It was added that Muna and Hanan went through a crucial competition that ended with Hanan’s elimination after the production company felt that she is an over exhausted actress in addition to her frail figure that makes her incapable of portraying the role of the Cinderella. Muna was fully approved for the role because her body and attitude are fit for the role and her face has a romantic essence to it. –Albawaba.com
