South African comedian Chris Forrest is expected to star in Judy Naidoo’s latest film "Kings of Mulberry Street", which is expected to hit cinemas on June 28.
The film tells the story of two nine-year-old boys feisty Ticky (Aaqil Hoosen) and his sidekick the more timid Baboo (Shaan Nathoo), who set out to rid their community of local bully and crime boss, Raja.
The film is set in the 80s, in the fictional town of Sugarhill District in KwaZulu-Natal.
Forrest plays the role of Mr White, the born and bred Durban beach bum who is a colourful local and a hustler and knows all the players in the crime underworld.
“Mr White acts as the go-between for the unscrupulous Raja and a major drug syndicate,” said Naidoo.
