Prominent Egyptian actor Hussein Fahmi is extremely busy these days taking part in two different works at the same for the small screen. The actor is shooting scenes for the upcoming drama series “Ashab Al Makam Al Rafeeh” (VIPs) in which he plays the role of a very successful and rich businessman.
The businessman falls into several disputes with his brothers, who are greedy to take a share of his wealth at no cost. The second drama he is shooting scenes for is “Ya Ward Meen Yeshtareek” playing the role of a successful lawyer alongside Egyptian prominent actress Samira Ahmad. In the series the lawyer demands that his wife leaves her government job in one of the ministries and stay home to take care of him and his family.
Hussein revealed that he had turned down numerous offers to star in films for the big screen due to the fact that he felt these two roles in the television dramas could not be passed up. He added that they will add much value to his career and is hopeful they will find a lot of success among viewers.
Fahmi revealed the real routs of disputes with some of his colleagues and the events that led to them. Recently, Fahmi had said that Egyptian comedian-actor Adel Imam is a local ambassador for the UN, and then took it back stressing that the matter was a misunderstanding.
Six years ago, Hussein had received a letter form the secretary general of the United Nations, Kofi Anan, telling him that he was chosen to be the UN’s only regional ambassador. So when Adel was chosen he assumed that he was merely a local representative, but as soon as he found out the truth he immediately called Adel and cleared the matter.
With regards to his dispute with Egyptian actress Nabila Obeid, Hussein revealed that he had not called the actress to clear the dispute between them because she did not respect his history as a prominent actor and said that she is Egypt's best actress and put his name in an inappropriate way in the ads of the movie “Asaees wara”. Hussein said that he decided never to work with Nabila ever again nor will he consider her as a friend.
Hussein denied having disputes with renowned actress Faten Hamama and that the matter was basically Faten’s refusal to have him act as her husband in the drama “Awrak al Ward” on the basis that it will not work. Samiha Ayoub was mad at Hussein because he was chosen to be the president of Cairo Movie Festival after the death of her husband Saad Wahbeh. Hussein believes that she was expecting to be chosen as the president after her husband and that’s why she stopped talking to him. -Albawaba.com
