Egyptian director Khairi Bushara is undergoing his first television directing experience, after experiencing a long line of success in cinema production, in the new TV series "Mas'alit Mabda" (A Matter of Principle) staring Egyptian actress Ghada Abdul Riziq. The new drama revolves around the issue of illegal weapon smuggling, terrorism, and the increase of violence in one of Egypt's rural areas, reported the UAE based daily, Al Bayan.
The drama also tackles an incident of killing tourists by some of the locals which lead to an outbreak in the community. Khairi is to begin shooting the scenes for the drama in October after the script and cast are finalized. The story is written by Mohammad Safa Amer and is to costar Riyadh Al Khouly, Abo Baker Izzat, Mona Shalabi, and Hisham Salim.
On a different note, Ghada was in shocked when she discovered that an Egyptian newspaper had accused her of having a relationship in the past with businessman Hussam Abu El Fateh and had been involved in a similar scandal of sex films as was the case with Egyptian belly dancer Dina. Despite previous occurrences of such allegations, Ghada filed a complaint against the paper that wrote about her involvement.
Ghada admitted to have never encountered Hussam throughout her life and was never involved with him in any manner. She added that the reason behind filing a lawsuit is because this time the rumors have gone too far disgracing her name and image. She said she would not allow anyone to drag her into such a scandal and was not willing to remain silent which would mean that she was in fact involved with the businessman.
When asked about taking on any new seductive roles as her usual style, Ghada replied that she is trying to refrain from the role of the seductive and sexy woman in movies and TV series, not wanting to be limited to such parts. She added that she plans on taking different roles to prove to directors that she is capable of playing any part she is given. - Albawaba.com
