Syrian star Basil Khayyat, following his Instagram followers, shared two new photos, after 3 weeks of absence from social networking sites, and he commented on them by saying: “Not everything in mind is said.”
Khayat’s last post on social media was the mourning of the late Syrian director Hatem Ali, then the late Egyptian scriptwriter Wahid Hamed, who was only a few days apart from their departure.
Khayat was recently busy filming the series “Shadow”, to join the Ramadan 2021 drama race, but the epidemic conditions and the closure imposed by the Lebanese state – the location of filming – prevented the completion of filming, so the work went out of the season.
