Rumors are jive ‘cause Jamil Rateb is alive
Yes, Jamil Rateb might be a sickly old man with poor health that has caused delays in filming projects in the past, but he’s still at least breathing, despite the rumors that he’d past on.
The street gossip and even the media led folks to believe that his deteriorating health over the years had finally had it’s way with the actor, but Head of the Egyptian Actors Union Ashraf Abdel Ghafour stated that he personally paid a visit to Jamil to confirm that the wide spread rumors are untrue, according to Sayidaty.net.
Ashraf called on the media to not publish news unless it was validated from legitimate sources, adding that rumors dealing with people’s lives can really do harm, and it is not ethical to create such lies.
