Prominent Egyptian actor Hussein Fahmi will begin filming the first scenes of his upcoming television drama “Muwatin Bi Rutbit Wazeer” (A Citizen with the Rank of a Minister), written by Yasr Al Siawi and directed by Adel Al Asser.
According to the Qatar based daily, Al Raya, the story of the drama revolves around the life of a thinker and writer who works to fight corruption.
Circumstances lead the writer to become a Minister and he begins his struggle, trying to preserve his innate character while adopting that of a politician.
Fahmi has turned down an offer for one million Egyptian pounds to star in a new commercial for a tobacco company. The actor explained that he refuses to take part in such commercials, stressing that he would never encourage smoking, or promote such a lethal habit.
Recently, Hussein requested that an Egyptian production company try and reach an agreement with Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram to take the leading role in his upcoming film. Hussein asserted that she is best suited for the role, and that his nomination of Nancy is not merely due to her looks, but her proven acting abilities demonstrated in her music videos.
