Before we get to the interviews, you might be wondering what the movie is all about.

Since the end of their pirate radio station, life has been quiet for the Kurupt FM boys, but everything is about to change.

News reaches them that one of their songs has been used on a popular game show in Japan. They've made it!

Their music is reaching hundreds of thousands of people.

It's finally time for them to enjoy the fame and fortune that they've always known they deserved.

But will it be everything they thought and is Japan ready for Korupt FM?

He went on, "It is a very surreal journey we've all had like we're all mates, we've done this together."

"But at the same time there's a lot of hard work that goes into it and it's all happened very gradually."

"It's not like someone told us, 'Here's five seasons and here's a movie,' it was always a lot of graft, a lot of setbacks... that people don't see."

Sarina pointed out that success is so much better when you're sharing it with your mates, and the lads agreed.

Steve said the whole team behind the scenes and in front of the camera are, "tight."

"It's a great kind of family dynamic. It just makes it all more relaxed."

"I guess for us as performers, the reason we can sort of improvise and do all this extra stuff that works so well is like that we're relaxed enough to do that and to mess around, that's testament to the people around us allowing us to do that."

Sarina chats to Allan Mustafa & Hugo Chegwin

Allan Mustafa and Hugo Chegwin are bringing MC Grindah and DJ Beats to the big screen in People Just Do Nothing: Big in Japan.

Sarina asked Allan if he ever imagined the success he has now, and he admitted, "We never looked that far ahead."

"It wasn't even a thing. I always knew deep down I'd be successful and great at something."

His mate Hugo joked, "Yeah because you've always said that deep down you're literally better than everyone."

"No to be honest, I'm just fortunate enough to have met this group of boys that have dragged me through," Allan continued.

"Kind of kept each other inspired and in check and humble."

Sarina asked Hugo about a standout moment in his career to date.

He hilariously replied, "When I found out that Allan was going to the same university as me, we went outside for a smoke and a bird sh*t on my cap."

"That's when I knew that this is destiny."
