Quarter of million EGP for Yusra’s wardrobe
The cost of the wardrobe for Egyptian actress Yusra for her role in the television drama “Ahlam Adieh” (Ordinary Dreams), which was aired during the holy month f Ramadan exceeded quarter of a million Egyptian pounds. The actress wore 320 different outfits on average 10 for each episode, in addition to the different accessories she matched with them.
According to the Saudi based daily, Al Riyadh, the budget for the drama exceeded 320 thousand Egyptian pounds, and Yusra had contributed an additional 65 thousand pounds from her own finances. Yusra justified the exaggerated wardrobe on the fact that her character is one that needs to always be in disguise and appear in different styles.
Yusra has appeared this Ramadan season with a new style in the drama "Ahlam Adieh".
In the drama Yusra plays the role of "Nadia," an uneducated woman from an impoverished neighborhood who uses her good looks to steal from people. Yusra has historically played the roles of educated, righteous women.
The drama marked Yusra’s third cooperation with young scenarist Mohammad Ashraf. Mohammad wrote the leading role especially for Yusra, as was the case for their two previous dramas, "Malak Rouhi’ and "Lika Ala El Hawa."
The director Majdi Abu Amierieh nominated the remaining cast of the series, which includes Muna Shalabi, Khaled Saleh, Suad Nasr, Izzat Abu Ouf, Nihal Ambar, Khaled Zaki and In’am Salouseh.
