Since the last film “Sukoot Han Sawar” Tunisian singer Latifa starred in years back, she revealed that is seriously thinking of entering the cinema once more in the new film “Gana El Hawa”. Young director Mohammad Al Jarwani has nominated Egyptian actors Khales Saleh and Hassan husni to costar alongside Latifa in the film that has taken its title from one of the popular songs of the late Egyptian legendary singer Abdul Halim Hafez.
Latifa is scheduled to hold a a grand performance in spring for the anniversary of martyrs in Tunisia after an absence of four years from holding any concerts in her homeland. Latifa has announced that she will donate her entire wage to a national fund established by Tunisian president Zein Al Abdeen Bin Ali. It has been revealed that the singer’s absence from her country was out of her hand, and the main reason is the organizers of most festivals that take place.
On a different note, amongst the presence of a crowd of celebrities from all around the world Latifa was for the second time presented with the Murex D’or award for Best Female Arab Singer. The singer was chosen through a poll done by critics, journalists and fans. The announcement was made during the Murex Golden Awards Festival, which will be aired on the Lebanese Broadcasting Company in the very near future.
