Hanan Turk furious with Kathem El Saher
Egyptian actress Hanan Turk has expressed extreme anger at the way she was humiliated in the new clip she filmed with prominent Iraqi singer Kathem El Saher. The actress stress that her participation was not marked a unique one and she appeared as any other model that acts in a music video.
According to the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />London based weekly, Laha, Hanan added that the actions of the director, who omitted most of the scenes she had done, was unprofessional and contradicting to what she had expected. The producing company of the clip had tired to reconcile with the actress by adding a special thanks to her efforts in the script of the song, a matter that in fact lessened the anger of Hanan.
El Saher had chosen Hanan for the leading role in his music video “Ahibini” (Love Me), which is written by the late renowned Lebanese poet Nizar Qabani. The song is from his latest album “Ila Tilmethuh” (To His Student), which was released during the Muslim Eid Al Fitr holiday.
Hanan had expressed her honor at being chosen by such a renowned singer stressing that Kathem’s songs are so rich with meaning that the words of his songs come straight from the heart. The clip was filmed as a short movie that holds a patriotic and romantic theme to it revolving around two lovers who attempt to meet one another but certain circumstances makes their meeting close to impossible. The song was filmed between Cairo and Dubai under the direction of Jordanian director Hussein Du’aibis.
