Prominent Egyptian actress Yusra has given her final approval to star in the new television drama series “Imra’a Adieh” (An Ordinary Woman), which will mark her third cooperation with young scenarist Mohammad Ashraf.
Yusra will begin shooting the first scenes of the drama in July to have it ready for screening during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Mohammad wrote the leading role especially for Yusra, as was the case for their two previous dramas, “Malak Rouhi’ and “Lika Ala El Hawa.”
Yusra stated that she and the remaining cast and crew have agreed to not give any details about the drama, in order to avoid copyright infringements on the screenplay.
On another note, director Mohammad Yasseen has denied recent allegations that a fight broke out between actresses Yusra and Muna Zaki on the set of their upcoming film “Dam Ghazal” (Deer’s Blood). Circulating rumors claim that the dispute almost led one of the actresses to withdrawal from the film and that prominent Egyptian actor Nour El Sharif, had to intervene to restore the peace.
Yasseen was shocked by the rumor, and questioned how people can fabricate such lies and publish them without validation. However, Yasseen later revealed that there was a minor dispute between the actresses.
Yasseen stated that Muna, who likes to work in complete silence, was bothered by Yusra’s friends who came to watch her while filming, and were cheering every time she completed a scene. Nour had appeared on the set that day to film a scene, Yasseen explained.
Despite the incident, the director characterized the relationship between Yusra and Muna as one based on mutual respect. The cast for the upcoming film includes Yusra, Muna, Nour, Amro Wakid, Salah Abdul Allah, Mahmoud Abdul Almughni, and Abdul Aziz Makhyoun.
