Aunt Noor takes Nabila Obeid out of mourning
Egyptian actress Nabila Obeid will return to the filming studios next week to begin shooting the scenes for her upcoming TV drama series "Al Amah Noor" (Aunt Noor). The director Adel Al Aksar and casting crew of the drama were successful in convincing the actress that keeping herself occupied is the best solution to overcoming her sadness and despair, after she had taken some time off to mourn the death of her mother.
According to the Egyptian weekly, Al Nogoom, Adel is currently a tour around the streets of Cairo in order to prepare for the perfect background for the film, one that suits perfectly with the star of the drama Nabila.
Late last year, the actress held negotiations at the Egyptian Production Media City with management officials, demanding that she is paid the same wages as Yusra and Samira Ahmad for “Al Amah Nour, scripted by Mahmoud Abu Zaid.
Nabila demanded 25 thousand Egyptian pounds for each episode of the new drama, which is what Yusra received in “Ayna Qalbi” (Where is My Heart) and what Samira Ahmad received in “Ameera Fi Abdeen” (Ameera in Abdeen).
In September last year, Obeid put a condition for her comeback to the small screen, asking for not less than two million thousand Egyptian pounds for any TV series she is going to shoot. Obeid had announced her comeback to the small screen after a 25 years absence.
On another level, the European Institute on Mediterranean and European Arab cooperation
(MEDEA) has granted the Egyptian actress one of its yearly award in recognition of her ongoing work to enrich the Egyptian cinema. The center held the honoring ceremony with the presence of many well-known figures in Lebanon and the Arab World.
After being absent from the big screen for three years, Obeid plans to return with a new inspirational story for her future film about the life of the late Princess Diana. Nabila prepared to strike up her production company activities after returning from a short trip to London with the new film that is based on the English novel (My love…Don’t enter my city). The Egyptian actress came back with Lady Diana site memories, as well as with the new successful novel for the Senegalese writer “Nany Kamala”. Nabila entrusted this mission to the renowned scenarist Mahmoud Abu Zaid. -Al Bawaba.com
