I was looking into the idea while staying away from the lengthy series.”
“As soon as director Ahmed el-Gendy suggested the idea of ‘Family Matter’ to me, we instantly had confidence and a friendship dating back for many years.
I felt comfortable with it as the story touched my heart,” he added.
Kidwany talked about the character that he portrays in the series:
Ibrahim is a chef in his late forties and works in a restaurant.
He is kind, outgoing, spontaneous and simple and lives life spontaneously.
The parallels of his character is that he avoids responsibility and he is completely satisfied with his lifestyle, and does not want change, hates surprises, until he receives the biggest surprise in his life!
He discovers that he has a daughter from his deceased wife and so tge events of the story take a major turn and his character life completely changes.
