A good friend of the late prominent Egyptian actor Ahmad Zaki has revealed that Ahmad’s entire fortune amounts to 130 Egyptian pounds only. The source added that the bank Ahmad used to deal with revealed that the actor had not placed one dime into his account and was forced to withdraw all he had in the past months.
According to the London based daily, Al Quds Al Arabi, Ahmad had withdrew his money in order to prepare for the film “Halim”, which he never completed, and had made several trips to Paris before he began his treatment and made agreements with two of the finest make-up artists.
The remaining wealth Ahmad had owned he donated to the film, in addition to financing the treatment of a young man who was suffering from cancer as well. It was added that the actor had made charitable contributions to three hospital employees at Dar Al Foad Hospital.
The late actor had stressed to his son that he wanted him to become independent and not rely on inherited fortune. On a different note, despite the passing of almost two weeks on the actor’s death, employees at the hotel where he had been residing for 15 years are still receiving voice messages and letters of condolences from fans all around the world.
