Veteran actor, Fred Amugi, has pointed out some of the discriminations in the movie industry.

During an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Mr Amugi disclosed how he was badly treated some time ago.

He claimed he was rejected for movie roles because of his age.

“I was once rejected because people thought I was too old. But they forgot that a family needs both children and older people to be complete. What we see on TV and in movies shows us how people live together. And in every community, people of all ages work together. So, I’m still active, still acting and still doing well,” the 75-year-old actor disclosed.

However, this won’t push him to retire. He also opened up about the projects he was working on.

 “I’m still active in acting and have two new films coming out. I’ve just finished one called The Fisherman, which is a foreign style film made in Ghana. I’m still working on the second one, Yen Ara, extensively Yen Ara Asaase Ni. So expect great things!”

On how actors can improve themselves, Fred Amugi stated:

“When it comes to acting, I think the most important qualities are humility and discipline. These traits come from experiencing different aspects of life. We can learn from what happens around us and what brings good and bad things.

“By seeing how others have lived, we can learn to be humble and disciplined. Those who are, tend to have the best lives. Humility and discipline are key.”
