Fifi Abdu (1994) عبده‎ فيفى

This is Egyptian bellydancer Fifi Abdu appearing as Noha the bellydancer in the 1994 stage play ‘Hazzemni Ya’ (‘Tie Me Up’ حزمني يا). It’s a social comedy that tells the story of Zawawi and his wife Bahija who, together with his brothers live happily in their small rented house until the owner wants to pull it down and build a new building on the site. The play starred Hassan Hosny, Magda Zaki and Mohamed Heneidi.
Trivia: Also starring was Egyptian singer/actor Medhat Saleh who was sued by Fifi Abdu in 2003 for ‘unpaid debts’. It all got messy and Fifi Abdu subsequently sued Saleh’s former wife Shireen for slander. Eventually Fifi and Saleh were reconciled in 2006. Medhat Saleh was later engaged to Syrian singer Asala’s sister Amani (not the dancer), then they broke up as Asala and her husband opposed the union, but he married Amani anyway.
