CAIRO- 3 November – 2017: The famous Egyptian actress Hana Shiha recently joined the cast of the Egyptian movie “El Diesel.” ‘’I trust in god, I will achieve success,’’ Shiha commented on the picture she posted on instagram with the well-known Egyptian actor Mohamed Ramadan.
The movie has a notable cast along with Ramadan and Shiha, such as Fathy Abdel Wahab, Mohamed Tharwat, Shaimaa Seif, Tamer Hagrass, Yasmine Sabri among others. The movie is written by Amin Gamal and Mohamed Mehrez, and directed by Karim al-Sobky.
It is worth mentioning that Ramadan’s latest movie ‘’El-Kenz’’ (the treasure) is currently screening in Egyptian cinemas, achieving high revenues. “El-Kenz’s” storyline spans from the Pharaonic period of Egyptian history all the way to the 1970s, passing by the Abbasid and Ottoman periods. The plot revolves around corruption and how religious figures impose their authority over politics to secure high positions and power, focusing on the risks related to mixing religion with politics.
The administration of the Cairo International Film Festival, taking place at the Opera House from November 21-30, specifically asked for the participation of this film.
Directed by the veteran filmmaker Sherif Arafa, the film stars Ramadan and the cast includes Amina Khalil, Sawsan Badr, Mohy Ismail, Mohamed Saad, Hend Sabry and Ahmed Rezk.
