Sherif Sabri denies Ruby’s elimination
Egyptian director Sherif Sabri denied circulating rumors that Egyptian actor Ahmad Al Sakka refused Egyptian singer Ruby's participation in his latest movie “Al-hares” (The Guard). Sherif expressed his astonishment about this rumor saying that Ruby cannot act or sign any agreement without his permission according to the contract between the two of them.
Sharif stressed that no one had contacted him regarding Ruby's participation in Al Sakka's movie, and that the singer cannot agree to any work without his personal approval, reported the London based Elaph.
It was rumored that Egyptian actor Ahmad Sakka threatened to withdraw from his latest movie “Al-7ares” (The Guard) if the production company insists on giving Ruby the female leading part. The leading part was suppose to be given to Tunisian actress Hind Sabri who apologized because she is busy preparing for her Master’s degree in law.
Ahmad nominated Dalia Biheri to act beside him but he was surprised that the production company contacted Ruby to take the part and that she had already given her initial agreement to do the role.
The Egyptian National Women Council has withdrawn an advertising campaign from director Sherif Sabri after the latter insisted that Ruby will be the model for the campaign. The council said that Ruby does not represent what they are trying to promote and they did not want the pubic to think that Ruby is what the average Egyptian girl is like.
The campaign is called “Bint Masryeh” (An Egyptian Girl) and the council decided to give the campaign to another director after Sabri insisted to have Ruby to do the modeling. This caused Sabri a great loss in addition to the losses paid after the failure of Ruby's movie “Saba’ Wara'at Kotsheena” (Seven Playing Card). –Albawaba.com
