Award winning Nollywood actor and director Antar Laniyan has openly come out to reveal what he does to any actress who has the courage to wink at him at locations.
According to Punch, the movie star addressed the allegation about actors who engage in immoral acts while on set. Laniyan disclosed that despite being in the movie industry for many years he is highly disciplined.
The actor further disclosed that he slaps any of his female colleagues who wink at him while on set. He added that any actor who puts romance first before his career would not go far.
“If you are disciplined and you don’t put romance with women first as an actor, you would go far. If you believe that as an actor, you don’t need women all around you, then you would remain relevant because you would concentrate on your craft. I directed ‘SuperStory’ for about 10 years but no woman entered my room in the camp. You can ask Wale Adenuga himself. There were amorous advances from women but I shunned them. I am feared while on set. As a lady you cannot see me and have the courage to approach me with your amorous advances. People would even tell you not to try it with me, they would advise the ladies not to wink at me because I would just slap them.”
He further explained that not that he is being wicked but believes that he does not need to see any part of their body before he knows how talented they are. Laniyan added that he wishes to be an evergreen actor like his colleagues Adebayo Salami (Oga Bello) and Prince Jide Kosoko.
“You don’t have to bribe me with your body. When I am working, I let discipline guide me. I don’t care if you are befriending the producer; but as a director, I want a disciplined actor in front of me. I do not go to the location to wine and dine; instead I go to work. When it comes to working, I am like a man that goes to the war front with the mindset of winning the war. If I don’t face my work squarely, it is the same people that are commending me that would condemn me and I don’t want that. I want to be an evergreen actor. Look at the likes of Oga Bello and Prince Jide Kosoko, they started in 1964 and they are still relevant today. At the time they started, I was just a year old.”
