There really is no stopping radio and TV personality Redi Tlhabi. Her book, Endings & Beginnings, is being made into a movie.

There really is no stopping radio and TV personality Redi Tlhabi. Her book, Endings & Beginnings, is being made into a movie. “I am elated and nervous at the same time. I did not realise that writing and publishing this book would take me on this exciting journey,” the new mom told us.

Redi, who gave birth to her first child little over a month ago, says she was determined not to be involved in the film-making process. But co-producers Antony Altbeker and Ben Horowitz had different ideas.

“They are determined to have me play some consultative role. I am now basically in their hands,” Redi told YOU. Although that doesn’t mean she’ll be giving actors any advice. “I think it is a privilege to have award-winning director Oliver Hermanus on board and he will expertly translate the book to film because how events happened may not necessarily translate well on film. But he will know how to manage that without diluting the authenticity of the story. “

We can’t wait to see it!
