Emam grew up in Sayyed Zeinab, Cairo, Egypt, along with his two siblings. He attended Cairo University, obtaining his bachelor’s degree in agriculture. While at college, he became involved in its theatre productions, and went on to join a television troupe in the early ’60s, landing roles in television plays of the Al Hakin Theater, such as “Ana wa Howa wa Heya” (“He, She and I”) and “Al Nassabin” (“The Swindlers”). Appearing in the acclaimed ’70s plays like “Madrassat Al Mashaghbeen” (“Mischief at School”) and “Shahid Mashafsh Hagga” (“The Witness Didn’t See Anything”) paved Emam’s way to recognition, earning him a decent net worth.

His foray onto the big screen came in the late ’70s, appearing in films like “Ahlam Al fata Al ta2r” (“Dreams Of The Fugitive Boy”) and “Ihna Bitua’ al-Autobis” (We’re from the Bus). Numerous other film roles followed, and Emam established himself as a dominant force in the Egyptian film industry, which greatly contributed to his wealth.

Emam has starred in a number of of Egypt’s most successful and most popular films, such as the 1992 comedy “El Erhab Wal Kabab” (“Terrorism and Kebab”) and the 1994 controversial film “Al-Erhabi” (“The Terrorist), both of which criticize the government’s corruption, religious fanaticism, extremists and terrorism. In 2006 he starred in “Emaret Yaqubian” (“The Yacoubian Building”), an adaptation of the same-titled acclaimed novel by Alaa Al-Aswany, which became the highest-budgeted film in Egyptian film industry. Being involved in such major projects maintained Emam’s stardom and brought him an impressive net worth.

Most of his films deal with the subject of fighting against fanaticism and extremism and advocating the rights of minorities who are victims of injustice and poverty. This has made him a lovable and important figure, as well as a symbol for those promoting tolerance and human rights in Egypt and the Arabic-speaking countries. However, these political roles which criticize the relationship between rulers and their people have frequently put the actor in a critical position, such as when he was convicted by the Egyptian court for defamation of Islam in the films “Al Irhabi” (The Terrorist) and “Al Zaeem” (The Leader) in 2012; he eventually won his appeal against the conviction.

Aside from these controversial films, Emam has also had a number of comedic roles which have often involved slapstick and farce.

Emam has now appeared in more than 100 movies, generally receiving critical appraisals and which have established an expansive fan base. The triumph of his success has enabled him to reach the stardom and to amass a significant fortune. Emam is one of the highest paid actors in Egypt.

When it comes to his personal life, Emam is married to Hala Al Shalaqani, with whom he has three children. The actor is a devoted philanthropist, and serves as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR. As such, he has provided much help to the organization in increasing public awareness and support for refugees.
