Nagwa Sultan is the dancer and Galal Shafik is the singer in this scene from the 1984 Egyptian film ‘Hadi Badi’ (translates as being like the English ‘eeni meeni’. There’s a really interesting article about Nagwa Sultan on ‘The Gilded Serpent’ 

The film tells the story of Dr Saber played by Samir Ghanem who has married a fellow doctor, Laila played by Dalal Abdel Aziz.  The marriage took place overseas and on his return to Egypt Saber keeps the marriage secret as he was supposed to marry Subia, the lesser educated niece of Khader played by Farid Shawki.  In this scene he’s marrying Subhia.

Trivia: Two of the stars of this film, Samir Ghanem and Dala Abdel Aziz are married to each other.  Their two daughters are both successful actors.
