Upon her return from Beirut, Lebanese singer Nicole Saba began filming the first scenes of her upcoming film “Qisset AL Hai Al Sha’bi” (The Story of the Common Neighborhood), also starring Tal’at Zakaria and folk-singer Saed Al Sagheer.
The film is written by Ahmad Abdullah, directed by Ashraf Baqi and produced by Ahmad Al Sabki, and the entire cast and crew held a celebration marking their work on the film.
In the film, Nicole plays the role of a girl who is in love with modern music and singing. Instead she is forced to become a leader of a band specialized in folk music that was previously led by her mother. The film depicts her struggle to fulfill her dreams.
According to the London based Elaph, Nicole has been taken lessons in folk singing for her role in the film.
Nicole considers the film an opportunity to prove her ability to act, after her successful appearance in the film “the Dutch Experience,” alongside comedian-actor Adel Imam.
Nicole has just completed another film “Thaman Dastet Ashrar” (The Price of a Dozen Evils) alongside Yasmin Abdul Aziz.
