Why is Walad Badia series under fire?

Many people complained online saying that Syrian artist Emarat Rizk is too young to play the mother role of four Syrian artists, who are in real life much older than her.

A person wrote: “Emarat Rizk is playing the mother of Sulafa Mimar and Mahmoud Nsr, Is it an Indian film?”

Several fans online also asked the director Rasha Sharbatgy to switch between Emarat and Sulafa and ask Mimar to play the role of the mother as according to many she is more “suitable” agewise.
