Kagiso Modupe and his daughter, Tshimolo Modupe.
Kagiso Modupe has premiered his debut film which features the crop of the cream of film and television industry. 

Ster-Kinekor cinema in Cresta Mall was packed to the brim on Thursday night as Kagiso Modupe premiered his locally-produced film, Losing Lerato

Losing Lerato is a film based on a father who loses it all, including his daughter, Lerato. 

In the film, Thami (Kagiso Modupe), who plays Lerato’s father, tries by all means to have access to his daughter but because he’s poor, Lerato’s mom prohibits him from seeing his daughter. He ends up doing something stupid just to get access to Lerato - that lands him in jail. 

At the premiere, actors and actresses came out to support Modupe on his first film, and this is what our local stars looked like on the red carpet.
