Syrian singer/actress Amal Arafeh has recently announced her wedding date to Syrian actor Abdul Mun’em Amaieri will be held in early January 2003. The couple has announced their engagement last week and decided to spend their honeymoon in Beirut, the London based Elaph reported.
Amal has been working hard trying to complete the scenario for a new TV drama before her wedding. The new drama will revolve around a young girl at the age of 17 (played by Amal) that transforms into a popular singer all over the Arab world. Shooting is expected to begin early next year after the singer returns from her honeymoon.
In October, Arafeh completed scenes for another TV series "Awrak Imra'a" (A Female's Memoirs), with director Osama Shukeir. The series, written by Diana Fares and Samar Yazbek, tackles the younger generation recklessness and the illusions of love. Arafeh plays the role of young housewife, Nada, also a single mother, who was left behind by her equally young husband to raise their only son with very little money. Nada’s financial and social sufferings begin after her husband’s sudden departure, forcing her to go from one house to another trying to secure for herself and her child a stable lifestyle. After years of leading a desperate life, Nada’s ex-husband re-emerges married to a rich woman, battling to gain the custody of his only child.
On a different note, Amal is contemplating offers from several music production companies on her upcoming album, after ending her contract with Megastar Company.
Arafeh’s talents were passed on to her from her father Suheil Arafeh. She is one of Syria’s prominent singers, who started her career singing national songs composed by her father. From there, she came into acting, playing significant roles in a number of Syrian TV series, like “Eileh Khams Njoum” (A Five Stars Family), and “Khan Al Harir” (Al Harir Inn). – Albawaba.com
