Egyptian actor Ahmed El Fishawy has shared his new strategy for his films in the next ten years. 

He stated that he will only make comedy films and will not present the action genre because the audience no longer accepts them and is tired of them.

"I will present only comedy during the next 10 years as the events taking place around us put the audience in great need of comedy, and it is clear that they are tired of the battle and action films" El Fishawy added.

In April 2023, the actor announced that he would no longer star in any TV productions and disclosed that he had settled on that resolution 10 years ago.

He pointed out that the 2013 TV series, "Bedoun Zikr Asma" (Without Mentioning Names), served as “The Final Chapter” and noted he decided to devote himself permanently to the cinema during the series' premiere.
