Durra’s definitely daring, but not in real life
Egyptian controversial director Enas Al Dughaidi returns once more to her fans through the new Ramadan show "Huwa...Hiah wa Al Jarieah" (Him...Her and the Daring One) on Rotana Egypt and LBC. The show features a number of VIPs and celebrities in heated interviews.
The first episode featured Tunisian actress Durra. Durra said to Enas that she considers herself very daring in her career but not daily life. The bold buck stops with the role she plays.
According to the Middle East news portal Elaph, Dura refuses to accept roles with intimacy or anything too daring for the Arab society. She thinks of her ethics and religious teachings when it comes to choosing roles. If she is offered a role that is considered offensive to either one, she immediately refuses it.
Even with these standards in mind, Durra is fearless playing the role of the dancer 'Rumana' in the television drama "Mazaj Al Khair" (Good Mood) ‘cause the dancing costumes she wears are very conservative and holy month approved.
An avid watcher of dance since she was a young girl, the drama diva is surprised that many consider oriental dancing to be inapprope.
Durra took a small step of humility when Enas asked her where she sees herself among other Tunisian celebrities like Hind Sabri, Sandi and Feryal Yousif. She considers herself in second place following Hind Sabri, whom she sees as the number one Tunisian actress.
