Google marks Egyptian actress’ 89th birthday
Google is commemorating the 89th birthday of Karima Mokhtar, a famous Egyptian actress at her time, in a new Doodle.
Born on Jan. 16, 1934 in Sahel Selim, Egypt, Mokhtar was nicknamed the “Mother of Egyptian Cinema.”
She was an Egyptian stage, television and film actress whose career continued for over 50 years. The actress obtained a bachelor’s degree in dramatic arts from Egypt’s Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts.
Karima Mokhtar, who died in 2017, had dozens of works, but her first film was Thaman el-Horeya (The Price of Freedom).
A Twitter user shared a post thanking Google for celebrating the Egyptian actress’ birthday. However, she complained that the graphic looks different and it doesn’t seem to match the facial features of the actress.
