Lu Fikirlah Sendiri de situation.

Isn't it nice that the forces of commercialism deem it timely for a movie to be made about the life of flavor-of-the-month comedian Nabil?
The movie is entitled Lu Fikirlah Sendiri de Movie. Nice title.
I'm particularly not much of a fan of Nabil. He is obviously a much appreciated comedian and he also looks like a talented writer too - having to write most of his material.
And because he is 'hot' it would be commercially viable to make a movie about him or with him. Doesn't matter. It's a calculated risk but a good one. I believe, if the movie is even half decent, it will be a commercial hit.
But isn't it a little sad that producers' deem Nabil's life story the only one fit to be made into a biopic?
Wouldn't the life stories of other celebrities also be of much interest to viewers? There's P. Ramlee. There's Saloma.
Wait, let me list some of the celebrities or personalities that I think movies should be made about: Jamal Abdillah, Sudirman Haji Arshad, Zaiton Sameon, Saadiah, Tompel.
Do you have any suggestions?
What about important historical figures? Mat Kilau? Dato Bahaman? Burhanuddin Helmi? Sybil Karthigesu? Botak Chin? Tok Janggut? Tun Ismail? Lat?
So many important and interesting personalities, yet, our producers could only find Nabil's life story as the one to be filmed.
Wonder what FINAS's take on this would be.
I guess they are too busy trying to complete the delayed RM30plus million sound studio. From what I heard yesterday, the sound studio is now expected to be completed and launched in December this year. We shall see.
By the way, someone told me Shah Rukh Khan, oops excuse me, Datuk Shah Rukh Khan, will not be the new Chairman of FINAS. The post has gone to an MP from Muar.
