Private security guards to protect Nabila Obeid this Ramadan
Egyptian actress Nabila Obeid has hired private security guards to protect the advertising posters she has throughout the streets of Egypt for the Ramadan TV drama she stars in “Aunt Nour”. Nabila has taken such drastic measures after she realized that perpetrators were stealing the posters and were ruining them.
According to the London based daily, Al Quds Al Arabi, the guards will be walking through the streets where the posters are hung and will report any stolen posters or any messed with ones.
Disputes have once again broken out between Nabila, Yusra and Elham Shahin over their advertising campaigns for the different Ramadan TV drama series they star in. Conflicts began when Nabila accused Yusra and Elham of imitating her technique of advertising for her TV drama series "Al Ama Nour" (Aunt Nour) by posting large posters on every street corner in Egypt.
Nabila stressed that she had agreed with the producer of her series over making large posters and hanging them throughout streets and public places in Egypt, and that she had signed an official copyright for the idea in order not to be used by other actors. On her part Yusra revealed that such an idea can not be the sole right of any one person for the mere fact that every actor is entitled to advertise for his work in any way he feels is most suitable.
Elham denied imitating Nabila, saying that she only wished Nabila the best of luck in her first appearance on the small screen. Elham added that she is too occupied at the moment with shooting different series to be involved in disputes with other actresses. Elham did not deny the fact that she intends on advertising for her TV drama series "Nijmat Al Jamaheer" (Superstar) in the same manner as Nabila did for her series saying that it is the best way to make the public aware of what kind of works will be shown.
It was added that many other actors are looking into the idea of posting advertisements for their works in streets of Egypt saying it’s a less expensive then doing it through television advertisements and the money saved through this mean can be used to cover other costs.
Nabila has been known to have had been in a number of disputes with some of her colleagues leading her to stop all forms of communication with them. Nabila previously was involved in a clash with Yusra and Nadia Al Jundi, each for different reasons. Many tabloids have written about both incident and in some instances exaggerating what had happened. Over the time, Nabila has come to peaceful terms with Nadia and is now talking to her on a regular basis.
With regards to her relationship with Yusra, Nabila stressed that problems between them have not yet been resolved but both women make it a point to act civilly when they accidentally run into one another. Nabila revealed that she holds no grudges against Yusra and hopes one day they become friends once more.
On their part Nadia and Yusra stressed that the main reason behind their disputes with Nabila is caused by the media. Both women said they hold no form of dislike towards Nabila and hope in fact to join together as one strong team. -Al Bawaba.com
