Ahmed Helmy holds out on “Made in China” ‘til Arabs Got Talent ends
Egyptian comedian actor Ahmed Helmy, known as the Prince, has decided to postpone filming the scenes for his new film "Suni' Fil Seen" (Made in China) until the third season of Arabs Got Talent comes to an end, and he can relinquish his judging duties.
According to the Middle East news portal Elaph, Helmy reached an agreement with director of the film Amro Salama to begin filming the scenes in December right after the show ends because it is difficult for him to dedicate his time and effort to the film at a time when he is required to travel on a weekly basis to Beirut to take part in the live episodes of AGT.
Salama was actually relieved and agreed to Ahmed's request since he wanted more time to finish up filming his new film "La Mu'akhatha" (Pardon Me) with Syrian actress Kinda Alloush before beginning the project with Helmy anyway. It's a win win since neither of them will now feel the tension of dividing their time.
The last film for Ahmed was "Ala Jithati" (Over My Dead Body), which due to internet piracy did not achieve the expected profit, despite its success, so here’s to hoping those internet poachers don’t ruin it for him next time around.
