Karim Abdel Aziz to start shooting ‘Al Zebaq’ part 2

CAIRO – 19 November 2017: Famous Egyptian actor Karim Abdel Aziz will start shooting part two of the film series “Al Zebaq” (The Mercury) in December.
“Al Zebaq” part one was screened last Ramadan. “The soap opera aims to increase Egyptian youth awareness as well as elevate their patriotic feeling,” announced renowned Egyptian actor Sherif Mounir previously during his interview on the “El Gawla el Fania” (The Artistic Tour) program that was screened July 16 on ON TV. Mounir co-stars with Abdel Aziz in the film.
“Al Zebaq” part two will focus on the intelligence side more than the social side. The social side was more prevalent in part one. “The script writer, while writing part one’s script, discovered that the series cannot be executed in one part, so he decided to focus more on the social side in part one, while stressing more on the intelligence side in part two,’’ Mounir explained.
The incidents that take place “Al Zebaq” series occurred in the period from 1998 to 2003. The soap opera portrays a true story taken from the files of the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate.
“Al Zebaq” revolves around a young Egyptian man named Omar, performed by Abdel Aziz, who is working as a surveillance camera technician.
The Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate decided to levy Omar through its officer Khaled, performed by Mounir, planting him in Europe to discover Israeli Mossad intelligence elements there and in Egypt.
