Riham Abdul Ghafour’s wedding on the Nile
Director Jamal Kassem is currently searching for the right cruiser to hold the wedding ceremony of young Egyptian actress Riham Abdul Ghafour and Majed Al Kidwani as part of the preparations for the upcoming film “Haja Kida Fil Saree” (Just Something on the go). The director has already completed shooting a number of scenes before the holidays and left the wedding scene until he finds the suitable ship.
Most of the outdoor scenes of the film have been shot in addition to a few indoor scenes, which were filmed in one of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Cairo’s apartment complexes. It has been revealed that the cast will go on a short vacation because the cameras manager is scheduled to travel to India to participate in a film festival.
Recently, Riham turned down an offer to star in the international film “Cleopatra’s Wedding”, which is a joint corporation between Egypt and the United States of America, under the direction of American director John Van. Riham was offered to play the role of a young Egyptian girl who falls in love with an American scientist, who comes to Egypt to discover the secret behind the appearance of Cleopatra in his dreams.
The scientist falls for the Egyptian girl due to her strong resemblance of Cleopatra, and through her is eager to learn about the Pharaohs civilization. On her part Riham refused to accept the role due to the fact that the film fabricates many facts about the Pharaohs civilization in addition to the refusal of the production company to delete a number of sexual scenes.
Riham added that the fact that the production company disregarded consulting an Egyptian historian to ensure that the ideas presented in the film are based on facts, is an additional reason behind her refusal saying she will not take part in any work that distorts Egyptian history and civilization.
