Ahmad Zaki as Osama Bin Laden
Once prominent Egyptian actor Ahmad Zaki completes the filming of his upcoming film “Halim”, he will begin work on his next project about the life of Osama Bin Laden leader of the Islamic Organization Al-Qaeda. The new film is being prepared in complete secrecy under the supervision of well-known journalist Imad Edin Adeeb.
The script will be written by Midhat Al Adel and direction will most probably be by Adel Adib, according to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat. On a similar note, the first film about the life of the late Egyptian legendary singer Abdul Halim Hafez has finally took effect as Ahmad Zaki, who plays the role of Abdul Halim, began shooting the first scenes. A huge press conference with the presences of thousands of journalists and stars from around the Arab world was held for the launching of the film “Halim”.
The conference was Ahmad’s first public appearance in over a year after his health began deteriorating from lung cancer. During the actor’s speech, he was unable to hold in his tears and the crowd began applauding for over 7 minutes as a gesture of respect for Ahmad. Some of the guests that were present were prominent Lebanese singer Majida Al Roumi, who will be singing the opening song of the film, and Syrian actors Jamal Sulieman and Sulaf Fougharji, who will be acting alongside Ahmad in the film.
