The seductress Egyptian actress, Ola Ghanim, who once said she would leave to the United States should the Islamists come to power, now says she will stay on in the country, the Egypt-based website, Nukudy.com, reported.
Ghanim who posed in a bikini in one her movies, said she is not concerned about the Islamists gaining power and will continue with her acting career like she always has.
The website also reported, Ahmed Hilmi, an Egyptian star and comedian who loved by many in the Arab world, as saying that he will not allow any political bloc to limit his freedoms and rejected that notion in its entirety.
“I am waiting for the next president to bring an innovative development program for the country and to envisage an exit from the crisis with a succinct plan,” Hilmi said. “The current political candidates … keep on talking about raising salaries and spurring youth employment but without offering any real program to reach such goal.”
Muna Zaki, known for her doe-like features and roles in romantic comedies, denies ever having attacked Islamists, adding that she is “not scared from them,” the website reported.
She said she is not interested in publicizing who she voted for, saying it is a personal matter and that she wishes the best for Egypt.
As for the sultry belly dancer known as Lucy, who said that she can leave Egypt to teach belly dancing abroad, she has said does not want to leave her country.
Earlier she had said that she was willing to dance for the Islamists, and that she does not consider dancing as “haram” or “forbidden” in Islam.
She wished Egypt could become a Muslim country that respects freedoms like Turkey.
