Egyptian actress Menna Shalaby has lined up her next film role in the upcoming project from director Hadi El Bagoury and scriptwriter Tamer Habib.

The project is a musical and features Shalaby taking on the genre for the first time.

On the other hand, Shalaby plans to participate in the Ramadan 2025 drama marathon with the "Lahm Wi Dam".

The series consists of 8 episodes and hails from director Karim El-shenawy.

"Lahm Wi Dam" is set to debut during the drama marathon on the "Shahid‎‏" streaming platform.

Menna Shalaby

Shalaby, born on July 24, 1981, is the daughter of former belly dancer and actress Zizi Mustafa. She is one of the brightest actresses among the younger generation of Egyptian stars.

The actress showed a passion for acting from a very early age, no doubt due to the exposure to the industry her mother’s fame provided.

Shalaby made her film debut in “Al Saher” (The Magician) as Nour in 2001. She scored her next role alongside prominent actress Layla Elwy in the 2004 film “Baheb El Seema”.

Since then, she has co-starred with many talented actors and directors such as renowned director Youssef Chahine in the film “Heya Fawda” (2007), Ahmed Abdallah in the film “Microphone” (2010), and Yousry Nasrallah in the film “Baad el Mawkeaa” (2012) about the infamous Battle of the Camel during the January 25 uprising.
