Egyptian actress Sabreen had to go on a crash diet before filming her upcoming television drama series, “Al Fanar,” directed by Khaled Bahjat.
Sabreen succeeded to loose ten kilograms.
She will star alongside famous Egyptian actors Izat Al Alali, Abeer Sabri and Ahmad Rateb in the new drama.
Sabreen has denied rumors that she took off her Hijab (Muslim women’s head covering) for the new role.
Sabreen said the new drama is set in the 1940’s. She plays the role of a young woman from Bor Saeed, Egypt. Women did not usually wear Hijabs around that time in Egypt, so Sabreen wore two fake braids under her head cover to look more realistic.
