Sana Younes Retires
Egyptian comedienne Sana Younes declared her retirement on the first day of Ramadan 2000, following the death of her beloved mother, reported AL Ittihad newspaper.
According to the UAE publication, the actress sent a fax to the daily stating that “art to me is a tree which bears fruit in my heart. But, I am forced to retire after the death of my mother who has walked alongside me on my path.”
She also asked that her audience forgive her for the decision and assured them about her love for acting, which will remain in her “heart and soul.”
The actress emotionally added, “my mother, who lived me throughout my life, has died and after her loss I feel that the world has ended. I am overwhelmed with a need to retire. I was strong alongside her and today I am not strong. In fact, I am weak. She was the most important thing in my life and never left me. Even throughout my travels abroad, my mother accompanied me. I am shaken by her death and I am not capable of laughing or making people laugh anymore.”
Sana also said “I will not wear the veil and my house is my mosque that I pray in and I am in no need to disappear from people but my decision to retire is not revocable.”
Sana Younes is mostly famous for her comedic theatrical work such as Suk Ala Banatak (Key Lock Your Girls) and Hala Habibati (Hello My Love) both also starring Fouad Al Muhandes. – Albawaba.com.
