Ruby returns as a spoiled girl
After an absence from the scenes and tabloids that lasted for a few months, Egyptian controversial singer Ruby has reappeared after she was nominated for the leading role in the upcoming film “Dala’ Al Banat” (Spoiled Girls) alongside famous Egyptian bodybuilder champion Al Shahat Mabrouk and Olympic golden medal winner Karam Jaber.
According to the London based daily, Dar Al Hayat, Ruby is to play the role of a very attractive aerobics instructor that works with a young athletic champion trying to help him win the bodybuilding medal. Throughout the course of the film, the young athlete falls for his instructor and a very heated love affair begins.
Ruby will be performing a number of songs throughout the film and it has been revealed that she has been offered a very high wage for her role. It is not understood why the singer has been offered such a high wage despite the fact that it is only her second film and her first did not mark any significant success.
Since the fifties, Egyptian singers tried to use their success in singing to have an acting career and the first one to start the trend was singing legend Abdul Halim Hafiz, who was the only one to succeed in both acting and singing.
Many others tried but most of them stopped after the first or second movie because they felt that failure will face them if they went any further. Among those who tried and stopped were Hani Shaker, Afaf Radi, Majida Roumi and Latifa.
It has also been revealed that Sherif Sabri, Ruby’s business manager, will be directing the new film. Ruby managed to bring some profits from her first acting experience in the movie “Sabi’ Warakat Kotcheena” (Seven Playing Cards), after it had been experiencing losses in its first weeks of screening. 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 will be screened on Showtime, and in Dubai and Beirut uncensored with all the seventeen scenes that were cut in Egypt by the censorship committee.
Sharif stressed that screening the film uncut was 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.
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. Sabri, Ruby’s business manager, will direct the new clip 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. –Albawaba.com
