According to the
internet website MBC.net, Zizi said that wearing a ‘hijab’ is a matter between

‘hijab’ due to medical reasons.
“I do not fear
negative criticism for taking off my ‘hijab’,” said Zizi, and when she made the
decision to wear it she was fully convinced, and the same applied when she
Zizi denied that her
return to the acting world is due to financial reasons and that her love of
acting is the only motive for her return.
