Nelly Karim has revealed that she is set to star in a biopic about legendary belly dancer and actress Samia Gamal. 
The Egyptian-Russian actress,  who is also a professional ballerina, told Arab media that the idea behind the film was hers, and will explore Gamal’s important milestones in her personal life.
“I can’t wait to be involved in this project as it is about someone who was in love with dance, just like I am,” Nelly said. “I have been offered many dance projects, such as Fawazeer during Ramadan, but I don’t think I could do justice to it like [Egyptian performers] Nelly and Sherihan did in the 90s. So I am looking forward to this!”
