Egyptian actor Ashraf Abdel Baqi is preparing to let the cameras roll for his latest film, Estanglina, directed by Sayyed Seif and scripted by Walid Seif, according to the Qatari daily Al Rayah. 

The film stars Nermin Al Faqi, Ahmed Rateb, Shweikar, Yousef Daoud and a number of new actors. 

The film belongs to the fantasy and comedy genre and explores the life of a young man who inherits a piece of land from his grandfathers. A dispute erupts over the land, which is settled by the courts in favor of the young man – after 20 years. 

When the young man receives the court verdict, he is surprised to find a lunatic asylum built on his land.  

The asylum officials agree to return the land to him, provided that he takes it all, complete with the asylum and its insane residents. 

Abdel Baqi is also gearing up to shoot his latest comedy and romantic film Ethnan Fi Hadid (Two Handcuffed), scripted by Mohammed Aziz and directed by Hasan Ibrahim, and costarring a number of new stars -
