And he works in principle with his gossip more than ten years and he succeeded with him and may God protect him from the expansion of the violin, and he is not against those who do the opposite and he does not see himself more respectful than anyone. “
Muhammad Anwar added: “Suddenly, all people saw him as a reactionary, backward, and not an artist.

While here Zahed via special short stories in her account on Instagram A picture of Youssef El-Sharif and I wrote: “Who are the most respected people I worked with?”
With the awareness of freedom of opinion and who always defend all who anger our Lord, they attack the man who wants to please our Lord in his work and refuses to offer anything that offends modesty in his works.
Originally, his opinion was not blown on others, he only chose a comfortable and successful path for him.
O Jadaan, the soul that gets out of you can never come back to you.

In the other camp The director Magdy Ahmed Ali, who criticized Youssef El-Sharif’s statements, said: “I couldn’t speak on the subject, but I was provoked by talking about freedom of opinion and expression… an expression, uh, you are an actor… part of an artistic work that has rules and foundations, the most important of which is that the acting is not a reality but rather a case of influencing scenes “.
He added in his speech: “This is how the speech remained. The words of the sheikhs who said that the cinematic passport is permissible according to Islamic law. After that, you are an actor subject to the conditions of the artwork. The original work … What does all this have to do with freedom of opinion. “
He asked at the end of his speech: “Should a self-respecting director replace a scene of a father embracing his absent daughter … because the father (the actor) decided that his daughter (the actress) is not his daughter in reality, or that this is his opinion of the art … What is this nonsense .. I I don’t believe it, I’m discussing it.
Producer Mohamed Al-Adl also expressed his dissatisfaction with the statements of the star Youssef Al-Sharif, about the filming of scenes in the cinema, where he wrote through his account on Facebook: “We have finished the application of clean cinema … and we have started to implement the non-contact phase.”
While critic Tariq Al-Shennawi said that Youssef Al-Sharif every year used to download a post which means, “Do not look at my series and the spirit of praying, if you see that you are doing something against prayer, you don’t want to do it, and if your artistic work is against prayer, you don’t work.”
He continued, “My view is that he shrouded a performance of an actor who lacked a lot … so that when he made a movie, he did not succeed.”
The artist Youssef Al-Sharif had said during the evening program dmc “Ten years ago I put these restrictions in my work and stipulated non-contact. Initially, the agreement was verbal, but that subjected me to some objections during filming, which prompted me to make this agreement written in the work contract, and I took this principle after the movie (it is chaos), And I remember that one of the great directors had shown on a movie and after reading it, I objected to the hot scenes in the movie, so the director and one of the critics responded (and this work did not work), and I actually thought about retiring, but the generosity of God was able to present many works with this principle.
