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.”

Sharnouby Reveals Shocking Details About His Relationship With Sarah El Tabakh

Published

By

A few weeks back, a video of Mohamed El Sharnouby’s engagement to the producer Sarah El Tabakh went viral on social media and people were both happy for the couple and surprised at the sudden engagement in the same time.

After a while, rumors started spreading about their breakup, the news which people found ironic and hard to believe up until yesterday when Sharnouby dropped a bombshell that left fans shocked and quite confused.

He started by explaining that he has always preferred to separate his personal life from his work and never once liked to discuss anything related to his relationships, but when speculations started to spread about his relationship and people started to attack, he felt it is about time he tell the entire story.

According to his post on Facebook, their relationship started years ago where they first met for business purposes but their friendship started to escalate quickly. He added that she was very supportive of his singing career and encouraged him to pursue it at a time where his focus was only on his acting career.

Sharnouby said that the relationship was met with many obstacles, one of them is that his own father didn’t approve because of the somewhat big age difference between the two of them and that explains why his father didn’t appear in the engagement’s video. He further revealed that the video she posted was actually taken back in April 2018!

The trouble actually started when they started mixing business with their relationship and Sharnouby believes it was his fault in the first place to have agreed to signing a contract that included terms risking his career. But then again he was all in for the love and trust between them.

Now, the situation is unstable, they have broken up and Sharnouby didn’t want to carry on with the album or their work together. That was when the contract appeared in the picture.

Sharnouby claims that his career is at risk now because she is his manager after all, and media connections is one of her strength points, all of which have been causing him trouble ever since.

At the end of the post, Sharnouby stressed that this would be the last time he speaks of anything personal out of respect to what the both of them once had. He was forced to share this only after all the questions, rumors and speculations went on and on about their relationship.

Below is the Facebook post at which he explains everything in detail.

So far, no official statement from Sarah El Tabakh has been released and she is actually been under attack since Sharnouby’s post. For that and to stand against all the harsh comments left on the engagement’s video post, we expect to hear her side of the story very soon!
