Movie Director Leila Djansi has stated that there is absolutely no bad blood whatsoever between herself and her fellow award-winning filmmaker, Shirley Frimpong-Manso.
The two ladies are reputed as the best movie directors in the country and the competitive nature of the industry they find themselves has fueled speculations that they have some rivalry that has degenerated into enmity.
Indeed, though they are in the same industry they have never been spotted together until they were announced as co-winners for the Best Director Award category at the recent Ghana Movie Awards.
Both directors had to mount the stage to receive the award which was presented by renowned actress Akorfa Ejiene Asiedu.
Shirley, in receiving the award, announced she was privileged to be on stage with Leila while the ï¿½Northern Affairï¿½ director also congratulated Shirley.
Media reports after the show described their gesture as a ï¿½melodrama reconciliationï¿½ to bury the hatchet.
Leila, however, told NEWS-ONE that she had no issues with Shirley. She said they were not enemies and as such the issue about reconciliation was neither here nor there.
ï¿½We are not enemies. I donï¿½t really understand why somebody will say that we are,ï¿½ she added.
Leila has to her credit some very good films including the recently produced ï¿½Northern Affairï¿½, ï¿½Sinking Sandsï¿½ and ï¿½Ties That Bindï¿½.
Shirley also recently premiered her latest film, ï¿½Potomantoï¿½. Some of her previous award-winning movies include ï¿½A Sting In A Taleï¿½, ï¿½Life and Living Itï¿½, ï¿½6 Hours To Christmasï¿½, ï¿½Adams Appleï¿½ and ï¿½Checkmateï¿½.
