Egyptian artist Sherif Desouky cried, during a video intervention with journalist Amr Adib, after news spread about his entry into a psychiatric hospital.
Desouki explained that he visited a psychiatrist 20 years ago, after he separated from his wife or his son’s mother, and asked: “Is there a limit when he is separated from his times to go to the street dancing?”
Desouki added that he worked with the most important directors in Egypt after he built himself for 40 years, such as Sherif Arafa, Kamilah Abu Zukri, Ahmed El-Gendy and Ahmed Khaled Moussa.
Desouki asked Amr Adib to ask these directors about his behavior in the filming location, asking, “Why do we dictate which people will fight him in what stage,” asserting that we in Egypt are fighting true talents, as he put it.
He continued, “You are fighting while you are successful and there is a sentence that I heard from 40 years ago that we are a country that kills true talented people.”
Sherif Desouki cried because of what he had been subjected to, stressing that he only asked for his wages in order to receive treatment, and added in tears: “I am not doing her acting work, Professor Amr. This is an injustice. The locality is drunk and intoxicated, and I go two hours before the location, and in my spirit I stall the caravans with the workers and break my fast with them on the ground, and I ask them one individual. ”
