Prominent Egyptian actress Yusra has been taking Salsa lessons to prepare for her upcoming role in the film "Tiji Nur'us" (Lets Dance), directed by the controversial Enas Al Dughaidi.
Yusra plays the role of a lawyer for a major firm who realizes that life is just passing by, without her enjoying it. She decides to turn her life around, although the drastic changes she makes, eventually negatively affect her family.
Yusra requested that Enas change the original title of the film from “Al Ragsa Al Akheera” (The Last Dance) to “Tiji Nur'us” (Let Dance), claiming that the first title sounded too negative.
The film is an adaptation of the Hollywood production “Lets Dance,” starring Richard Geere and Jennifer Lopez.
The difference between her film and the American version is that the latter has a male as the leading actor, while the Egyptian version presents her as the leading star, explained Yusra.
The script is written by Osama Abdul Thaher and stars Tamer Hajris, Izzat Abu Ouf, Hala Sidqi, and Randa Al Buhairi.
