Salah Al Saedani refuses Mubarak
Prominent Egyptian actor Salah Al Saedani has strongly refused to portray ousted Egyptian President Husni Mubarak in any television drama, film or even a radio drama. The actor stated that he cannot see himself playing the role of such a ruthless dictator who caused his people so much suffering and was a symbol of corruption.
Salah said that during the January 25 Revolution that overthrew the government of Mubarak he did not think that the protests and demonstrations would lead Mubarak to step down from power and the incident is one of a kind where the people’s voices were heard and they were able to topple the government of Mubarak and make it a thing of the past.
On a different note, Salah is scheduled to begin filming the scene of his new television drama “Hams Al Juthoor” (Whispering of Roots) with director Ismael Abd Al Hafeth. The drama is written by Yusri Al Jundi and is hoped to be aired during the Ramadan season of 2012.
