The cast of the film “Kalam Fil Hub” (Love Talk), starring prominent Egyptian actress Yusra, is scheduled to arrive in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Syria by the end of the week where they will stay for 10 days to shoot a number of scenes. Many were surprised to learn that filming of scenes will take place in Syria because it was previously scheduled to be in Morocco.


According to the London based Elaph, the change in countries is mainly due to the fact that the cost of filming in Syria is much cheaper than Morocco a matter that led the producing company to make the shift.


The film is directed by Ali Idris and written by his wife Zeinab Aziz. The film “Love Talk” had already been postponed numerous times in the past four years due to the fact that Yusra was too busy with other works. The story of “Love Talk” revolves around a waitress in a restaurant who goes through different situations and relationships with various kinds of men. Yusra’s role in the film is one she has never played before, an experience the actress looks forward to.  


Yusra nominated Egyptian actor Hisham Salim for the male leading role in the film, instead of prominent actor Ahmad Zaki, and mainly due to the latter’s health condition. Egyptian actors Sharif Muneer and Hanan Turk will also take part in the new movie.  


On a different note, Yusra is currently holding extensive work sessions with a number of poets to choose the appropriate songs for her second album. Yusra revealed that her second encounter in the music world will be an extremely different experience than that of her first album.


Yusra stressed that the new album will contain a variety of songs that suit all tastes in order to attract as many listeners as possible. Yusra stressed she will continue to sing and make music videos despite the strong criticism she faced. The actress is also holding extensive work sessions with composer Hameed Al Sha’erri to decide on a new song for her to sing and film as a music video.
