The Honeymoon stars shine at The Palace of Dreams


On Tuesday, 28 March, Nu Metro Emperors Palace in partnership with Absa hosted the premiere of local film The Honeymoon.


The film’s stars, media, celebrities and guests gathered to celebrate the Bianca Isaac-directed film which stars Kajal Bagwandeen, Tumi Morake and Minnie Dlamini.

The Honeymoon tells the story of three best friends who jet off on an unexpected island holiday after one of them is left jilted by her fiancé the night before her wedding. After talented designer Katya’s months of planning for her big day are crushed, social media influencer Noks, played by Morake, drags and unwilling Kat (Bagwandeen) and married mother-of-two Lu (Dlamini) off to Zanzibar. There the three friends find themselves having fun and raising hell: from quaffing cocktails on white sand beaches to partying until sunrise. Their honeymoon adventure is cut short when the secrets they have hidden and lies they have told themselves and each other are laid bare, leaving their friendship broken.

Starring alongside the movie’s leading ladies are actuary-turned-actor Tasveer Maharaj, who plays the role of Kat’s fiancé Vivaan, seasoned radio and television’s JJ Mathura as Kat’s loving but straight-talking mother, comedian Prev Reddy as Kat’s feisty assistant Frankie and Nay Maps as helicopter dad and Lu’s husband Andile. Stevel Marc, Nina Hastie, Robby Collins and Chris Jaftha also make an appearance in the film.
