Nse received critical acclaim for her role in the 2012 film, ‘Mr and Mrs’, with Rita set to take the lead female role in the sequel
As news trickled in that Nollywood filmmaker, Chinwe Egwuagu
had perfected works on the sequel of Mr. and Mrs.
, there have been doubts from different quarters on whether the film will surpass the success of the first one.
But she was quick to clear this while reiterating that the film, titled Mr. and Mrs. Revolution
will surpass, in all standards, any form of success that the first instalment commanded.
Reacting to the skepticism expressed in some quarters on whether the movie will be able to match the goodwill the first one enjoyed, Chinwe Egwuagu said, ‘When we did Mr and Mrs in 2011, we did not know it would command so much goodwill and commercial success but it surpassed everyone’s expectations.
‘What we did was to pay attention to our own part and ensure that we deliver quality and lovable movie. We did that and the result speaks for itself.
‘This is the same thing we have done for the Chapter two which is why we are confident that Mr and Mrs Chapter Two will surpass the success of the first one. It is not boasting. I only know that we have done our part and the other part rest with viewers whom I believe will love it,’
