Khanyi Mbau has taken her acting career up to another level. She is set to star in a film this year. She shared the trailer of the thriller called Red Room. Khanyi plays the role of an expecting mother called Zama Marawa. Zama is married to a very successful and wealthy business man. When Zama’s husband dies, she discovers her husband has nothing to his name. She finds herself homeless. Her whole world is completely shaken and she must figure out a way to survive. The film heavily focuses on abuse and human trafficking.
In an interview with Channel24, Khanyi stated: “This is quite dark, it’s about sexual abuse, it’s about physical abuse, and it’s a dark film. I mean, probably just the first 15 minutes of the film are the lightest part, the happiest part, then throughout the film it’s just journey of survival.”
“It’s scary to go to those places but it is what is necessary to portray this character. I’ll probably need therapy after this,” she added.
According to Khanyi, the film is set to be released in March, 2019.
