Bahraini actress Haifa Hussein has faced harsh criticism from social media users following her retirement, which raised controversy around the real reasons that led to this unexpected decision, Layalina magazine reported.
Through a video she posted online, Haifa addressed her fans as well as her critics and said: “My dear viewers … I’m sure you’ve missed me. Pardon me for not being able to appear as zealous as usual because I am more upset than you are about temporarily halting my acting career until I find the right role.”
She continued with sharp determination: “Sadly, many interpreted my decision as an attempt to create chaos and controversy, and I want to say something to those: If I did this to provoke controversy — for the sake of art — then let it be … what matters is that I appear as classy and bright as usual … this is my role.”
Haifa recently revealed that her retirement decision was not final, but she was temporarily halting her acting career until she came upon a suitable role that would encourage her to return to the field.
At the end of last year, Haifa announced on Snapchat that she would close her account on that application and shift to Instagram, which has the same features as Snapchat.
