Jennifer Hudson reportedly told someone that she was playing the lead role in the upcoming movie “Winnie” based on the life story of Nelson Mandela’s Ex-wife Winnie Madikizela Mandela and Terrence Howard as Nelson Mandela. She also said that according to her the story has to be known by one and all.
She was threatened by Winnie Madikizela Mandela’s lawyers about her acceptance of the film scripts by her which is upsetting her. The director of the movie Darrell Roodt said that the filming is going to begin in South Africa on the 31st of May and told deadline.com that the movie is about Winnie Mandela and is not for Winnie Mandela.
Kate Hudson has said to her friends that it is a fair thing to make this movie as she is getting a chance to portray the Winnie Mandel’s character which portrays her character and it also contains all her wrong doings. She also relates herself to Winnie Mandela as she too had to go through a lot lately and overcome things and said that she just can’t wait for the filming to start.
A jest of the story is that it is because Winnie Mandela fought against apartheid in South Africa that she became famous where she was the leader of the African National Congress and started campaigns for the release of Nelson Mandela. After nelson Mandela was released their marriage came to an end and she was convicted for kidnapping.
