    This is a huge loss for all of Egypt!!!! God bless Khaled
    and his soul as much as Khaled entertained us in his life. He was one of the
    best actors ever on the silver screen. He introduced a very fine, extremely valued,
    and respected art. He could always make us smile, laugh, weep, and cry. He had
    a uniquely shaped, well defined personality. His performance was perfectly balanced
    between comedy and tragedy. He was truly a genius actor who carved his short
    career very deep in our hearts and minds. Khaled will always stay alive and present
    among us with his great work. We will never forget Khaled. He earned his place
    among the greatest actors in the history of Egypt and the Arab nation!!!
