Hind Sabri calls off engagement
Tunisian actor Hind Sabri has broken her engagement with scenarist Mohammad Hafithi, after the two had been engaged for only a few months.
The couple had encountered several obstacles that could not be overcome leading to their split.
Neither Hind nor Mohammad revealed the reasons behind the quick breakup.
Hind had said that she was very much in love with Mohammad, and that he is the partner she has been searching for all of her life. The couple has been involved for some time, but postponed the public announcement of their relationship. Hind denied that the delay of their engagement was due to reservations on the part of Mohammad's family.
A private engagement party was held in the presence of very close friends and family members.
On a different note, Sabri was sworn in by the Tunisian Appeals Court as a lawyer.
Hind had been fighting for over a year with the Tunisian Lawyers Association to become a lawyer. The Association claimed that Hind’s acting career reflected negatively upon the legal profession in Tunisia.
Hind fought the Association’s decision and filed an appeal. Her lawyer argued that Hind never considered acting as her sole profession. He also stated that Hind resides in Tunisia and not Egypt.
The lawyer cited other lawyers who have additional professions in the media who did not face discrimination.
Hind said that she does not know whether she will continue acting, or resign to focus on her career as a lawyer.
