The cast of the drama were to hold a press conference, which was organized in their honor, but to the journalists surprise none of the actors showed up causing extreme anger and disappointment.
According to the Qatar based daily, Al Raya, the journalists filed a complaint against all the cast especially the lead actors like Egyptian prominent actress Yusra, actor Ahmad Izz, Ahmad Khalil and the rest. The complaint in the form of a petition to the head of the syndicate demanding that some form of action be taken against the actors for not attending the conference and not even sending any form of apology. The journalists stressed that the actors have disrespected them and they should in turn submit an apology explaining why they did not attend.
