The film will mark Hakim’s first leading role in the cinema, an experience the singer stresses is not thought of a mere urge for a singer to act, but rather a passion he has been preparing for in the past five years.
According to the London based Elaph, Hakim revealed that in the past years he has been going through many different film ideas but finally decided on “Ali Spicy”, in which he plays the role of careless medical student whose passion is to become a singer and heal people with his music.
In the film, Hakim performs five different songs, two of which are sung as a duet with Summaya, who had also sung duets with Egyptian singer Mustafa Amar in his film “Bahibak Wi Ana Kaman”. Summaya has expressed her happiness at returning to the cinema, after an absence that lasted for over a year and a half. She added that the film holds humanistic meaning and is a romance musical combined with comedy.
Summaya is at the same time filming her role in the new film “Amarit Ya’qoubain” alongside prominent Egyptian comedian-actor Adel Imam and a number of some of Egypt’s most notable actors and actresses.
