Firas had held numerous meetings with Yousif Othman, head of the Media City Production, and decided that the production of the drama be a joint project between Egypt and Syria, according to the UAE based Al Bayan.
Previously, prominent Egyptian actor Nour Al Sharif was nominated to portray the life of Mahmoud, but Nour had declined his nomination due to his preoccupation with other projects.
