Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 17July 15Sad departure of a legend
The Gulf News story about the legendary actor Omar Sharif dying at age 83, came as sad news (‘Omar Sharif to be buried in Egypt’, Gulf News, July 13). The Egyptian-born actor’s demise is a great loss for the film world. He is known for his performances in Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, Genghis Khan and many others. Doctor Zhivago brought him fame and some of his movies subsequently went for Oscar nominations. His role as one of the stylish villains in Mackenna’s Gold, no one can forget. I pray for the departed legendary actor.
