Helmy vs. Maki?
Every summer there is the awaited smack down between all the summer movies- of which there are always many. This year the two big movies and actors everyone's watching are from the 'new' generation: Ahmed Helmy and Ahmed Maki! And it seems experience did not trump this year and Ahmed Maky's movie has done insanely well in the box office grossing a total of more than 10million E.P (over $1.75 million) in just 2 weeks! 'La Taraga, La Tastaslam' stars Makya and the likes of Donia Sameer Ghanim and Ezat Abou Ouf and its gripping and hilarious story has grabbed the attention of the masses.
Helmy's movie 'Asal Eswed' hasn't done so bad though and is firmly holding onto 2nd place grossing nearly 22million E.P (almost $3.8 million) in 7 weeks. Who would have thought that the guy who started off as just 'the guy with the 'fro' would end up doing better than one of the biggest stars of his generation? Funnily enough as well it seems Helmy is doing better than his wife Mona Zaky who -and this is just my opinion- is more talented than he is!
