Hala Shiha resigns and wears the hijab again
Young Egyptian actress Hala Shiha has shocked the entertainment world by announcing her resignation for the second time in her career. The actress has also recommitted herself to wearing the Islamic headdress, the Hijab, and stressed that her decision is final.
Hala has also moved back to her family’s home, and has refused to make further comment regarding her sudden decision.
According to the Qatar based daily, Al Raya, this marks the second time the actress has made this decision, the first time was in 2003.
Earlier this month Hala was discretely visiting cinema houses around Egypt to get a first hand impression of people’s reaction to her new films, “Ghawi Hubb”, also starring Egyptian singer Mohammad Foad and “Ureedo Khal’an” (I Want a Divorce), starring Ahsraf Abdul Baki.
Hala made a point to enter the films after they had begun and exited before they ended, to avoid being caught in the crowd. She was also curious to see the number of moviegoers in attendance.
On a different note, Hala denied circulating rumors that she is having an affair with soccer play Emad Mit’eb. The actress was socked by how rapidly the rumor was spreading and by the colorful lies that were created.
