Fans express concern for Bukola Arugba amidst marital challenges with Damola Olatunji
Bukula Arugba, a Nollywood actress, has left her fans concerned as she speaks on the hurtful part of her being an actress.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Damola Olatunji’s estranged wife revealed that one of the most painful aspects of being an actor is the inability of people to distinguish between reality and scripted life.
When people see her doing the same thing she does in movies and question her, she responds by asking if her life is a movie.
Bukola stated that she is a human being who laughs, smiles, loves, hurts, and cries. She has a personal life, just like everyone else.
The mother of twins mentioned how her empathy for other people’s suffering drives her to create films about it, but people dismiss her suffering and label it as acting.
She added that life is more challenging for an interpreter of real-life events because when true-life events happen to them, people see it as a movie.
“One of the most painful parts of being an Actor is when your real-life tears are interpreted as Acting. When you are told; “I see you do the same thing in movies’. Is my life a movie?
I am human, I laugh, I smile, I love, I hurt, and I cry too just like you too. As you got your private life outside your job, so do I. I feel your real life, and pains and comfort you with my movies. But u disregard mine and tag it “u serious pretense” or “ACTING”. Is my life a movie?
I cry I expect a hug n comfort but I get a “when you are done acting let us know” kind of reaction.
Life is more challenging for an interpreter of real-life events. Cos when true life events happen to you, they see it as a movie.
SPEAKING THE MINDS OF MY FELLOW THESPIANS who are just true, plain, and pure in heart”.
Taking to her comment section, her fans expressed concern for her as they sent prayers and love her way.
