A big fight erupted between prominent Egyptian actresses Sofia Al Omari and Abla Kamel after the two made a scene of exchanging curses. The incident took place on the set of the new TV drama “Aafareet Al-Sayyalah” that is currently being filmed, and is part of the script.
Sofia performs the role of an aristocratic lady and Abla is a commoner and the scene took place in a low class area where Sofia comes to Abla to make friends with her because her nephew inherits a great deal of money and Sofia hopes to have a share of it.
The new TV drama is written by Osama Anwar Okasha and costarring Nashwa Mustafa and Osama Abbas and directed by Ismael Abdul Hafiz. Sofia had returned to the screen, after a two-year absence, to star in the drama “Abiad x Abiad” (White x White). Her last appearance on TV was in the drama “Opera Aida” with the Egyptian actor Yahia Al Fakharani.
