The film will be produced by Kapoor’s Bayview Projects and co-produced by Fresh Lime Films. Based on Mohamed Sadek’s best-selling book, “Hepta”, directed by Hadi El Bagoury, revolves around the seven stages of love and was one of the highest-grossing romantic films in the history of Egyptian cinema.
