleague. She related with everyone respectfully as colleagues. She also had words of praise for John Kani and Mirain Makeba, noting how they treated her and other younger acts well and guided them.
The remastered version of the Sarafina movie debuted across cinemas on Sunday to the delight of those who have always wanted to see its resurrection three decades after its initial release. Well, now they have what they have always wanted. Life.
