Director Tarek Hashem has finally succeeded in convincing Egyptian belly-dancer Dina to star in a film alongside her rivalry Egyptian belly-dancer Lucy in the new film “Fustan Iryan” (Revealing Dress), marking his first directing experience. Both dancers agreed after endless negotiations and will each be performing three dance performances throughout the film.
The film is a social romantic one revolving around the quest to be famous and winning the heart of a man. The director will begin shooting the first scenes of the film after the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, reported the UAE based daily, Al Bayan.
Concerning her acting career and why she always plays the part of a belly dancer, Dina stressed that this is the only roles that she is always nominated for, and she picks the best scenarios that presents the belly dancer as a good person and improves her image in society.
On a different note, Dina revealed that she is currently living a spicy and heated love affair and is preparing for her sixth marriage. The dancer stressed that she is publicly announcing her marriage not wanting to repeat her previous experience of the scandal with her ex-husband Hussam Abu El Fotooh, whom she was married to in secret.
Dina refused to reveal the identity of her future husband to a group of friends from the entertainment world and some VIP figures, stressing that her love is not part of the entertainment world and he had stood beside her throughout her agony with the scandal and supported her all the way.
Dina noted that her mother’s support and her self-confidence and good manners also helped her in being able to stand on her feet once more and return to her career. Dina is back to resume her career as one of the most popular belly dancers and actresses in the Arab world. An Arab website held an interview with her where she stressed that she does not care any more about being judged by critics, adding that as long as she is convinced of what she is doing then nothing beyond that matters. –Albawaba.com
