Prominent Egyptian actress Yusra has stressed she will continue to sing and make music videos despite the strong criticism she faced. The actress revealed that she is currently holding extensive work sessions with composer Hameed Al Sha’erri to decide on a new song for her to sing and film as a music video.
According to the UAE based daily, Al Bayan, Yusra noted that the criticism she received was mainly due to her entering the music industry and not her voice or the actual songs she sang. She added that it is her right to sing or not and people should not interfere in the decisions she makes.
The first music album for Yusra had proven a lot of success among listeners especially children, whom were the main target Yusra was focusing on throughout the album. The actress revealed that due to the success she achieved she is currently working on releasing a second album and is hopeful it too will reach people’s hearts. Yusra admitted that she does not consider herself to be a professional singer, but rather she sees herself as a performer.
Right before completing the filming the scenes of her upcoming film “Kalam Fil Hub” (Love Talk), Yusra has already begun preparation for next film “Thawrit Al Nisa” (Women’s Revolution), where she plays the role of the famous journalist Muna Rajab. The film revolves around important issues that women face in today’s society especially in the Eastern cultures.
In the film, which is directed by newcomer Ramzi Imjahed, Yusra is a journalist who devotes her entire life to defending women’s rights. Yusra is hoping that her portrayal of Muna as a journalist will achieve similar success as achieved in her role as a television announcer in the drama series “Lika Ala Alhawa).
