'Karim' will star in Amal Maher's music video
If you are an Arabic singer and want to a make a winning music video to promote your latest single, try recruiting Turkish actors for the shooting. Amal Maher has done, and it's probably not a bad idea at all to appeal to her music fans.
Amal Maher's people have thought along these marketing strategy lines, aware of the buzz that certain male Turkish actors are having just now. The producing company for the latest album for Egyptian actress Amal Maher is holding secret, under the table, negotiations to nab big flavor of the season Turkish actor Engin Akyurek, known to the Arab world as Karim from the hit Turkish drama ‘Fatima’. They want him to star in Amal’s latest music video for the single “Ataqi Rabna Fia” (For the Love of God Have Mercy on Me), to be shot shortly.
Amal has recently filmed two music videos - one for the song “Fiq Hitat Ghuror” (You Are Conceited) and the other for “Khalini Maak” (Keep Me With You). The latter was formally scheduled to be released on Valentine’s Day but was postponed due to the unstable conditions in Egypt.
Engin himself was to visit Egypt to take part of a celebration held by a Turkish company in Cairo, but had to turn down his invitation due to being diverted with other projects.
