Fifi Abdo vows to dance until her last breath
Egyptian belly dancer Fifi Abdo has denied circulating rumors of her resignation from belly dancing stressing that her success as an actress does not mean her giving up her number one passion. The dancer noted that she only eliminated dancing at private parties and weddings, but as long as her health condition allows it she will keep on dancing at certain occasions.
According to the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />London based weekly, Laha, Fifi revealed that she does not consider dancing as a taboo, but rather an art and part of Egypt’s heritage. The dancer added that many thought that she would give up dancing after the death of her mother, which led her to halt her play “Idala’ee Ya Doosa”, stressing that the incident was hard on her and she was in need of time off from the entertainment world.
Fifi expressed her joy at the success of her television drama “Al Hakika Wal Sarab”, which witnessed tremendous success all over the Arab world. Fifi revealed that she was shocked when her idol Hind Rustom made a personal call to her and congratulated her on the role she played. The dancer added that she intends on starring in a new television drama that will take viewers by surprise as was the case in her previous one.
Recently, Hind Rustom turned down an invitation received by Fifi to attend a special party held at her home in Hind’s honor. Hind stressed to Fifi that she does not like to leave her home and only attends events if they are of extreme importance.
