The action/romance movie was the first to be aired to film lovers at the Durban International Film Festival when it opened on July 17.
“It’s my first lead role in film and that stands as a big deal for me, just to be in a local film is a dream come true. I am a believer of local stories,” he says.
‘Hard to Get’ is a drama and romance filled movie portraying a ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ who fight to stay in love.
Dladla plays a character of a handsome young womaniser who finds real love with a sexy thief (a character played by Thishiwe Ziqubu).
“This movie is an action romance love story that portrays love through action, it teaches one about fighting for love,” he says.
“I play TK a guy who is into more than one woman, the hot guy that can use women and get away with it. But little does he know that he will actually find real love when he falls for a thief, a bad girl,” he says.
With the rise of local films, Dladla says there is a need to build more cinemas in townships.
He believes it will help create more hype over local movies in Mzansi.
“I think we need to make it a big deal, black people don’t go to bioskops. We need more cinemas in townships to build that norm of supporting local productions.”
