After wrapping up the shooting of his part in the series Al Barr Al Gharbi (Western Land), Egyptian actor Farouq Al Fishawi is gearing up to shoot his latest film Aqdar (Destinies) on the heels of a two-year sabbatical. Costarring in the film along with Fishawi are Sawsan Bader and Mohammed Riyad, according to the Arabic daily Al Sharq Al Awsat.
Fishawi plays the role of a husband whose wife dies, leaving him responsible for raising his small kids and solving their problems.
The latest film in which Fishawi appeared was Souq Al Muta’a (Pleasure Market), in which he starred along with Elham Shahin and Mahmoud Abdel Aziz.
