Hakim looking for potential young actors
Egyptian singer Hakim has decided to rename his upcoming film “Hassan Safari” to “Al Shater Hassan” (The Good Hassan). The singer also postponed the filming of the scenes, which were to take place in the upcoming two weeks, to a later undecided date.
According to the UAE based daily, Al Bayan, Hakim’s postponement came due to the fact that he is currently looking for young potential actors to costar with him in the film. Hakim added that he also feels that more time there is to prepare for the film, the better the outcome will be.
Late last month, a Cairo civil affairs court sentenced Egyptian singer Hakim and his first wife, lawyer Marwa Shahine to a one week prison term with bail at the hearing over their divorce. Hakim's wife filed for divorce in November, following her husband's act of betrayal with his so-called second wife.
At the hearing, Hakim sent a request through his lawyer to solve the matter civilly and asked for reconciliation with his wife. Marwa refused all attempts by Hakim saying that what has been broken can never be fixed. She added that she intends to make Hakim pay every penny of alimony she is entitled to including the child support payments he abandoned throughout the time of their separation.
Marwa expressed resentment to her husband's 'unbearable' acts, which started a year ago with his frequent absence from home. "He used to leave us behind with no money, he showed no attention or care to me or his two kids," explained Marwa.
Hakim had assaulted his wife in a furnished apartment at the upscale neighborhood of Azzamalek, as she walked in on him and his secretary whilst 'in the act', which he later claimed to be his second wife
Following the incident, witnesses confirmed that the singer went on to beat his wife, Marwa, in front of the neighbors after a squabble broke out between the two.
Marwa told the newspaper that she insists on the divorce even if Hakim apologizes in all magazines and newspapers, "my decision is final and I'm not going to give up any of my legal rights, which might amount to one million pounds in financial compensation," said Marwa. – Albawaba.com
