Egyptian actor Hani Ramzi was forced to halt and postpone the filming of his upcoming movie 'Awiz Ha'I" (I Want My Share), but not due to the US-led war on Iraq which is the case with most cinematic productions at the time, rather over an unexpected disaster that shocked him and the crew of the film. After completing two whole weeks of shooting scenes, Hani discovered that the scenes filmed had major technical problems that could not be fixed forcing them to restart everything all over.
According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, Hani said regretfully that the this disaster which amounts to a loss of over half a million Egyptian pounds, means rebuilding the sets that were destroyed after filming, buying extra films, and prolonging the time previously scheduled to complete the work.
The film finally went into action after it has been postponed for the past three years for a number of reasons. The film will mark the first directing experience for Ahmad Nader Jalal, who is son of the prominent director Nader Jalal. Young Tunisian actress Hind will co-star with Hani Ramzi and Anam Salouseh in the film. She was chosen for her role among a number of Egyptian actresses for her outstanding performance in her previous films. –Albawaba.com
