Egyptian actress Mina Fadali refused entering the Egyptian television
studios after arriving to film an episode for the program “Ah Ya Lail” (Oh the
nights) after security guards refused to permit a male friend accompanying her
to enter. The security guards refused to allow Mina’s friend due to the fact
that he did not have a permit to enter the premises.

Mina tried to convince the security that her friend will
only walk her to the studio where the episode will be film then leave, but to
no avail. As a result, Mina refused to enter the building of the station and
got into her car and left the scene all together. Producer of the show Mina was
to film an episode for tried to call Mina on her phone to convince her return
and notify her that a permit was obtained for her friend, but she refused to
answer all calls.
Mina’s actions were considered unacceptable by the makers of
the programs, especially since she did not give anyone prior notice that she
will be bringing a friend to the filming locations. The episode for the program
has been cancelled.
On a different note, Mina is preparing to begin rehearsals
for the new play titled “The Dictator” that will be showing during the coming
Muslim holiday Eid Al Adha at the Al Salam theater in Cairo.
