Nicole herself revealed that she was in shock when she had received a phone call from Adel asking her to be in his new film. She added that at first she thought it was a prank. The opportunity opened the gateway for Nicole into the Arab version of Hollywood and led many producers and directors to begin offering her roles in their films.
In the movie Nicole admits that she has stepped into the world of celebrities.

Nicole admitted that Adel gave her a push forward to go on to establish a new career in acting in addition to her original career as a singer.

She stressed that she did her role as a foreign girl and she acted as one. Nicole uttered that she did not come up with anything new regarding her clothes worn in the movie, saying that in all Arab movies since the sixties actresses were wearing revealing dresses and bathing suits, so what she wore was nothing out of the ordinary. –Albawaba.com
