Hanan Turk forces Laila Ilwi to postpone new film
Egyptian actress Laila Ilwi requested for a postponement of her new film "Hubb Al Banat" (Girls Romance) from director Majdi Ahmad due to Hanan Turk's sudden decision to not take part in it. Hanan was to play a major role as the daughter of Ilwi in the film making her decision difficult to continue the film unless a replacement is found.
According to the UAE based daily, Al Bayan, Egyptian actor Ashraf Abdul Raziq also apologized for not being able to continue working at the moment due to the sudden death of his dear friend Egyptian actor Alaa Wali El Din. Ashraf requested that the filming be postponed for at least one month and a half.
The death of Alaa was also one of the reasons Laila had requested the postponement from Majdi, saying that she felt it more appropriate.
Laila Elwi has decided after a long absence to return to the theater stage and TV this season. Her first performance will be for a play, whose name has not been revealed.
Laila will also be taking part in a new TV series written by screenwriter Wahid Hamid called “Bint Meen Fi Masr” (The Daughter of Who in Egypt).
Laila had expressed her disappointment for not completing the film “Bahib el Cinema” (I Love The Cinema), costarring Mahmoud Hamida and directed by Osama Fouzy, due to the increasing cost of cinema productions. She added this is the first time in her life that a film production she worked on has been forced to cut short and not completing it. - Albawaba.com
