The new film “Ghawi Hubb” for Egyptian singer Mohammad Foad seems to be going through endless obstacles making the singer lose hope in it ever being completed. First the film has been delayed several times for different reasons to be followed by the unfortunate incidents of the apology of the producer Majdi Al Huwari from being unable to produce the film and the withdrawal of director Mohammad Kamal Al Shinawi due the constant interference of Foad in all the details of the film.
The biggest blow that has hit the film and its lead actor, Mohammad Foad, is the sudden withdrawal of the leading actress Hala Shiha, who stopped coming to the filming scenes and had closed her mobile phone making her unreachable.
Hala justified her withdrawal from the film as being a result of the pulling out of the director, who wanted to make some alterations to the script making her part of more importance. Foad refused the alterations to the script in turn making Hala’s role in the film a mere secondary one, a matter the actress rejected. Hala was very eager to take part in the film and had even turned down Egyptian actor Ahmad Al Sakka’s nomination to star in his upcoming film “The Italian War”.
The movie, which is to be filmed in Cairo and Sharm El Sheikh, was to revolve mainly around Hala and Mohammad who fall in love but encounter several obstacles in their way. Mohammad is supposed to sing three different songs for Hala in the film.
