After “Dokan Shahateh” Haifa stays away from the cinema
The famous Lebanese artist Haifa Wahbe refused signing any contract for any film, even if the contract is with the same director that she already worked with Khaled Yousif. She said that she wanted to wait till her first cinema film “Dokan Shahateh” (Shahhateh’s Supermarket) is screened and after she get positive feedback from viewers about her performance.
A while ago there were problems behind the scenes, because Haifa had asked the producer of the film Kamel Abu Ali to replace the introduction of the film in order to add her picture and name because this marks the first film stars in, in Egypt. She believes that it is her right to have a proper introduction that goes with her fame, contrary to how she was ignored in the first introduction.
The director of the film Khaled Yousif refused her request and he believes that as a director he has the right to decide how his film should look like and an actor or actress no matter how famous they are should not influence his decision.
The film’s scenario and script is written by Naser Abed Al Rahman and directed by Khald Yousif. The new film starts Haifa Wahbe, Amro Saed, Ghada Abed Al Razaq and Amro Abed Al Jalil.
