During her latest visit to Lebanon to record an episode for the popular program “Li Man Yajru’ Fakat” (For Those Who Dare Only), prominent Egyptian actress Elham Shahin made it a point to visit one of Lebanon’s most famous plastic surgeons. The actress’s visit was not merely a consultation, but rather she wanted to have some minor alterations done to improve and enhance her looks.
According to the London based daily, Dar Al Hayat, Elham stressed that it is essential for every female actress or singer to have some form of plastic surgeries when it is called for, and that it is essential if she wanted to attract producers and directors. The actress did note that she is against actresses who go over board with plastic surgeries and feels that the many female artists are beginning to look like one another loosing their distinctiveness.
On a different note, Shahin has revealed that she enjoys acting alongside children, even though not many of her dramas include them. The actress stressed that she loves children but never dreamt of being a mother because she does not feel she is up to the responsibility of raising them.
The actress added that her main concentration in life is her acting career and she does not have the time to become a mother nor ever wanted to be. Elham has notified officials at the Egyptian Broadcasting Company that she will not abide by their new salary scale and will not accept less than 3 million Egyptian pounds for acting in a television drama. Elham stressed that she deserves such a high wage because of her great achievements in the acting world.
Elham also revealed that she has turned down her nomination to act in the upcoming film "Amarit Ya’qoubain" starring prominent Egyptian actor Adel Imam along with a number of prominent actors and actresses. Elham stressed that the role she was offered does not suit her at all and that she is not convinced with it. Elham added that if the role is rewritten to give her more exposure in the film she may reconsider her decision. The actress noted that her being a prominent star forbids her from accepting such minor roles.
