Hakim spiced up for the cinema
Egyptian pop-singer Hakim has just completed recording four new songs that are to be included in his upcoming film “Ali Spicy”, which marks his debut into the acting world. Hakim revealed that shooting of the first scenes will begin directly after the Muslim Eid El Fitr holiday, and in the meantime the entire cast along with director Mohammad Al Najar are scheduled to hold extensive work sessions to finalize the details of the script.
Hakim stressed that this film will mark his debut in the acting world, and that he does not consider his previous acting experience in the film “Al Hanoon Wal Tabal” as one worth mentioning. In the film “Ali Spicy”, the singer performs the character of Ali Abu Al-Ila who is a student in medicine school but he leaves his studies to be a singer despite his father's refusal.
Regarding his latest work, Hakim said that he is working on his latest video clip for his song “Ihdarouna Ya Aalam”. Hakim added that he enhanced the Arabic song and made it reach world ears by singing duets with famous world singers like James Brown and Steve Wonder. The singer added that even though he is trying to add a western touch to his songs he criticized video clips and said that he does not like the new video clips where girls show up with seductive dresses and even with belly dancing outfits, he also added that this is against our Arab traditions.
Hakim has presented Egyptian actor Nour El Sherif with the opening and ending songs for his Ramadan television drama “Eish Ayamak Eish Layaleek” (Live Your Days and Nights). Hakim revealed that the songs are a special gift to the actor and that he will not accept any financial reimbursement for them. The singer added that he considers Nour to be one of his favorite actors and added that the wage given for these songs is nothing compared to that he receives during his concerts. –Albawaba.com
