This isn’t the first time we see this duo together though as they previously hit screens back in 2008 in the movie ‘Ehna Etabelna Abl Keda’.

In this outing, Yassin plays a professional crook, who disguises himself as several different characters, one of which even includes an officer of the law. As he gets to work hatching one of his scams, he meets a like-minded girl named Sokkar, played by Karim. They then join forces and in criminal cahoots together.

Karim’s sassy character Sokkar, works as a beautician and is tempted by the crooked activities in order to fund her dream of owning a beauty parlor. This eventually pays off as the cash comes rolling in from their racket. The Egyptian actress recently shared the official trailer for the series on her Instagram account. Following which both Asser and her shared images on their social channels teasing a bit more about the newly-anticipated series.
