The contract states that the actress will receive a wage of three million Egyptian pounds for her role.
Nabila stated that she is not willing to accept a wage less than the one stated and had added a number of other conditions in the contract to her advantage.
A director for the drama is not yet chosen and the remaining cast are currently being selected.
Recently, Nabila threw a raging party to celebrate her birthday after returning from the United States. The fest was also an effort to disprove the recent rumors of her death.
Rumors claimed that her trip was due to a sudden deterioration of her health. Friends close to Nabila revealed that the death rumors stemmed from medical tests she underwent while in the US, asserting that she is in perfect health.
Nabila was touched by the concern of her fans over the rumor.
Nabila, still alive, is currently working on a new play directed by Samir Al Asfouri, and based on an international novel.
