A photo from behind the scenes of Rahim - Egypt Today.
CAIRO – 21 May 2018: Famous Egyptian actor Yasser Galal performed a dangerous jump in the third episode of the TV series “Rahim”, a jump that he insisted to do himself, refusing a stunt double to perform instead of him.
Galal performed the dangerous jump in a dazzling way, despite how difficult it was to jump from that tall building roof. The jump stirred a lot of controversy on social media, and many thought that a duplicate performed the jump, not Galal.
“I am proud of the controversy surrounding the jump of Yasser Galal in ‘Rahim’. I would like to say that if we compare the result with an American film that shoots more than 10 times to get the scene they want, we will find that we did a great job in this scene because we work in very tough circumstances; we had more than 10 scenes to shoot that day and we don’t have the luxury of repeating these scenes.
Hats off to the director Mohmed Salama and Galal; and by the way, Galal performed the jump, not a duplicate,” stated Karim Abdel Aziz, the photographer of the jump, on his Facebook page.
Egypt Today presents a funny video from behind the scenes while shooting the fourth episode of “Rahim”, which has managed to grab the attention of the audience from its first episode, because its incidents are fast, interesting and full of suspense.
After his runaway success last Ramadan in “Zel El-Rais” (The President’s Shadow), this year Yasser Galal plays Rahim, an Egyptian businessman who works in money laundering and dollar smuggling.
After a short stint in prison, Rahim discovers his wealth has been seized and his family is gone. In the recent episodes, Rahim managed to find his father and discovered that his brother-in-law stands behind throwing him in prison.
With an unexpected meeting with his ex-fiancée Dalia, a new romantic line is added to the series to spice it up. The series, which co-stars Nour, Mohamed Riad, Hassan Hosny, Rogina and Dina, follows Rahim’s journey of revenge and the quest to locate his family.
