Egyptian actress Nadia Al Jundi has recently completed shooting the final scenes of her upcoming television drama series “Mishwar Imra’a” (A Woman’s Journey), which involve her being in an accident that deforms her face. Nadia had left the scene of the accident till the end in order to focus all her attention on making the events lifelike.
According to the Qatar based daily, Al Raya, Nadia had spent several days with a makeup artist to try and make her face look as deformed as possible to show the effect of the accident.
Recently, Nadia had insisted on ignoring a demand of the Egyptian Censorship Committee to delete three scenes from “Mishwar Imra'a”, in which she appears wearing a bikini. The censorship stressed that such scenes are not fit for television and there is no way of allowing them to pass screening, especially since the drama is scheduled for release during the upcoming Muslim fasting month, Ramadan.
Director of the series Ahmad Saqr revealed that he agrees with the censorship and added that deleting the scenes will not affect the drama in any way. On her part, Nadia stressed that she will not delete the scenes, because they do not affect anyone, and she will take the responsibility of screening them. The drama “Mishwar Imra'a” is being filmed in the media production city in. -Albawaba.com
