Despite all what is going on these days in Egypt, one of the main concerns of the media is the issue of actress Rania Youssef appearing in a swimsuit in her latest movie "Wa7ed Sa7i7", which according to many Arabic newspapers is making a huge problem on Facebook!
Is this an issue to discuss at this critical time? Unfortunately, yes!
A teaser of Rania Youssef in "Wa7d Sa7i7" shows her barely appearing in a swimsuit while swimming, a bit that's no more than 1 and a half seconds, has created a big buzz and a lots of critics see this a big No No ... as if Rania Youssef appeared nude!
Rania wasn't the first star to be offered the role in this film. Donia Ghanem, Ghada Adel and Minna Shalabi withdrew from the film and the role was later handed to Rania.
So what if Rania Youssef appears in a swimsuit? She isn't the first neither the last to appear in a swimsuit in an Egyptian movie! Many stars across the years appeared in swimsuits, bikinis and even sleepwear and acted out intimate scenes like Mervat Amin, Hind Sabri, Ghada Abd El Razek and Ilham Shahine!
