Dina’s nightmare becomes a reality
The Egyptian Censorship committee requested that 15 scenes be deleted from the film “Kawabees” (Nightmares) by Egyptian belly dancer Dina. The censorship had at first refused the film all together due to the inappropriate scenes it contains, saying the issues it tackles are against social ethic and it does not suit the Arab audience.
According to UAE based daily, Al Bayan, Dina insisted that the film receive its acceptance from the Censorship and has planned to begin its production as soon as she gets the green light. The film had been postponed several times first due to the problems with the Censorship and secondly due to the recent series of scandals and commotion Dina has caused. Dina has revealed that she plans on putting all her efforts for completing the film and will begin on choosing the cast after all disputes are cleared and solved.
Dina was hosted as the guest of honor on a TV talk show, in her first public live appearance. Throughout her televised interview, Dina talked openly and bravely about the ordeal she had been living the past six months starting from her involvement in the pornographic video tapes, and up to her recent return after her disappearance from the scenes.
Dina talked about every instance she had experienced, at times breaking out in tears. The audience sympathized with her at times and blamed her at others. Dina had admitted that she did not flee Egypt when the porno films were first out, but had gone away to find peace of mind.
Dina had also revealed that she does not find secret marriages to be a taboo and that if the occasion calls for it she does not have a problem with doing it again. The dancer stressed that she never resigned from her career but rather took time off to relax from all the commotion. She added that she never took off the Hijab (Islamic headdress) for the fact that she never wore it to start with. Dina said that she is not ready to put on the Hijab due to the fact that it requires full devotion, which she is not yet ready for.
It was rumored that Dina took off her Hijab last month and announced her return to the entertainment world after her resignation. Dina has revealed that her return will begin with her acting in several different works in the cinema and on theater stages. Egyptian film producers have begun rushing to the doorstep of the belly dancer with numerous offers to star in films. Dina has so far received over ten different film scenarios, some of which are being filmed at the moment.
Dina had filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband Hussam Abu El Fotooh for violating her rights while she was married to him and making pornography films of her without her knowledge. Dina stressed that she intends to make sure that Hussam pays the price for the fact that it is against the law for a man to film his wife in such an indecent circumstance, and in fact Dina was ecstatic when Hussam was sentenced to a one-year prison term after he was found guilty of the charges against him. –Albawaba.com
