Actress Amina Khalil said that the series “al-Harsha al-Saabiea” (Seventh-Year Itch) is made with love, assuring “We were concerned, and we were taking serious steps, so that all the staff did what they had to do to get the work out in the fullest way.”
During a phone-in with TV host Amr Adib on his show “al-Hekaya” (The Story) on Monday evening, Khalil said “We were not reassured until the series proceeded optimally and achieved the required success, and the best thing is that people say this as if it was in their homes … and the series was made with love.”
“We’ve received good feedback, especially since the series is realistic, and it contains stories and anecdotes from society. We stand in the series on neutral ground and put forward men’s and women’s points of view,” she said.
Khalil added that actors in the series are geniuses with a passion for their work.
Khalil’s last series “al-Aaedoun” (The Returners) was in Ramadan 2022, co-starring Amir Karara, Mahmoud Abdel Moghny, Mahmoud al-Bazawy, written by Baher Dowidar and directed by Ahmed Nader Galal.
