Latifa heads for a second movie experience
Tunisian singer Latifa is currently working on her a new film, which she prefers not to reveal any of the details until a later date. The film will mark Latifa's second cinematic experience, the first being two years ago in the film "Sukoot Han Sawar" (Quiet, We Will Shoot) by Egyptian director Yousif Shaheen, reported the UAE based daily, Al Bayan.
After a separation that lasted over four years, Tunisian singer Latifa returned to her former love a businessman, whom she is currently living a romantic love story with. Latifa had previously left her to be fiancé four years ago for reasons she wished not to reveal.
Early last month, Latifa added two of Ziad Rahbani’s songs to her upcoming album. Rahbani created the two songs at his private studio in the Hamra district in Lebanon especially for Latifa. This is not the first time that Latifa attributes a Lebanese composer for her songs as she is accustomed to working with Lebanese composers and producers.
Latifa’s collection for her new album will also include two songs composed and distributed by Lebanese Jan Mary Riashi. The singer has expressed that she feels it’s a great honor to work with Rahbani as it adds tremendously to her career.
The album is to hold many surprises for all of Latifa's fans, with a Khaliji song written by Prince Badr Bin Abdul Muhsin. The song, entitled "La Ana Ansa" (I Won't Forget), will mark Latifa's debut with a Khaliji song. The song's composer, Mohammed Shafiq said that "the work came upon Latifa's wish to have a joint project with Prince Badr, and for his part the Prince welcomed the idea and worked on 'La Ana Ansa' poem." – Albawaba.com
