Big news for Haifa Wehbe! Her "Halawet Rouh" might come back for another round in Egyptian cinemas!
Abdel Satar Fathi, head of the viewing committee at the Egyptian Censorship Committee, revealed that the crisis faced by the film "Halawet Rouh" starring Lebanese diva Haifa Wehbe will soon be resolved, and the film will no longer be banned from viewing in Egypt.
According to Sayidaty.net, Abdel Satar said he cannot give further deets at the moment, but full disclosure in coming in the next two or three days as the committee makes surprising decisions.
The film "Halawet Rouh" was recently banned from screening in Egypt by a decision made by the Egyptian Prime Minister Ibrahim Milhim on the basis that it contained too many inappropriate scenes unfit for the average movie goers. Ibrahim felt the film included intimate scenes that are considered an insult to Egyptian ethics and ways of life, especially since it featured a young boy as one of the leading actors performing scenes unfit for his age.
The film stars Haifa Wehbe and Egyptian actors Basem Samra, Salah Abdullah, Mohammad Lutfi and is directed by Sameh Abdel Aziz.
