KUALA LUMPUR, March 28 — After being absent from the big screen for a year since Pak Pong, Siti Saleha is back in action, starring in Malaysia’s first cybercrime-themed movie, Proksi.

The Malaysia Film Festival (FFM)-nominated actress revealed that she will play a small role in the Zulkarnain Azhar-directed movie, which is still in its shooting process.

“It is such a great story with a great lineup,” said the actress to Cinema Online, regarding her decision to have this movie as her feature comeback even if it is just for a small part.

The English-born actress, who has been on hiatus since her marriage to Ahmad Lutfi Azhar on July 28, 2017, will play the role of Diana in the movie, which is scheduled for a 2019 release.

Proksi is an action thriller that centres on two hackers who are forced to stop a mysterious criminal that threatens to disrupt Malaysia’s peace with stolen cyber information.

Other than Siti Saleha, the movie also stars Ashraff Sinclair, Bront Palarae, Remy Ishak, and Sangeeta Krishnasamy.

Siti Saleha is also set to appear in the long-awaited 7ujuh, though the movie has yet to receive a release date, and a TV drama called Bila Aidil Ada Fitri, based on the novel Raya = Aidil + Fitri, airing this June. — CinemaOnline
