Najla Fathi prepares for her grand return to the scenes
After regaining her physical strength once more from a heart surgery she underwent in France, Egyptian renowned actress Najla Fathi began looking through a number of scripts she has received in order to face the camera once more after an absence that has lasted for many years. The actress is keen on choosing the right offer which adds to her long line of success and is up to her standards.
According to the UAE based daily, Al Bayan, one of the offers Najla received was from Egypt’s Middle East radio station for a leading role in a drama series that would be aired during the month of Ramadan over the radio. The actress has not given her acceptance to any work so far and insists on needing more time to make the right decision for which work she wants to accept to make her grand return in.
Fathi returned home from France after undergoing medical treatment, which lasted for 25 days, after experiencing a sever heart attack. The actress had tests made to ensure that her heart is functioning properly and that she is in good health. Najla underwent the tests in a private hospital in Paris, and was accompanied by her husband and daughter. Fathi had experienced a severe heart attack that forced her to head off to Paris to see if she needed to undergo heart surgery. The actress was at first taken to a local hospital in Egypt, but doctors said that an immediate operation to change her arteries needs to be done, and so her husband sent her off to be treated.
Recently, Najlaa was in shock when she realized that circulating rumors stated that she had resigned and quit her acting career. The actress stressed that she never made any such announcements, and the reason behind her absence from the scenes is due to several personal reasons.
Najlaa stated that her first reason for being away from the scenes, is her daughter's wedding. She had been preparing and planning all the essential details with her daughter and has made a vow not to return to acting until her daughter is in her new home with her husband. Najlaa has traveled to Europe and Lebanon where she and her daughter bought all the necessities needed for the wedding and the bride's new home.
Najlaa added that her second reason is the fact that she has not received any offer that was up to her standards. She stressed that she will not just accept any role that does not add to her long line of success. Any offer she may accept has to be fully examined and studied.
It was rumored that Najlaa had officially ended her acting career on the day of her daughter's engagement, and that she had slowly been pulling out of the acting world for the past few months wanting to dedicate her time solely to her husband and daughter. It was stated that since Najlaa is now mother of the bride and is living in an emotional atmosphere she had made up her mind to stop acting and realized that the time has come for her to resign from her profession, after achieving all her dreams in the acting world and making a name for her self among some of the most prominent actors, feeling it necessary to stop in order to keep the beautiful memories she had throughout her career alive. –Albawaba.com
