Mona Zaki and Ahmed El Sakka are two of the greatest actors Egypt’s ever witnessed, and seeing how they climbed the stairs to fame hand-in-hand is wholesome. So, let’s recap their journey together!
The “masrahiya”, or play, where Mona Zaki and Ahmed El Sakka first worked on the same set and performed on the same stage. Afroto was released in 1999 and marked the start of their career bond that lasted 20-plus years.

We love this movie as much as Ahmed El Sakka’s character loved Mona Zaki’s when he jumped off a waterfall to prove his undying love for her. If this scene doesn’t capture your attention enough to watch the movie, we don’t know what will!
Action is El Sakka’s speciality, and Mafia screams action – after all, it is named after Italian criminal activity. Hussien and Mariam gave us the perfect “I like you, but I’m on a crucial mission” scenes in the movie.
