Ahmed Al Jasmi, Emirati actor, who has been sparing no efforts in enriching the Emirati’s television programmes with his talented performance, highlighted the role of comic art in addressing issues that meet audience taste through displaying meaningful messages dedicated to all segments of the society.

Explaining the difficulties of creating a comic scene in the drama, Al Jasmi pointed out to the challenges he has experienced while trying to create a comic scene compared to a sad scene.

“The works inspired by the reality of societies displaying societal issues have played a key role in attracting audience attention," he added.

Taking this session forward, Shaima Saif, the most broadly defined actress among the new generation, said, “The rapid development has forced actors and actress to keep abreast with its changes by avoiding repeating themselves in order to keep registering further achievements in the arts field."
