The estate of late Egyptian diva Soad Husni, known as Egypt's Cinderella, has warned Egyptian actor Muna Zaki and producers of the television drama "Cinderella," which tells the story of the Soad's life, to remove inaccuracies from the script.


Soad’s family claims certain facts are misleading, and even insulting to Soad and her family.


In addition, Egyptian producer Jamal Al Adel filed a lawsuit against the drama’s production company ‘Tareq Nour,’ claiming that he had reached an official agreement with the heirs of Soad’s estate to create a drama about her, and had even paid them three million Egyptian pounds in advance.


Filming will last for three months between Cairo and London, and the television channel that will air the drama has not been revealed.  The drama is directed by Samir Seif.


Most of the cast for the drama, has been chosen, and will include Midhat Saleh, Tamer Habib, Sami Maghawri, Ghada Rajab, and Sherrie Adel.

The drama, written by Atef Bishai, will be screened during the holy month of Ramadan.
On a different note, Zaki has denied circulating rumors that she is expecting a second child. The actor stressed that the rumor was created by jealous individuals who wanted to place obstacles in her career path to make way for other actors.
