Ola Ghanem denies copying Ghada Abdel Raziq's style
Both Egyptian actresses are known for their distinctve dress sense including a dalliance with on-off-on again head veiling but the question has become: who is the original and who is the coypcat?
Ola Ghanem has been accused of copying Ghada's style in her new drama 'Zuhra wa Azwajha al Khamsah' (Zuhra and Her Five Husbands) but she says that's nonsense.
However the similarity between Ola's style on 'Zuhra' and Ghada's dresses on her previous TV drama 'Al Zawja al Rabia' (The Fourth Wife) are striking. Now Ola has told reporters that she never even watched Ghada's show to try and defend herself from the copycat accusations.
The actress said that director of the drama, Majdi Al Huwari, was the one who decided the attire for her role and that she merely followed the guidelines given.
