Prominent Egyptian actress Elham Shaheen is outraged at remarks made by a television host on one of the satellite channels insinuating that she is jealous of Egyptian actress Laila Elwi, who is of the same generation. The TV host had stated that Elham was angry at the organizing committee of the recent Cairo Film Festival for honoring Laila and not her.
The TV host also said that Elham’s jealousy led her to not attend the festival. These remarks made Elham very angry and stated that such remarks are ridiculous. Elham added that it is beneath her to comment on the remarks made and revealed that the reason behind her not attending the festival is the fact that she had accompanied her brother for a scheduled surgery in Paris.
