Yusra cries tears of blood
Prominent Egyptian actress Yusra was distraught after her latest film "Dam Khazal" (Deer’s Blood) failed at the box office during the Muslim holiday Eid Al Adha.
Yusra claims numerous scenes were deleted from the film, weakening the storyline.
Writer and producer, Waheed Hamed, was also shocked to learn that the film was only being screened in the morning, and was missing all together from several major movie theaters.
Director Mohammad Yasseen has denied previous allegations that a fight broke out between Yusra and Muna Zaki on the set of the film. Circulating rumors claimed that the dispute almost led one of the actors to withdrawal from the film, and that prominent Egyptian actor Nour El Sharif had to intervene to restore the peace.
Yasseen was shocked by the rumor, and questioned how people can fabricate such lies and publish them without validation. However, Yasseen later revealed that there was a minor dispute.
Yasseen stated that Muna, who likes to work in complete silence, was bothered by Yusra’s friends who came to watch her while filming, and were cheering every time she completed a scene.
Despite the incident, the director characterized the relationship between Yusra and Muna as one based on mutual respect.
The cast for the film also includes Amro Wakid, Salah Abdul Allah, Mahmoud Abdul Almughni, and Abdul Aziz Makhyoun.
