Veteran Egyptian actress Yousra will no longer participate in the Ramadan 2024 drama marathon.
She was initially set to participate in the marathon with a series produced by the El Adl Group and scripted by Medhat El Adl and Amin Gamal.
The project witnesses Yousra returning to the tragic genre after participating in the past drama marathons with comedy TV shows “1000 Hamdallah Ala Al Salama” (2023) and “Ahlam Saeeda” (2022).
In a recent interview, producer Gamal El Adl affirmed that Yousra preferred not to star in any TV project and desired to rest this year.
“I spoke to her more than once to participate in the upcoming Ramadan marathon, but she preferred to rest," he said.
"She is the owner of the company, not the daughter of the company, and I respected her desire.”
Yousra, born on March 10, 1955, is an actress, a singer, a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, and a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The iconic cinematic legend is one of the most recognizable names in the region and has been gracing the silver screen for more than 50 years.
Since the 1970s, Yousra has starred in some of the most important films in the history of Egyptian cinema, appearing in over 100 films.
Her roles in films and TV series continue to influence and inspire generations to this day.
