Egyptian beauty Yousra was forced to shed at least three kilos for her role in Ramadan drama ‘Sharbat Louz’.

The already slim actress had to cut back on the snacks before the holy month had even begun so that she could fit into the dress designed for her on-screen wedding to comic actor Sameer Grahnem.

But, losing weight wasn’t the only thing Yousra had to worry about.  According to, the star was apprehensive about taking on a comedy role, and found some of the show’s more dramatic scenes challenging to shoot.

Spurred on by her desire to lighten the mood in Egypt , the star got her act together and completed filming

Do you think it’s right for actors and actresses to be forced to lose weight for a role?
