‘An Evening with the Stars’ is a special segment that has been dedicated to Salman Khan in his honor, and was organized by the Saudi Arabian Society for Culture and Arts in partnership with King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra). The segment allowed the Bollywood star to share his success story and career as a film star and a producer.

Saudi fans are really thrilled and beyond excited about his arrival, and tickets were sold out post his appearance in ‘An Evening with the stars.’ The star is expected to take on the stage at the festival, to further talk about his career and cover details about his journey as an actor and share with fans as much details as he possibly can.

And today, Oscar winning Hollywood Star Cuba Gooding Jr. will also be taking the stage, during which he will talk about his 30 years of experience as an actor.

Gooding is known for his part in “Jerry Maguire”, “A Few Good Men” and “Men of Honor.”

Tickets to both events, including the film festival as a whole, are available on Ithra’s website.

This is considered to be a huge step in the pro-active persuasion of the Vision 2030 for the Kingdom, seeing how there has been acceptance to different international artists; in order for them to promote different art forms in Saudi Arabia.

Princess Nourah bint Saad is now officially the first Saudi woman to head a sports club after successfully acquiring the Umbrian football club Spoleto.

During her speech at a press conference, the princess thanked her hosts for their hospitality and outlined her ambitious plans for the team’s future.

“Football is a family passion, and Italian football is followed all over the world. This is why I chose to invest in Umbria,” she said at a press conference.”

She further explained the aspects that made her choose this club in specific, “Spoleto is a small, amateur football organization where it is possible to work with the aim of growing and aiming for promotion,” the Princess added. “But we cannot fail to consider the value and beauty of the city of Spoleto, which is famous throughout the world.”

This purchase is the second venture for the Saudi royal into sports club ownership, as Prince Abdullah bin Musa’ad co-owns English Premier League football club Sheffield United.

We are proud to witness Saudi women achieving such remarkable milestones, what with Yasmeen Al Miamani becoming the first female commercial pilot just last month, Aseel Al Hamad making history by becoming the first-ever Saudi female F1 driver and now this!

We are filled with pride and hope that this could encourage more women to taken on challenging jobs in various fields.

Mohamed Hadid Responds to The Controversy Surrounding his Daughter

Published

It has been over a week now since the incident of Bella Hadid broke all over the internet and the controversy doesn’t seem to slow down.

Especially after last week when Dior stores across the GCC started removing Hadid’s campaigns shots from any windows or displays and shopping malls across the region.

Bella Hadid posted an apology explaining her intention but was still faced with this reaction from the GCC. Her family was silent about the ordeal until her father Mohamed Hadid broke this silence.

 

In an exclusive interview with Arabian Business, Hadid said, “Bella has been targeted by jealous individuals and trolls who wish to destroy her career. Arabs don’t do that to their own. She is a proud Arab and a proud Muslim. There are many people with their own agendas, mostly out of jealousy for her success, that are trying to bring her down. 95 percent of the backlash on social media is coming from paid trolls – just open any of these accounts and most of them are fake.”

“Do you really think she was walking around the airport and trying to find those two exact airplanes right next to each other to take an intentional picture like that?” he continued. “She can’t even walk in the mall without thousands of fans following her around. She was tired, waiting for her flight in the airline lounge and just took a picture. No one in our family would ever disrespect any Arab country, not Saudi Arabia, not the UAE and not anyone from the GCC.”

We hope things would calm down soon for Bella Hadid and we’re still waiting for a response from officials of the GCC.
