Ac­tress to duet with Fat­tah Amin for new TV se­ries, writes LOONG WAI TING

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

FRESH from resin­leas­ing her gle, Noth­ing Like Pag-Ibig, with Filipino singer JaacNur son Dy, pop­u­lar tress and singer Fazura Shar­i­fud­din is ea­ger to re­turn to the record­ing stu­dio to record an­other duet — this time around, with tele­vi­sion heart-throb, ac­tor Fat­tah Amin, 26, of Suri Hati Mr Pi­lot fame.

Ti­tled Hero Se­o­rang Cin­derella, the pop bal­lad, which is writ­ten and com­posed by singer­song­writer Aizat Am­dan, is the of­fi­cial sound­track for the 24episode drama se­ries of the same name.

Not only that, Fazura’s fifth sin­gle, Bisa Apa, re­leased early this year, will also be in­cluded in the se­ries’s sound­track.

How­ever, due to their busy film­ing sched­ules, the duo will head to the stu­dio at a later date.

“Both of us are tied up with film­ing the TV se­ries in Pu­lau Per­hen­tian.

“Next week, we will fly to Bel­gium to con­tinue film­ing the re­main­ing scenes for the drama,” said Fazura, 34, at the launch of Noth­ing Like Pag-Ibig at Red Box, The Gar­dens in Kuala Lumpur re­cently.

Fazura, who won the Best Ac­tress award at the 27th Malaysian Film Fes­ti­val in 2015, said she loved the up­beat mood of the duet with Fat­tah.

“The beat is catchy and up­lift­ing.

“I was drawn to it when I heard it for the first time.”

In the drama se­ries, Fazura and Fat­tah play on­screen cou­ple Nura Me­d­ina and Tengku Ian Uz­zam.

This marks their first act­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion.

Fazura has been on sev­eral “dates” with Fat­tah to help build the chem­istry be­tween them so that their por­trayal in the drama will be con­vinc­ing.

“Fat­tah is a nice guy but he is very shy. Some­times, we make fun of each other.

“This helps take away the awk­ward­ness when play­ing on­screen cou­ple,” she said.

Hero Se­o­rang Cin­derella, di­rected by Michael Ang, will pre­miere on May 22 on Astro Ria (Astro chan­nel 104).
