Young Egyptian actress Mai Izziddin has begun shooting the first scenes of her latest film “Boha” alongside Egyptian comedian-actor Mohammad Saed, who is considered to be the actor that is bringing in most profit in the past few years. In the new film, Mai plays the role of a common girl, which is a first for her, that falls in love with a young man named “Boha”, who comes to the city in search of a career and ends up working as a butcher.

Doctors have suggested that the mother be under strict supervision and refrain from any straining activity in order to heal in the fastest time possible.
