Director Ahmad Sameer Faraj has confirmed that the film “Abiad Aswad” (Black and White), which marks Lebanese singer Maya Nasri’s debut on the big screen, will be ready for screening during the second Muslim holiday Eid Al Adha.
Maya’s dream of acting had finally come true with this film, which she acts in alongside Egyptian actors Mustafa Shabaan, Ahmad Saeed Abdul Ghani, Muhsin Mansour and Muna Al Maraghi.
The film, written by Nader Salah El Din, is directed by Ahmad Faraj, his first feature length film, and is produced by Hisham Abdul Khaleq.
Maya said that she is honored to have the opportunity to star in her first film, and highlighted her previous acting experience in different television programs since 1996.
In the film, Maya plays the role of a singer and aerobics instructor who, after a severe accident, is forced to hire a private body guard played by Mustafa. This new relationship marks the beginning of their romance.
Maya speaks Arabic in the Egyptian dialect in the film, masking her true Lebanese identity well. She performs two dramatic songs in the film.
