Iman Al-Assi receives threatening messages
In the same context, Iman Al-Assi revealed the impact of her role in the series “Jaafar Al-Omda” on her audience, as she received angry messages and threats because of the role of “Dalal”, which she embodied in the series during the month of Ramadan.--
Al-Assi indicated that the director, Mohamed Sami, was credited with the success of her role in the series, as he presented her in a surprising way and assigned her a pivotal role in the work.
Al-Assi added that the role of “Dalal” was a challenge for her, as she was confined to the roles of the sweet girl and the hero’s lover, and this led to her disappearance from the limelight for a while.
With regard to receiving threatening messages, Al-Assi indicated that she began receiving these messages after showing episodes 19 and 20 of the series, but the matter was dealt with later due to the public’s awareness and understanding of the nature of acting, and she added that some people began to hesitate to approach her after that.

She added that some entered into bets on the end of the series, and she jokingly explained that some lured her with money to find out the end of the series, and pointed out that even when she was ill, the doctor asked her about the end.
