Amro Khaled turns down the Virgin Mary
Muslim preacher Amro Khaled declined his nomination to narrate the upcoming Egyptian film about the life of the holy Virgin Mary. Amro said that he does not intend to enter the acting world.
According to the internet website MBC.net, leading star of the film Eman Ayoub insists that Amro narrate the film and intends to do all that she can to convince him to change his mind.
On his part, Amro said that he never received any official nomination to narrate the film and all that has been published about the subject are rumors created by the press.
Eman has been pressuring the director of the film to have Amro take part in the film, but due to his constant travels the filmmakers have been unsuccessful in reaching him.
Eman added that the narrator is the backbone of the film and that is why she will not rest until she either convinces Amro or finds a replacement with his qualities.
