The cast and crew of the new television drama “Embratoriate Meen” (Whose Empire) held a press conference to dish out the deets about the Ramadan drama starring Tunisian actress Hend Sabry. The episodes are almost fully filmed and ready for the holy month to commence.
According to the Middle East news portal Elaph, the plot covers the life of a woman named Amirah and a man named Sami who decide to return to live in Egypt after the January 25 Revolution of 201 after having lived abroad for nearly 20 years.
With crazy culture shock after returning to their homeland, the fam has some serious trouble trying to fit in.
Salwa Khatab, Mohammad Shaheen, Mohammad Mamdooh, Razan Jamal, Badriah Talbah, Amr Al Saeed and the child Ahmad Dahish also star in the show with guest of honor appearances by different celebs like Izzat Abu Ouf, Dhafer Al Abdeen, Hani Ramzi, Arwa Judeh, Mohammad Farash and others.
Some have questioned whether this production is a copycat of Ahmed Helmy's film “Asal Aswad” (Black Honey) that aired several years ago, but Hend assures the drama comes 100 percent from her ideas, which covers the events that took place between the January 25 Revolution and the June 30 revolution of 2013.
When you watch it this Ramadan, you can make the call yourself whether this is a TV show imitation of Ahmed Helmy's or her own production. And be sure to let us know your personal eval!
