Muna added that many young actresses are in fact jealous of the success she has accomplished in her acting career and how she and a few others were always in demand. She assured that her enemies in the entertainment world had leaked the rumor of her pregnancy to the press and the media unfortunately did not take the time to verify the news from her.
Rumors had it that Muna had announced she will devote all of her time to her upcoming film "Al Ishiq Wal Hawa" (Love and Romance), a fated love story set to the backdrop of a romantic musical score, to be screened this summer season.
And upon completing the film she will not be accepting any new roles in order to dedicate herself to her daughter and prepare for the arrival of her second child, Muna revealed.
It was added that Muna stated it has been an eventful year that began with her performing the religious pilgrimage, Hajj, with her husband actor Ahmad Hilmi, and will end with the birth of her second child.
“Love and Romance” also stars Egyptian actors Ahmad Al Sakka, Muna Shalabi and Khaled Saleh.
Directed by Kamelah Abu Thikri, the film revolves around a pianist and successful business man who fall in love but are separated for along period of time by circumstances beyond their control, and eventually reunited.
American director John Hayman has nominated Muna for a leading role in the upcoming film "Nefertiti", written by Egyptian archeological Ahmad Otham who resides in England.
The events of the film revolve around the time of Nefertiti’s reign over Egypt and after the death of her husband the Pharaoh Akhnaton. The film has faced criticism because the events are depicted according to the historical viewpoint of Otham, whose thesis "Mouses and Akhnaton," argued that Akhnaton is the holy prophet Moses, reported the Egyptian daily Al Akhbar.
