Mamdouh Abdul Alim: I Don’t Recognize This New Generation of Comedians
Egyptian actor Mamdouh Abdul Alim enjoys a great sense of honesty, so much so that some might view it as vile!
The actor recently took it upon himself to express his honest opinion about two of Egypt’s most famous rising comedians.
In an interview with the Arab Jerusalem newspaper in London, the actor also voiced his support for former Egyptian leader Jamal Abdul Nasser and the reasons behind the success of his marriage.
Alim said that the new generation “lacks talent. I don’t really recognize that they have talent.”
“An actor aspires for rejuvenation, renewal and novelty. These actors are only interested in the movies that make money; especially comedies,” he added.
Both Hneidi and Alieddine have stuck to comedy since their first rise to fame.
Typecasting is a well-established phenomenon in Egyptian cinema -Albawaba.com.
