Well-known Egyptian actor Mohamed Ramadan sparked rumours on social media that he owns a private plane, after posting a picture on social media of himself in front of a plane marked “MR” last week, although the plane was subsequently reported to belong to a petroleum company.

Following the post on Ramadan's Instagram account on Saturday, many of his followers assumed the plane to be his. The comment section below his picture was divided between those who praised him for this acquisition and wished him success throughout his career, and others who criticised the actor’s “materialism.”

The plane in the picture belongs to petroleum company BAS, and was used, along with two others, to transport attendees to a tourism and physiotherapy conference in Sharm El-Sheikh, according to the festival’s media coordinator, Mohamed Fouad.

Ramadan’s acting career began with small roles on Egyptian television, including the series The Cinderella. He rose to fame after his performance in Youssry Nasrallah's Ehky Ya Shahrazad (“Tell Me, Shahrazad”). He has since starred in several of prominent producers Mohamed and Ahmed El Sobky's films, and received the award for Greatest Nationwide Talent three times in a row--an unprecedented achievement.
