Prominent Egyptian comedian actor Adel Imam placed prominent
Egyptian actress Yusra in a very embarrassing situation when he refused to
shake her hand during the funeral ceremony of Egyptian writer Ahmad Bahjat. What
made the incident more embarrassing is the presence of the media, which came to
cover the event.

Many people questioned Adel’s actions despite the fact that
the two are known to be good friends and always accompany each other to such
Some interpreted Adel’s actions as a result of a recent
dispute that broke out between them after Adel stated that he refuses to have
his daughter to be like other female actresses who present provocative and
intimate scenes in films.
Adel’s statements led Yusra to attack him, especially since
the two had acted in a number of intimate scenes together in different films. These
scenes were always the talk of fans when the subject of Adel and Yusra arose.
The funeral ceremony was held in Al Hamidieh Mosque in Cairo
and was attended by a large number of stars like Farouq Al Fishawi, Hussein
Fahmi, Salah Al Saadani and his son Ahmad, director Ismael Abd Al Hafez, Ahmad
Al Hajar and many more.
