Same fate, different film: Did Ghada Abdel Razek say no to "bad teacher" film because of Haifa Wehbe?
Has Ghada Abdel Razek turned down a starring role in a new controversial film because of Haifa Wehbe?
Rumor has it that the Egyptian actress was to star in the film “Hajar Asas” (Bedrock), which revolves around a married teacher in her mid-thirties, who seeks sexual-fulfillment from her underage students.
She then gets pregnant by one of her students and sued by his father, which naturally leads to a three-year jail sentence where she gives birth to her baby, reported Laha Magazine.
However, Ghada denied the news, stating she was never offered the role, neither would she have ever turned it down in fear of it ending up with the same fate as Wehbe’s banned film “Halawet Rouh.”
In response to the rumors, Ghada said: “I would never turn down a film role that I’m convinced with because of fear of a similar fate to that of Haifa’s movie. I’m capable of defending my work choices as long as I’m convinced of them.”
She added: “The truth of the matter is that I’m not working on any new films for the time being. My entire time and concentration are dedicated to completing my upcoming TV drama ‘Al Sayyidah Al Oola’ (The First Lady), which is scheduled to air in Ramadan. Once I know that it’s been a success, I’ll think about my cinema career once again.”
