Ruby exclusively on Infinity
Egyptian singer/actress Ruby was finally able to bring some success to her first movie “Sabi’ Warakat Kotcheena” (Seven Playing Cards), after it had been experiencing losses in its first weeks of screening. The singer is also preparing to film a new video clip for the song “Ibka Kabilni” (Keep Meeting Me), which is one of the songs in her first album that was released earlier this month.
According to the London based Elaph, the new clip will be directed by Sherif Sabri, Ruby’s business manager, and filming will begin within the upcoming few days in Egypt.
Sabri stated that Ruby will have a new look and a new style that is totally different than her fans are used to. Sabri refused to give out any further details regarding the clip wanting it to be a surprise for everyone.
Sabri is rushing to have the video clip ready as soon as possible because he signed an agreement with Infinity music satellite channel to broadcast the clip exclusively, which is a new channel and will be launched officially in October. It has been revealed that Sabri owns shares in the new channel and will hold a special launching ceremony in Dubai, where Ruby is also scheduled to participate. Ruby's clip will be the first exclusive one to be broadcasted on this channel in an attempt to gather as much viewers as possible for the newly established channel.
On a related context, Showtime bought the exclusive rights to show Ruby's movie and the movie will be broadcasted on Showtime's Cinema Home channel. Sabri announced that the singer’s film (Seven Playing Cards) will be screened on Showtime, and in Dubai and Beirut uncensored. Sharif revealed that the film will be shown with all the seventeen scenes that were cut in Egypt by the censorship committee.
Sharif stressed that screening the film uncut is the only way it can be seen because all the scenes that were deleted in Egypt made the film loose its essential meaning. The producer added that he had previously agreed to the alterations made by the Egyptian Censorship in order not to rate it for adults only. –Albawaba.com
