Egyptian actor Sharif Muneer was able to make a place for himself in the entertainment world and become well-known around the Arab world. Sharif has revealed the behind the scenes secrets of his latest television drama “Barah Al Dunia” (Outside this world) and his new show “Qisas Al Anbia’” (Stories of the Prophets) on an interview he held recently with the London based daily, Elaph.

The actor stated that he had increased his wages and justified the increase by saying he deserved it after the success he has achieved throughout his career. Sharif added that the director of the drama “Barah Al Dunia” did not object to his wage and if he felt that it was exaggerated he would have nominated another actor for the role.


Sharif stated that he had to increase his wage, which is the case with all his peers in the entertainment world, stressing that he cannot keep getting the same wage he had started out at the beginning of his career and that the cost of living has increased dramatically and therefore he needs to be making enough money to make ends meet.
