Egyptian artist Mohamed Ramadan sparked controversy on social media, after he announced the presentation of a new movie called “Ahmose” in 2023.
Ramadan published a video clip by Zahi Hawass, an Egyptian archaeologist, in which he says that the most suitable figure to present Ahmose is the artist Mohamed Ramadan.
Ramadan commented on the video, saying: “A testimony that I am proud of from the Egyptian archaeologist and former Minister of State for Antiquities, Zahi Hawass, and with your promise, God willing, we will make an international cinematic film worthy of our great history Ahmose 2023.”
On the other hand, the United Company for Media Services decided to stop filming the series “The King”, and to form an urgent committee that includes a group of specialists in history, archeology and sociology, in order to watch the series, review the entire scenario, and express an objective and professional opinion, even if this results in not showing it in Next Ramadan.
The series “The King” is based on the novel “Good Struggle” by the international writer Naguib Mahfouz, and starring Amr Youssef, Saba Mubarak, Reem Mostafa and Majed Al-Masry.
