“Al-Adl Group Productions” confirmed the validity of the news circulating about the exclusion of the actress Sarah Al-Tunisi from the series “Civil War” and contracting with the star Arwa Joudeh instead, confirming that it caused several crises.
Sources stated that Sara finished filming half of her scenes, but raised several crises with the team, and the decisive mistake came when she heated up in the discussion with the Syrian star Basil Khayyat, and asked to be equated with the star Yusra.
The source pointed out that Sarah was late for filming more than once, and the star Yusra had to wait more than 5 hours to film a scene that brings them together.
She also asked to bring her own hairdresser and make up, and the company refused her request for the presence of a specialized team affiliated with her, and in the end the discussion with the artist Basil Khayyat, who taught her a lesson in taste, and decided to exclude her from the series.
A source from within the series added that the use of Sara Al-Tunisi to join the star Yusra as a substitute for the star Haifa Wehbe, sparked a crisis with the Syndicate of Theatrical Professions because Sarah does not have a work permit and is not a member of the union. A second notification from the union to demand its replacement, especially since its role is large and influential within the workplace.
Arwa Joudeh is scheduled to re-shoot the scenes of Sarah Al-Tunisi in full, and director Sameh Abdel Aziz has set an intense schedule to complete her scenes in the fastest time, so that he can deliver the first ten episodes of the series 48 hours before the start of Ramadan, according to the rules followed in recent years.
The events of the series revolve around a framework of excitement and a drama about a civil war that is not between two countries, but between two harms for one husband, and the struggle between the heroes of the work, led by the artist Yousra, who embodies the role of a plastic surgeon and performs many plastic surgeries and has a daughter who enters into conflicts, and also faces many disputes with Her husband, and the events follow in an interesting dramatic framework.
The series stars Basil Khayat, Tamer Hagras, Roshdy Al-Shami, Khaled Anwar, Basant Siyam, Berlanti Fouad, written by Ahmed Adel, and directed by Sameh Abdel Aziz.
