El-Fishawys Steal Headlines at the 34th edition of the Alexandria Festival of the Mediterranean countries

Following El Gouna Film Festival, the 34th edition of the Alexandria Festival of the Mediterranean Countries has kicked off yesterday from the Bibliotheca of Alexandria.

While stars came to the city of Alexandria to celebrate the opening ceremony of this festival, Farouk El-Fishawy stood by everyone and announced that he’s fighting cancer.

El-Fishawy said that he’s dealing with his cancer as if it’s nothing more than a headache. He stressed on the fact that he’s fine, and hence, his fans and friends should not be upset by the news. He also ensured that he’ll be there for the next edition of the festival to support all his colleagues.

That’s not the only Fishawy who stole headlines yesterday. Ahmed El-Fishawy had two incidents turning heads to him.


Ahmed Farouk El-Fishawy stole headlines with a viral video of him shouting at a journalist. While the video doesn’t show the cause behind El-Fishawy’s anger, rumor has it it’s because of his wife.

Another viral video for what seemed like Fishawy’s wife, Nada ElKamel, helping him tie his shoelaces had many internet users talking.

El-Fishawys seem to be stealing headlines anywhere they go. We wish Farouk El-Fishawy a speedy recovery, may the star win his cancer battle.
