Arab Idol star Mohammed Assaf and his fiance Lina Qishawi have appeared together for the first time since they announced their engagement.
The couple made an appearance at Mohammed Assaf's movie "The Idol" at the BFI.
The movie inspired by the story of ‘Arab Idol’ star Mohammed Assaf last night witnessed its European debut at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival.
The screening of ‘The Idol’ at the star-studded UK festival, which runs until October 18, was attended by MBC Group Chairman Sheikh Waleed Al-Ibrahim, as well as Ahmad Alhendawi, the United Nations Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth.
Al-Ibrahim said Assaf’s story had brought hope to many in the Palestinian territories and wider Arab world.
The ‘Arab Idol’ himself recorded three songs for the movie’s soundtrack, with music for the film written by renowned Palestinian composer Habib Shehadeh Hanna. Assaf’s new songs for the movie will be distributed worldwide through Platinum Records, an MBC Group subsidiary.
