Young Egyptian actor Hannan Turk announced that she will undoubtedly continue her acting career, asserting that she is committed to a number of different projects and presently under contract.
Wearing a Hijab, an Islamic headdress, has not protected Hannan from the tabloids. The latest rumor circulating about the star is that she is considering quitting her acting career and dedicating herself solely to worshiping God.
Hannan is preparing for the role of Wafa Idrees, a Palestinian martyr who conducted a suicide bombing in Israel, in a new film that tells her life story.
According the London based daily, Al Quds Al Arabi, Hannan revealed that it has been her life long life dream to portray such a strong person who sacrificed her life for the love of her country. She plans to fully dedicate herself to the role.
Other rumors claim that Hannan was forced to remove her Hijab in order to shoot the remaining scenes of her upcoming film.
Hannan said she is not concerned with the rumors surrounding her Hijab, asserting that there is nothing that would make her remove it in public.
Despite the fact that many consider Hannan to be of strong character and to be a proponent of personal freedom, critics think her new appearance in a Hijab may be an effort to influence the movie making industry by coloring it with Islamic principals.
