Disputes that have lasted for years between Egyptian actresses Elham Shahin and Nadia Al Jundi over the film "Al Raghba" (Desire), have finally ended.
Egyptian actress Laila Elwi was able to end the disputes between the two actresses at the opening ceremony of the Cairo Cinema Festival.
According to the Kuwaiti daily, Al Watan, Laila had insisted that Elham and Nadia kiss and make up in front of all the stars that attended the private dinner that was held in honor of the festival.
Problems between the two actresses had been repeating themselves for the past three years when both women had leading roles in the movie “Al Raghba” (Desire).
Shahin had publicly announced on a television program that Al Jundi refuses the idea of acting with another leading actress in fear of loosing some of the spotlight. Elham on her turn has vowed that she will never accept any role alongside Nadia.
Elham stressed that despite the fact that she welcomes sharing a leading role with another actress, the case is different with Nadia. Elham added that the fact that Nadia refuses sharing a leading role makes her (Elham) disregard the idea of acting with her.
Nadia had waged a sever attack on Elham publicly on the Lebanese TV channel Future, where she was guest on one of its programs presented by Lebanese announcer Zahi Wahbi. Elham, who was outraged with Nadia's comments, decided to fire back and stated to the media that it's probable that Nadia would attack her just to attract attention since she has been without work for the past two years, in other words stressing that she has nothing better to do.
Elham noted that Al Jundi did not get five prizes for her movie "Alragbah" (Desire), stressing that the movie had participated in three festivals in which both of them won two prizes, adding that she won the most important prize which was best actress in the national festival of Egyptian cinema, the thing that made Nadia very angry and jealous.
