Two years after ''Umm Kulthoum'' TV series, Sabrine accused to be unfitting for the role
Despite the huge success the TV series "Umm Kulthoum" had made two years ago, renowned Egyptian singer Suad Mohammed doesn't see the retired star Sabrine to be fitting for Umm Kulthoum's role, according to the Kuwaiti daily, Al Rai Al Aam.
"Sabrine is a good actress, but when it came to 'Umm Kulthoum' series, actress Fardos Abdul Hamid succeeded in convincing the people with the role more than Sabrine did," said Mohammed. She added that Sabrine exaggerated in embodying Umm Kulthoum's anger and way of singing.
Singer Suad Mohammed, who is known for her soprano voice, will be honored in the few coming days, following a concert she would hold in the Cairo Opera House.
On another note, last week, Sabrine got divorce from her husband Yaser Abdul Lateef after a 15-year marriage. The star refused to comment on the news, but said that she is staying now with her only son Noor at her mother’s house in Cairo.
Several news circulated saying that the star gave up all her financial rights in order to quickly finish the divorce procedures.
Sabrine started a show business career at the age of five. Her relationship with her father, who was a trapeze artist with the National Circus, was similar, in many respects, to that shared by Umm Kulthoum and her father. This similarity granted the star the opportunity to successfully play the role of Umm Kalthoum in the latest TV series she acted before her retirement. – Albawaba.com
