KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

In order to retain most of the visuals and overall vibe of the original film, the production team of ‘Kings of Mulberry Street: Let Love Reign’ decided to stick with the South African province of KwaZulu Natal to lens all the pivotal sequences for the sequel. In particular, the city of Durban in the KwaZulu Natal province served as the primary production location for the comedy-drama film. With so many riots and floods occurring in the city over the past few years, it was much needed for the locals to feel good about the province, especially after all the city of Durban has been going through recently.

What adds more authenticity to the narrative is the fact that Durban is known to have a high crime rate, be it murder, theft, and heist. This ties in perfectly with the theme of abduction explored in the movie. Over the years, KwaZulu Natal has served as a prominent filming site for numerous film and TV projects. Some of the notable ones are ‘Spud,’ ‘Jungle Beat: The Movie,’ ‘Mad Buddies,’ ‘Kandasamys: The Wedding,’ ‘Going Bananas,’ and ‘Jiva.’
