Talaat Zakaria:  I still stand by My Statements

Egyptian actor Talaat Zakaria says he still stands by his criticisms of the revolution in Egypt.

In his interview with, Zakaria says he won't take back his statements because he says he witnessed individuals who engaged in prostitution and drugs in Tahrir Square.

He said his statements made on TV channels were encouraged by his fear for Tahrir youth who may be affected by such things. He added he believes in the demands of the Egyptian youth, especially since he says he already addressed them in his movie 'Tabakh Al Res'.

Talaat said that Mubarak stepping down protected the country from slipping into the unknown, which would end only through more violence.

He says he does not care for the blacklist at which he is on the top of the list, among other artists who criticized the revolution. He says he cares more for rebuilding his country. He says he doesn't fear audiences' reluctance toward his works.

He praised his family's understanding of his approach because he tells the truth and still keeps his principles unlike many other artists.
