Lebanese singer Maya Nasri is residing in Cairo on a temporary basis to attend acting lessons at director Mohammad Abdul Hadi’s Studio. The singer is preparing for her first ever role in an upcoming film.
Maya was nominated by her production company ‘Rotana’ to enter the acting world through the first films produced by the company. The singer signed two separate contracts to star in two Egyptian films.
According to the London based weekly, Sayidaty, Maya expressed joy over her upcoming acting experience, and stated that the role she was offered is well suited for her. The singer refused to reveal any further details about the film, but noted that she will be playing the role of an Egyptian lady.
Maya is also taking advantage of her stay in Cairo to film the song “Rouh” (Go) in the form of a music video under the direction of Khaled Al Bajouri.
On a different note, Maya has recently renewed her contract with the cosmetic company Loreal for a second year. The singer revealed that the company is very happy with the first advertising commercial Maya appeared in, and will continue airing it.
Nasri has released her latest album "Izai Ta’rifni" (How You Will Know Me), marking her first under ‘Rotana,’ after breaking her contract with ‘Alam El Phan.’ The album features eight songs that vary in style and dialect.
