He captioned the tweet: “8 years ago in this interview, I said I hope to embody the star of embodiment & president of the republic of acting Ahmed Zaki .. Now I announce my next series #Emperor #Ahmed_Zaki #Ramadan2021.”
When Zaki’s family was asked about Mohamed Ramadan’s next project, Ahmed’s sister “Mona” said she could not agree to a job, in which the star did not ask her for any information about Ahmed Zaki.
Mona added that she and her family have many details about Ahmed’s life on a “CD” they own that carry some events of his life.
Ahmed Zaki’s sister confirmed that all family members love artist Mohamed Ramadan, especially that he supported them on many occasions, but until this moment he had not contacted any of them to talk about the series.
