Trouble On The Set of 'Bab El Hara 5'?!
Perhaps one of the most anticipated series is the much followed fifth installment in the 'Bab El Hara' series- but it seems all is not well on the set of 'Bab El Hara'. Two actors have dropped out of the production: Sabah El Jazaery and more recently Mostafa El Khany! These two beloved characters refused to be a part of the series after heated arguments with the director Mo'men El Mala and it seems someone video recorded the argument that occurred involving El Khany better known as 'El Nims'!
It seems that he objected to the fact he was called onto the set 4 or 5 hours before he actually had to film any scenes which frustrated him especially when he tried to bring it to the attention of the production team and failed! Apparently the video shows the director reacting in an angry and unprofessional manner to El Khany pointing this out to him which led to the actor dropping out after only half his scenes had been filmed.
Apparently Sabah El Jazaery's withdrawal is also the results of an argument with the director! Nobody knows for sure what the future hold for the series: the director has made statments that El Khany will be appearing in the entire series as planned whereas some reports claim his character will die half way through the production and a new character will be introduced (read: forced) into the script to keep the original story line intact. A good director is so much more than creative vision, he needs to work with his actors especially when they are as talented as the entire case of 'Bab El Hara' undoubtedly are. It's a shame Mo'men El Mala is obviously not up to the task and we all hope the series does not suffer as a result.
