Egyptian actress Summaya Al Khashab was voted most attractive Egyptian actress in a poll held by a magazine that specializes in the cinema. The poll included over 140 actress from the early beginning of the Egyptian cinema.
Names like Shams Al Baroudi, Hind Rustom, Muna Zaki and more were all considered less attractive than Summaya.
Summaya had refused to gain weight for her role in the upcoming television drama “Raya and Iskeena,” costarring Egyptian actress Abla Kamel.
Director Jamal Abdul Hamid has begun filming at the Egyptian ‘Media Production City’ in Cairo.
The drama, scheduled to be aired during the holy month of Ramadan, when viewership is highest, is based on a true story of two sisters who murdered innocent women, and then proceeded to rob them of their processions. The story covers seventeen different murder cases, some of which actually took place.
The producers requested that Summaya gain a few kilos in order to match that of Abla, but Summaya insisted the two women will have different weights. The actress argued that the original characters she and Abla are portraying were slender.
Summaya traveled to Beirut along with her mother to buy a number of dresses and accessories for her role in the drama, but ended up buying traditional dresses from Egypt instead.
