Hakim prepares for European tour
Egyptian folk-singer Hakim has signed a contract to hold a tour around Europe in May taking him to Italy, France, Germany and Switzerland. The singer had stressed that he must complete the filming of four new songs first for his upcoming film “Ali Spicy”, which will mark his first leading role in the cinema.
The first scenes of the new film “Ali Spicy” also starring Egyptian actress Summaya Al Khashab are finally being filmed at Studio Egypt. The film will mark Hakim’s first leading role in the cinema, an experience the singer stresses is not thought of a mere urge for a singer to act, but rather a passion he has been preparing for in the past five years.
IHakim revealed that in the past years he has been going through many different film ideas but finally decided on “Ali Spicy”, in which he plays the role of careless medical student whose passion is to become a singer and heal people with his music.
In the film, Hakim performs five different songs, two of which are sung as a duet with Summaya, who had also sung duets with Egyptian singer Mustafa Amar in his film “Bahibak Wi Ana Kaman”. Summaya has expressed her happiness at returning to the cinema, after an absence that lasted for over a year and a half. She added that the film holds humanistic meaning and is a romance musical combined with comedy.
