There are so many reasons to be excited about Menna Shalabi's return to Egyptian cinema, the most exciting one - and this one's for all her male fans - being her upcoming role as a belly dancer!
Luckily, Menna's mother is the famous former belly dancer Zizi Mustafa; surely she will be learning her moves from the best of the best for "Ahl Al Aib" (People of Shame).
According to Sayidaty.net, Menna said, "The film will mark my return to Egyptian cinema after a years-long absence due to the lack of good scripts. I've been in London where I was taking acting and language courses.
"I have signed a contract with producer Ahmad al Sabki to play the leading role in the film, and he's informed me that a large budget has been set for its production. In the film, I'll be playing the role of a belly dancer."
Filming will begin in October, once scenarist Tamer Habib has finalized the script.
Mina noted that she was previously scheduled to begin filming scenes for a new television drama, but the project has now been postponed.
