Assi Hilani heads to television and the cinema
Lebanese singer Assi Hilani’s recent music videos have earned him the reputation as a talented actor. The singer is receiving numerous offers from Arab producers and directors for leading roles in different films and television series.
According to the London based daily, Dar Al Hayat, Assi described the offers as ‘tempting’ and he may give his approval to a few of them in the near future.
One of the most intriguing offers Assi may accept is from an Egyptian production company for a film alongside a young Egyptian female counterpart, whose name was not revealed. Assi also received an offer from the Arab satellite television network MBC to star in a historical television drama.
Assi recently appeared as a guest on the weekly program “Alyoum Al Sabie” (The Seventh Day) aired on MBC and hosted by Mahmoud Saed. During the show Assi announced that he will reach an agreement to play the role of an Arab knight in the new television drama.
The drama will be filmed by a Syrian director on location in Syria and Lebanon.
Assi will not perform any songs in the drama.
Assi was in the UAE to promote his latest album “Dakat Albi” (My Heartbeats), released two months ago and the first under his new production company ‘Rotana.’
The new album features fourteen romantic songs along with a new music video for the song “Sa’alo Anni” (They Asked about Me) under the direction of Saeed Al Marouq.
