Ruby refuses to think twice about rumors
Egyptian latest sensation, Ruby has been the center of media interest since she started her singing career, and has now topped everything with her first leading part in the new movie “Saba3 Wara'at Kotchina” (Seven Playing Cards). Ruby revealed that she does not listen to everything said about her, and all what concerns her is her fans and their reactions towards her work.
According to the London based daily, Al Quds Al Arabi, with regards to her seductive performance Ruby commented that a person should not put that manner away, but the best description for her works is an "audiovisual" language. She added that there are many singers who perform in the same way she does, but do not get the amount of harsh criticism she witnesses.
Ruby noted that the fierce attack waged against her was provoked because of a hidden war between big names in the industry and she was only a mean to continue this war. Her opinion about the recent addition to seductive dancer Tunisian singer/dancer Najla, Ruby said that her opinion about anyone is not important, adding that no singer imitates another and everyone gives his art and the audience is the judge in this competition.
Ruby concluded that she does not imitate the international singer Shakira, saying that the fans are very intelligent and can differentiate between who introduces real art or just mere seduction.
On a different note, director Sherif Sabri revealed that Ruby’s first public appearance might be on Rotana satellite music channel. Famous announcer Hala Sarhan in one of her shows, either “Gana el-hawa or Hala Show”, will present ruby.
Sabri had criticized all critics who wrote that his latest movie was not successful and did not achieve important profits, considering this as part of the attack waged on him and Ruby. Sherif had previously allowed the stars of his movies to talk to the media after being prohibited for 12 months while filming the movie.
Contrary to all expectations, Ruby's first film debut proved to be a big failure ranking in last place among all summer films. The film, which is directed by Sharif, hardly made any profits unlike the two films "Tito", by Ahmad Al Saqqa, which ranked in the number one spot and "Khalti Faranca" for Muna Zaki ranking in second place.
Ruby's new movie [Saba3 Wara'at Kotcheena] (Seven Playing Cards) was screened without any special screening to critics and media. Cinema houses owners revealed that the film did not make its expected profits with six screening in one cinema reached only 1450 EGP and four screening in another reached only 900 EGP. It was added that only teenage males were witnessed going to see the film, due to their infatuation with Ruby, who is considered to be one of the most seductive singers.
Some audience revealed that after they watched the film, they regretted buying the tickets stressing it was a total waste of time. It was stated that the film held no significant meaning and was simply a silly one that is not worth watching. –Albawaba.com
