Tamer Husni's cinematic debut postponed
Producer Mohammad Al Sabky has decided to postpone screening the film "Amr and Salma" until the summer season. The film was scheduled to be released in January.
The film is a romantic story staring Egyptian singer Tamer Husni and actors Mai Izz El din, Izzat Abu Ouf, Mais Hamdan, Marwa Abdul Min'em, and Mohammad Suleiman.
On a similar note, Tamer and best friend Haitham Shaker will appear together in a new film, after sharing a prison cell while serving a sentence for forging legal documents to avoid military service.
Producer/director Nasr Mahrous is working on the new film that will feature the two stars. Scenarist Ahmad Abdul Fatah announced the film, “Al Fareeq” (The Team), will be released in the near future.
Ahmad also wrote the script for Tamer’s first film “Halet Hub” (A Case of Love).
Tamer and Haitham were convicted by a military court and sentenced to a one year prison term for forging official papers to avoid military service. A third accomplice, who actually forged the papers, received a five-year prison term.
Tamer’s popularity has only increased since his arrest and sentencing.
Husni will return to the scenes after Egyptian General Hussein Tantawi gave his approval for Tamer to give a performance at the Chinese Hall in Nasr City.
Tamer is currently serving in the military and is not permitted to hold concerts without the military’s approval.
The event is organized by head of the Egyptian company MobiNil, Najib Sweiris in Cairo. Sweiris succeeded in getting the military’s permission for Tamer to sing, reported the London based Elaph. Once the military gave the singer the green light to perform preparations began for the big event.
