Lindsay Lohan says coming to KSA for all-female film

JEDDAH: Lindsay Lohan will begin filming an all-female movie in Saudi Arabia this April.
This was revealed in a profile interview of the “Mean Girls” actress with magazine on Monday.
“To do an all-female project [in Saudi Arabia] is a milestone,” she said.
“Everything happens for a reason. I would have never expected to do a movie at this time that I have such a say in, and coming out of Shadi, Riyadh, and Abu Dhabi. I feel lucky.”
Last month, Lohan first revealed plans to shoot “Frame” in the Kingdom on American talk show “The Wendy Williams Show.”
She said the movie will follow the story of an American photographer who leaves her husband in the US to move to Riyadh. The character becomes immersed in Saudi culture and is taken in by a group of women who introduce her to their lives.
“She starts to understand the culture and how the women there are,” Lohan told Williams. “Like fencing is a big thing there, so there are a lot of fencing courses and horseback riding ... the women take her in to understand why they cover and why they do these things.”
In December, Lohan, who now calls Dubai home, tweeted out an article about the cinema and stadium reforms in Saudi Arabia, saying, “Please support this incredible #movement … I look forward to being a part of this with the movie #FRAMETHEMOVIE.”
The 31-year-old actress also told W magazine about her new projects, including a beauty line that includes a cream lipstick-blush duo, a clothing line that’s “closer to haute couture,” a new Mykonos location of her Lohan Nightclub in Athens, Greece, and an appearance in the upcoming season of the British sitcom “Sick Note.”

Lebanese nightclub shutdown after playing Qur’anic verses during party

DUBAI: A Lebanese nightclub was shut down on Saturday night after videos surfaced across social media where Qur’anic verses can be heard playing over music during a party, local media reported.
Beirut Governor Judge Ziad Chebib ordered the closure of popular club, The Garten, for “lacking proper registration and promoting material that offends religious beliefs.”
This is not the first nightclub of the same owners to be closed due to indecent acts. Earlier this year, Diskotek was shut after a provocative, sexually-explicit stage performance went viral on social media.
The Garten is a popular open-air venue situated on Beirut’s water front that hosts world-renowned DJs and performers.
