This is the multi-costume finale from the 1991 film ‘Baia al shay’ (The Tea Seller بائعة الشاي ) which starred Dina along with Saeed Saleh and Hussein al Sherbini.

Dina’s co-star Saeed Saleh has said in interviews that it is “an honour for any female artists to be kissed by him, especially since his kiss is one of a kind.” He ended up trouble in 2011 when The Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs in Egypt demanded that he be banned from tv and film etc as he had been quoted as saying “he sees nothing with people having sex before marriage as long as the two….have an agreement to get married.”
