Yusra denies portraying Dr. Hala Sarhan
Egyptian actress Yusra has denied that her role in the Ramadan television drama series "Lika Ala Al Hawa" (Lika on Air) portryas the life of Egyptian television announcer Dr. Hala Sarhan. Yusra revealed that she learned a lot from Hala as an announcer to be able to play her role in the drama, but the series is not about Hala.
Yusra stressed that her character in the drama resembles that of Hala in real life but only in the sense that she is a very successful television announcer and hosts very popular shows that are very popular among viewers.
The drama revolves around the life of a successful talk show host who is willing to go to extremes to fight for what is right even if it means loosing everything she has. As a result she is faced with many obstacles by corrupted people around her starting with her husband, who she discovers is cheating on her and is involved with a very corrupt businessman.
On a different note, many film projects have stopped with the beginning of Ramadan because most actors and actress are extremely busy finishing final scenes of their television drama series for the holy month of Ramadan, in addition to the fact that continuing work during the holy month is not possible. The first film to stop was Yusra's movie [Kalam Fil Hob] (Love Talk) directed by Ali Idris. Yusra apologized to the producers and told them that she is currently busy with her Ramadan Drama [Liqa' Ala Al-Hawa'], and had found it very difficult to combine between the two works so she took the decision to stop working on the movie.
Yusra promised the producer that she will give all her time to the movie after the end of Eid al-fitr holiday so the movie can be ready to show on Eid Al-Adha holiday.
The film “Love Talk” had already been postponed numerous times in the past four years due to the fact that Yusra was too busy with other works. The story of “Love Talk” revolves around a waitress in a restaurant who goes through different situations and relationships with various kinds of men. The script is written by Zeinab Aziz and will be directed by Ali Idris. Yusra’s role in the film is one she has never played before, an experience the actress looks forward to. –Albawaba.com
