Egyptian singer Shireen Abdul Wahab agreed to shave her head and become bald after Egyptian singer Mohammad Foad requested her to do so for the role she will playing in his upcoming film “Wifa and Tuma”.
Shireen stated she will shave her head once she completes her summer concert schedule. Filming of the scenes is set to take place in the winter season.
Shireen had also requested her former producer and business manager, Nasr Mahrous, to agree to her singing one of the songs he had previously wrote for her despite their breakup to include in the film. Nasr agreed to the request, showing that he holds no hard feelings towards Shireen and that the two are now friends and will remain so, reported the Kuwaiti based daily, Al Watan.
Recently, Egyptian singer Hani Shaker revealed that he will include a duet, “Ana Qalbi Leik” (My Heart is for You), Shireen in his new album to be released this month.
“Ana Qalbu Leik” was written by poet Baha Al Deen Muhammad and composed by Muhammad Diya.
Hani and Shireen’s producers, ‘High Quality Production’ and ‘Rotana’ respectively, agreed to the inclusion of the duet. Shireen said that she is honored to work with a well known singer like Hani. Likewise, Hani said that he is pleased to work with Shireen, whose beautiful voice is of highest quality in the Arab World. The new song came into the spotlight recently after Hani resolved a dispute between Shireen and her former producer Naser Mahroos.
Hani and Shireen have performed the duet at numerous events, and recently at the Egyptian ‘Cairo Opera House’. Hani, Shireen, and Egyptian singer Muhammad Munir recently held a concert in Sudan. The concert was held in Darfur, benefiting families who are struggling to survive.
