Ship Of Theseus actor Aida El Kashef supports Egyptian Revolution

Promoting a film can be tiring, and stars come up with multiple reasons - from health issues to foreign travel plans - to avoid it.

However, Egyptian filmmaker-actor Aida El Kashef, who stars in Anand Gandhi's film 'Ship Of Theseus' (SOT), won't be able to market the venture for a completely unique reason: the on-going unrest in Egypt protesting the regime of president Mohammed Morsi.

When Aida was approached by Kiran Rao (who is presenting the film in India) and Anand to be part of the film's promotional events, she replied saying she won't be available. "Aida hasn't been able to make it because she is participating in the revolution currently going on in Egypt.

It's truly an inspirational story for all of us. Although it's disheartening that one of our cast members isn't with us, we're amazed at what she is doing. She sent us a long email stating why she won't be able to make it," confirmed the director.

In the film, Aida plays a visually impaired but celebrated photographer who is in the process of undergoing a cornea transplant that will restore her vision. "At the site of the protests, she is often called 'the girl with the camera'. After wrapping up a couple of schedules (of SOT) too, she had gone back to Egypt to protest against the then-president (Hosni Mubarak)," shared Anand, adding that right before the last schedule also, she had flown back to Egypt. "We couldn't even reach her. I had to contact her though a friend's Facebook page," he said.
