Bad work day: $23,000 stolen from Ashraf Abdel Baqi while filming new show
Poor Egyptian comedian actor Ashraf Abdel Baqi had nothing to laugh about at work this week when $23 thousand were stolen from him.
The wads of cash were in his parked car, which was sitting outside the filming studios where he's busy filming scenes for the upcoming Ramadan TV drama "Ana Wa Baba Wa Mama" (Mum, Dad and I).
According to Elaph news, the distressed actor filed a police report after finding his front windshield smashed into pieces and the bag of money missing from his car.
Although Ashraf didn't want the incident to go public, once the authorities were informed the unfortunate incident became public knowledge!
Here's to hoping they'll catch the thief, Ashraf!
