Apart from his nomination by the Golkar Party as their candidate for Jakarta governor, South Sumatra Governor Alex Noerdin has been trying his luck in the entertainment industry, starring in a new movie titled The Best Teacher.
The South Sumatra administration’s public relations stated that the governor’s itinerary today included joining the movie’s last shoot at state-run junior high school SMPN 1 Palembang.
This is Alex’s second big-screen role, he previously co-starred in a 2011 film titled Dapunta, Pengejar Angin (Dapunta, the wind chaser) directed by Hanung Bramantyo.
