Egyptian actress Laila Elwi will begin shooting the scenes of her upcoming film “Farah Laila” (Laila’s Wedding) this February.
The film had been postponed due to Laila’s commitments to the film “Alwan Al Sama Al Saba” (The color of the Seven Skies), in addition to her participation on the judging panel of the Dubai Film Festival.
According to the London based weekly, Laha, after Laila returned from Dubai, she held extensive work sessions with writer/director of the film Khaled Al Hajar to discuss the details of the movie, and to choose the remaining cast.
Despite the nomination of a number of actors, the director refused to reveal any names until he receives their final approval.
The film revolves around a young lady who refuses to get married, but changes her mind once she meets the man of her dreams.
Laila is also scheduled to travel to Boston, Massachusetts, where she will take part in an American film “Rouh Malak” (An Angel’s Soul), directed by Egyptian born George Al Mutairi, who immigrated to the United States 35 years ago.
The film revolves around a young Egyptian woman, whose powerful spirit allows her to predict the future, beginning with events that will happen to family members residing in America.
Americans begin to seek her unique ability to have their fortunes told. The remaining cast, comprised of Egyptian and American actors has yet to be chosen.
On a different note, Laila has denied circulating rumors that she was secretly married. If she were to marry she would proudly announce it, said Laila.
Laila questioned why she has been accused of such an act, when it is well known that she is an open person with nothing to hide.
