The family of the late Egyptian actress, the Cinderella of Arab entertainment have filed a motion in a court of law in Egypt to formally re-oepn investigation in the tragic death of Soad Hosny who died as a result from a Balcony incident in her London Apartment. Did she commit suicide as some suggest or did someone push her to hear death?


For the longest time, the rumors and circumstances of her death have been the source of many theories. The family is stating that high rank officers in the Mubarak regime stand behind Soad's death and want a serious inquiry into the matter. It appears that Ms. Hosny kept a Diary in which she kept a record of all accounts in her life.
 
Some parties in power did not like the ideas of this personal journal being made public as Soad kept it close to her. The officials who are linked to the crime according to the family are officials in the government and the State TV. The lawyer who filed the motion on behalf of the actress's family is Brlinty Sekhon who said that she has strong evidence that will surprise many.

Souad Muhammad Kamal Hosny Al Baba was born on January 26th, 1942 in Ataba, Cairo, Egypt. She was the 10th sibling of 17 brothers and sisters. Husni was known as the "Cinderella" of Arab cinema and one of the most influential actresses in the Arabic art world. She ascended to stardom in the end of the 1950s, performing in more than 83 films between 1959 and 1991. A majority of her films were shot in the 1960s and 1970s. Souad was nicknamed the "Cinderella" of Arab Cinema and was one of the most influential female icons in the Arab Acting World. She first ascended into stardom in the late 1940s with her debut in "Hassan & Naima," which was the Arabic version of Romeo and Juliet. She performed in more than 83 films between 1948 and 1991... majority of them being in the 1960s and 1970s. Some famous include "Saghira El Hob," "Khally Balek Min ZouZou," and many more! And, in many of her films she acted alongside many famous faces like Hussein Fahmy, Roshdy Abaza, and the late belly-dancing legend Taheya Karioka. Souad was also infamous for her love affairs and many marriages which always ended in failure and divorce.
