Hind Sabri joins Adel Imam in the fight against corruption
Tunisian actress Hind Sabri has signed a contract to star in the new Egyptian film “Aamarat Ya’qoubian” alongside prominent actor Adel Imam. More than 16 actors and actresses are expected to participate in the movie with talks about life in Egypt during the revolution until now. The story is narrated through the life of tenants of Ya’qoubian building in downtown Cairo.
After six years of separation, Adel Imam returned to work with famous scenarist Waheed Hamed. The new project the two are working on is quoted from the novel “Aamaret Ya’qoubian” and filming is scheduled to begin in the few coming weeks. The director for the new film will be Marwan, the son of scenarist Waheed Hamid, and he is given a strong start as his first step into directing. The movie is about fighting corruption and Adel performs the role of a high ranked official who is suspected to be involved in different acts of corruption. Adel voiced that he was not on bad terms with Waheed for the past six years, and its just that Waheed was writing stories that were not suitable for him.
On a different note, Hind, who is the first actress to hold a Masters Degree in Law and is widely known for her daring qualities in acting, denied allegations that she strives to steal the spotlight and acting opportunities from Egyptian actresses. Hind simply said that when she is offered a role that appeals to her she accepts it without any cruel intentions of taking someone else’s role.
Hind stressed that her presence in the Egyptian cinema does affect others for the simple fact that the Egyptian cinema market releases at least twenty five films a year which means it can absorb an indefinite number of actresses and actors. Hind added that she has moved to Egypt since her acting career is tied with the Egyptian cinema. A high demand for Hind is present among producers for the fact that she has proved to be an outstanding actress the previous films she took part in.
The wave of calling in Lebanese and Tunisian actresses' to replace Egyptian ones by producers and directors has caused rise for anger and disappointments. Many reasons have led to these replacements most of which have to do with the success foreign actresses proved starring in Egyptian films and the fact that most Egyptian actresses' have refused to accept roles that call for some form of intimacy and being seductive. - Albawaba.com
