I was known as the actress of seduction because of the films she presented in which she appeared in obscene situations and scandalous clothes, and it came to her appearing naked in one of these films, with which the artist participated, Izzat Al-Alayli.

This movie was filmed in Kuwait, banned from showing in Egypt, and was classified as a pornographic film not suitable for viewing.
Nahed al-Sharif was criticized by the newspapers and the media with the ugliest words and accusations, so she tried to stay away from acting, and then returned some comedy films again in an attempt to improve her image, after she confirmed her deep remorse for making this film.
After her divorce from her first husband, she felt affection for him, Kamal El-Shenawy, and went to him and said: “Why is the man always the one who presents to the six ..
