Maha Al Masri dissatisfied with Ayman Zaydan
Prominent Syrian actress Maha Al Masri is currently filming the scenes of her upcoming television drama “Banat Al Aylah” (The family’s girls) with director Rasha Al Sharbatji. In the drama she plays the role of a widow named Sabah raising her three daughters alone. She struggles to provide for her children and raises them to be a doctor, a television broadcaster and a novelist.
Maha stated that she admired the role she played because it represents actual women in society, who is very strict in her method of raising her children.
The actress expressed her concern about the future of Syrian drama with regards to the rise of tension in Syria due to the outbreaks of protests demanding the resignation of the current government. She added that the current conditions force drama makers to depend on themselves with regards to funding and the possibility of a boycott due to people’s opinion across the Arab world.
According to the London based Elaph, with regards to her opinion about the drama series aired during the recent Ramadan season, Maha noted that Syrian director Rasha Sharbatji had outdone herself with the different drama series she directed, specifically “Al Wiladah min Al Khasira” (Birth from the waist). At the same time, Maha stressed that she was very disappointed with the comedy drama “Youmiat Mudeer Aam” (Days of a General Manager) starring prominent Syrian actor Ayman Zaydan. She added that no new topics were presented and the scenes could have been done in a better way.
