Egyptian actress Laila Elwi is getting ready to star in a new drama series “Lailat Al Ro’yah” (Vision Night), written by Muhammad Jalal Abed Al Qawi and directed by Rabab Hussein.
Laila returned to work right after celebrating Valentine’s Day, with her Husband the famous Egyptian businessman Mansour Al Jamal, in Paris.
