Malaysian Prince to Do Movie of Manohara Story
Manohara Odelia Pinot’s estranged Malaysian prince-husband, Tengku Fakhry, said he was ready to air his own version of their love story.
Unlike Manohara’s soap opera on local television, Fakhry will tell his side of the story in a movie, news portal detik.com reported on Thursday.
“Kisah Prahara Cinta Pangeran,” or “The Stormy Love Story of the Prince,” will be filmed in Malaysia by director Kardi Syaid. It will reportedly offer a different version of the love affair, one that claims the marriage ended with a falling-out because of a person outside the relationship.
Kardi was quoted as saying he felt the public should know the truth. “There is an imbalance of information surrounding this case circulated in the public and the media,” he said.
The director said he hoped audiences would see things from the point of view of the Kelantan Palace, and how Fakhry and Manohara’s relationship was fine until it was destroyed by a third party, reportedly Manohara’s mother, who would be depicted as the antagonist of the film.
Kardi said Fakhry had not pledged financial support, but had arranged for the Kelantan Palace to be used as a film set.
