Ghada’s political views place television drama ‘Samarah’ in jeopardy
Circulating rumors claim that Dubai television, which has signed a contract to buy the upcoming television drama “Samarah” starring Egyptian actress Ghada Abd Al Razik, intends on breaking the contract due to an increasing number of fans who vow to boycott Ghada over her political support for former Egyptian president Husni Mubarak.
Ghada announced publicly that she is against the revolution and is pro-Mubarak, since protests erupted across Egypt 25 January. Ghada lamented Egypt’s loss when Mubarak stepped down from his presidency.
Sources claim that Ghada and her fiancé even separated over their political differences.
Producer of the drama, Mohammad Shabaan, is negotiating with officials from Dubai television to keep the contract, fearing their decision will influence other channels to break their contracts. Until this moment the producer of the drama has not set a date to resume filming the remaining scenes of the drama, preferring to wait until conditions are stable in Egypt.
A group of protestors have formed a committee to track down anti-revolutionists and to boycott their work. Ghada is at the top of the list, followed by Egyptian singer Tamer Husni, despite his announcement that he supports the protesters.
