Dr. Mahathir to act in "Kapsul"

Writer: Dzamira Dzafri


Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

17 Sep – Martias Mohd Ali, who will direct the up and coming patriotic film "Kapsul", also wrote the script of this film and seeks the cooperation of the respected leader of the country, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to the international stage. The idea is still under discussion between himself and Two Tones Sdn Bhd.

"We're still working on this and we hope that he can star in this film. We want to portray the vision of the year 2020 (Wawasan 2020)," said the director.

The movie is expected to start filming in early December this year, and has been scheduled to open on January 1, 2020.

"The plot revolves around a young man called Zohri who travels back in to the year 1942 and helps defend the country from the Japanese soldiers, feeling the suffering of the Malays before independence," he said.


Actor Faizal Hussein is set to star in "Kapsul".

"Zohri was hired by a man, supposedly a 'Datuk' to steal the Wawason 2020 capsule before he went missing. The film is inspired from the idea by Mahathir about Wawasan 2020. Perhaps many of us have already forgotten about the mission of this country," said Martias.

He also stated that actor Faizal Hussein has been confirmed as the main character starring in this film. Also confirmed to be in the film are Shaharuddin Thamby and a special appearance by Internet millionaire, Irfan Khairi.

A total of 10 popular artists and 30 supporting actors are also involved in the making of the film.
