KUALA LUMPUR: Popular TV-host and actress Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor had previously made waves as Warda in the hit TV series Suri Hati Mr. Popular.
But it seems like not everyone was charmed by her latest acting role as Helena in the TV drama series Red Velvet, directed by Michale Ang.
The series, which premiered on Astro Ria on Monday, recently saw some fans criticise her acting skills on social media, claiming she failed to deliver a good performance for her character who carries a carefree personality.
Some also expressed their opinion that she and her co-star Alif Satar didn’t make a good onscreen pair, compared to the strong chemistry she shared with Fattah in Suri Hari Mr. Pilot.
But others lauded her efforts and advised her to brush off the negative comments.
Neelofa however, wasn’t bothered by the remarks and urged viewers to keep watching the series as the plot and characters would only get more interesting as the story progressed.
“They’re a little too quick to judge the story without trying to understand it. Watch it til the end first before commenting."
"The series has just premiered a few episodes, there are still many more to follow,” she said in a report by Harian Metro.
Red Velvet centres on Helena, who fancies a married man, Fareeq (Hafidz Roshdi) and wants to pursue a plan to marry him, but the plan backfires.
She then meets an obnoxious baker named Izzat (Alif Satar), who she is forced to work with at a bakery. They develop an unlikely friendship and soon fall in love.
Red Velvet airs Mondays to Thursdays at 10pm, on Astro Ria (Channel 104) and Astro Ria HD (Channel 123).
