Rumor of Ahmad Zaki’s funeral a ridiculous lie

The producer of the film “Halim” has denied the most recent rumor that prominent Egyptian actor Ahmad Zaki had requested that in the case he dies before the film is complete to have his actual funeral ceremony used in the movie. The producer stressed that such a rumor is simply ridiculous and insensitive.


Sameh Jubran, who has been by the side of Ahmad at the hospital the entire time, has stressed that he never heard such a request made by the actor and added that the film is still incomplete and that it is impossible to screen it because there are many scenes that need to be filmed.


Rumors had it that Zaki had requested the producer of the film that in the case he dies before the film is complete, he wants his funeral to be filmed by director Sharif Arafeh to incorporate it in the film. Ahmad stressed that he feels his funeral will be as memorable as the late singer Abdul Halim and using it will be more appropriate than using the old filmed copy of the late singer.


The health condition of Ahmad remains very critical and unstable and has a low oxygen level in his blood. The actor is experiencing complications in his breathing forcing doctors to use oxygen concentrators to enable him to breathe.


Sources at Dar Al Foad hospital, where the actor is residing, have revealed that the condition of Ahmad is hopeless and he may have a few months to live by the most. Doctors have stressed that he has reached the most vital level in his disease and people in such a state can survive for no more than a year.
