I wrote – Yasmine Al-Sharqawi:
Artist Hisham Selim narrated a situation with his late father, Salim Selim, when he discovered that he was smoking cigarettes at a young age.
“Salim” said, during his presence on the “Sahranin” program, presented by the artist Amir Karara, that he started smoking cigarettes when he was nine years old, without knowing any of his family, but his father learned about it when he was sixteen, stressing: “I was allowed to smoke in front of him “.
Hisham Selim added, that one time he asked his father for cigarettes and a lighter, so his response was: “You don’t have smoking tools except your mouth?”
His most recent work was “Selim”, the series “Kalbash 3”, which was shown last Ramadan, starring Amir Karara, written by Bahir Dowidar and directed by Peter Mimi.
