After years of success she meets her old love and discovers that he had become a very successful businessman but he did not recognize her. She becomes very angry when she sees that he turned into a wealthy man especially due to the fact that he has got his capital from the house he stole from her.
Amal says that it’s a very interesting drama where good and evil had a fierce confrontation. The drama is scheduled to be complete in a few months. –
Arafeh revealed that she does not mind working in the cinema, television series, or on stage, stressing that she is different from others while acting in the sense that she is very romantic. She added that her passion will always be musical performance and singing.
In a personal interview Amal revealed that she despises men who are greedy, stupid, and cold. She added that even if she was sitting in a waiting room across such men she could not take it.
