Egyptian actress Hanan Turk was in shock when she read in tabloids that she was involved in a dispute with Egyptian actress Shireen Saif Nasr over being in a video clip with Iraqi singer Kathem El Saher. Hanan stressed that the whole matter holds no truth to it and that she was never nominated by Kathem to star in any of his music videos.
According to the London based magazine, Laha, Hanan added that she does not understand how the rumor came about, stressing that she had never throughout her life met Kathem let alone negotiated with him over starring in his music video.
It was rumored that El Saher nominated Turk to be the leading star of his upcoming music video for the song “Takoleen Al Hawa” (You Say Love), instead of Shireen, and that Hanan had expressed her joy and honor to be chosen by Kathem and agreed immediately saying that she holds such high respect for the singer and is one of his biggest fans.
It was added that Hanan stressed that she is grateful for Kathem for the timing of his offer, saying that he was able to bring her a spark of joy in a time where she is in most need, especially after the breakup between her and her husband. She added Kathem had surprised her with his offer and once she read the script she knew that she could not resist especially since the song calls for an actress and not just a pretty face, reported the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat.
The rumor also stated that no specific reason was given as to why Kathem had changed his mind suddenly about Shireen’s nomination. The singer had held extensive negotiations with Shireen and she finally agreed to appear in El Saher’s music video, which is originally written by the late prominent Lebanese poet Nizar Qabani. The video is to be filmed in Cairo under the direction of Muhsin Ahmad.
One a different note, Turk has recently been involved in serious marital problems that led her husband to throw her and their children out in the streets. Their case was taken to court, and the two are now busy with filing lawsuits against one another. The incident has caused Hanan to fall into a severe depression not knowing what led her life to turn upside down like that.
Hanan had recently decided to take time off work to be with her husband and two children and announced that she will head off on a summer vacation to Hurghada Marina, where they had been spending the past two weeks alone with the children Marina redecorating their new home. Hanan had felt that the time is just right for her vacation, especially after the hectic schedule she has had. The actress added that she is now more at peace since her latest film “Sahar Aliali” (Staying up All-night) has proven to be a huge success bringing in enormous profit. –Albawaba.com
