Tamer Husni back in the hot seat
Egyptian singer Tamer Husni has attempted to return to the cinema in secrecy. Sources have revealed that the singer has begun work on his new film “Salma and Omar,” starring Ezzat Abu Ouf, Rami Sameer Waheed, and directed by Akram Fareed.
Filming has begun in the town of Mansourieh. The film has been postponed for eight months, and now Tamer hopes to complete the film in the shortest time possible. Although, by resuming his acting career Tamer may have violated the terms of his probation, which states that he must receive permission for such activities.
The singer’s attorney said that Tamer is permitted to hold musical performances as long as he first gets the military court’s approval.
Tamer and his best friend Haitham Shaker were imprisoned after they were found guilty of forging military documents to avoid military service.
Despite the physical and psychological hardships Tamer faced in prison, he took advantage of his time by working on new entertainment projects. He wrote three screenplays while incarcerated, and even secured the cast and crew of the film “Kul Sana Wi Inta Habibi” (Every Year and You are My Lover).
Husni’s popularity increased dramatically after serving six months in jail.
Tamer was recently offered one million Egyptian pounds to hold a concert during the holy month of Ramadan.
One of Egypt’s biggest concert agents made the offer to the singer, hoping he will agree to hold a performance mid-Ramadan in one of Cairo’s prestigious hotels. It is the highest offer made to any Egyptian or Arab singer, on the condition that it will be Tamer’s first performance after his release, launching him back into stardom.
Husni has denied circulating rumors that he has gotten engaged.
Tamer’s assistant Wael Abdul Fatah, said in a press release that the news of Tamer’s engagement is a fabrication and Tamer does not know a woman named Sarah Mohammad Abdul Raouf, who claimed to be his fiancé.
Wael also said that Tamer hopes to marry in the future, but currently he is devoting all of his efforts to completing his military service, in addition to producing new music.
Rumors claimed that Tamer was preparing for his engagement, to take place during the Muslim holiday Eid El-Fitr Supposedly he had proposed to Sarah right after he was released from prison last month, and the two had been involved in a love affair for the past five years.
Tamer sent over three thousand greetings to his friends, relatives, and fans wishing them a happy Ramadan. He sent another two hundred greeting cards to his close friends in the entertainment world, like actors Mai Izz El Din and Dolly Shahin, and producer Nasr Mahrous.
