KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3 — Datuk Sheila Majid has made quite an impression on “Sinaran” co-star as actress Lisa Surihani is singing her praises even though the songstress only appeared in a cameo role.

Lisa revealed that she was excited, yet at the same time nervous, when she got to act together with the nation’s jazz queen.

“I am happy to have acted with her. Only God knew the feeling in my heart when I got to be close to her during acting.

“In front of her, I acted cool and calm. But I was actually nervous. Though something that must be praised about Sheila is her commitment,” said the actress to BH Online.

In the Osman Ali movie, Sheila Majid appears as a mentor to Lisa’s character, Shila.

Her scenes with Sheila Majid were strenuous, the wife to director, actor and movie producer Yusry Abdul Halim admitted, but it was a sweet memory for Lisa nevertheless. The two had to film all through the day until early next morning, Lisa revealed.

Apart from Lisa and Sheila Majid, the Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia joint-production also stars Evan Sanders, Nadiah M Din, Izara Aishah and more.
