Heartthrob! Rami Malek Is Charming Us With His Broken Arabic

Published

on

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate Egyptian-American superstar/heartthrob, Rami Malek, who seems like he’s going to keep charming us with his broken Arabic every once in a while.

Last year, a BBC Arabic interview by Husam Sam Asi with Malek went viral as the Mr. Robot lead actor spoke in his parents’ mother tongue. It was the first time for us, Egyptian fans, to hear him casually utter words like shukran, masr, and Alhamdulillah; Arabic for thank you, Egypt, and, thank God consecutively. We were all surprised with our jaws dropping.

Now, after finally getting used to the actor’s accent, he is no longer hesitant to throw in an Arabic word here and there during his interviews with the Arab media. Lately, two more interviews began circulating on social media; one with Patrick Abboud and another one with Husam Sam Asi. He mainly talked about his new lead role in the biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, portraying none other than Queen’s legendary Freddie Mercury! Add to that some extra juice on Malek’s ethnic background, his expectations, and even things you probably never knew about Mercury!

He confessed that he thought he’d never make it in Hollywood as an Arab

Bearing Malek’s Egyptian roots in mind, the actor probably never thought he’d go beyond roles like King Tut’s for instance. He didn’t have high expectations for himself in the industry as it was not that easy for an Arab to make it big in a place like Hollywood.

Rami told Abboud, “For a long time I thought, ‘I’m not gonna get this. There’s no way I’m going to play the lead of a television series!” He then added, “I did not think that, that would be the case. It was not dominated by actors who look like me or you or had names like us.”

Today, Malek is proudly a Primetime Emmy Award winner, he also has earned himself the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. And now, his role in Bohemian Rhapsody might be Malek’s gate to even more nominations and who knows, he might land himself an Oscar!

Malek and Mercury actually have things in common

Turns out that Freddie Mercury is nothing but a stage name for Farrokh Bulsara. He was originally born in Zanzibar to Parsis parents and lived in both India and London. Later on, when he formed Queen, he legally changed his name to Mercury. Hence, they’re both immigrants who made it to the big-time when they thought they couldn’t!

Rami finally assured our speculations made about the lyric “Bismillah” in Bohemian Rhapsody

If you’re a hardcore Queen fan, Bohemian Rhapsody must be your favorite song! Out of all the lyrics, one word, in particular, caught the attention of every single Arab out there. We were all probably like, “did he just say bismilliah?” You probably had your doubts as well and speculated for years, but Rami Malek just put your doubts to an end. Yes, Freddie Mercury did mean to say bismillah, Arabic for “in the name of God.”

It's Just me, Akram Moftah typical cancer radio announcer crazy about cinema, photography, videography, soccer, Radio, internet, marketing, cars.

Rumor has it that Google Maps has agreed on recording vocal directions using the iconic catch phrases of the comedy star Badria Tolba, the news spreading on social media says that the decision has been made after recent demands from fans to have her record for Google maps.

But, just minutes ago, several media outlets including El Watan and El Youm el Sabe3 denied the news. So far, fans are confused on whether or not their wishes have been answered!

Those denying the news said that Google explained that even though they enjoy Badria’s films, they don’t believe that she would match the clear voice of navigation that they use in order to guide millions everyday.

We are still waiting for a confirmation from the actress or a spokesman from Google maps, in order to put an end to the confusion and the rumors spreading like wildfire.

But we gotta say, a navigation system with catchphrases like Tolba’s seems to us like a really good idea!

Mo Salah’s Christmas Photo Wins Both Criticism and Praise

Published

Mohamed Salah shared last night a beautiful photo of him with his daughter and wife in front of a Christmas tree, our first impression on the photo was how lovely it is but shortly after, the usual criticism started pouring in and we couldn’t help but wonder why?

The photo has of course gone viral in no time with the majority of people expressing their love and admiration to the family, others admired him for promoting religious tolerance and then there were others who attacked him for ‘celebrating’ this day.

With more than 40,000 comments on his Instagram post, a large number of users weren’t a bit hesitant to quickly criticize Salah based on religious grounds.

“They hypnotized you in Liverpool, you know it is ‘haram’ (forbidden) to celebrate Christmas,” one Instagram user said, while another called Salah an “infidel” for “endorsing Christian theology.”

Now the question is, when will we ever stop judging the lives of others, celebrities in particular? A simple, innocent photo of his small family that Salah was open enough to share with his fans caused such a huge debate. Why? Because of a Christmas tree and without even any sort of a caption that may suggests a celebration or that may send a message.

It’s just sad that there are still others who think this way, from our part, we are sharing this beautiful photo of the three of them and sending our love their way.
