“I placed all my efforts into making this film a success and I am confident it will meet the satisfaction of my fans,” he stated.

Mustafa competed this year with his fifth film “Hareem Kareem,” noting that competing with comedian-actors is a positive factor that motivates him to give his best.
“I do not fear having my film compete among the many films out this summer, for it is the only way I can measure the film’s real success,” Hareem stated.
Singer Tamer Husni, also in the running, is very satisfied with his second film, the comedy “Seed Al Atify.” Tamer noted that the film will present him in a new light, and he is optimistic of the outcome.
Bringing up the rear is the new musical comedy “Habeeba’s Sons” starring Hamada Hilal.
“Despite the strong competition amongst summer films, I believe that everyone will get their fair share of success, since people have different movie-going tastes,” Hamada declared.
