The Egyptian actress Karima Mokhtar’s 89th birthday is celebrated in today’s Doodle. The “Mother of Egyptian Cinema” was well-known for portraying motherly figures with depth and humility. She was a prolific performer who appeared in numerous movies, television shows, and plays over the course of her career.
Karima was born in Sahel Selim, Egypt, on this date in 1934. She made the decision to pursue her silver screen aspirations, despite the fact that her parents at first disapproved of her acting career. Before beginning her search for employment in the entertainment industry, Karima obtained a bachelor’s degree in theater from the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts.
Karima, a natural performer with charisma, won the audition to host the children’s radio show “Baba Sharou.” She was able to get her first movie role in Thaman El-Horeya (The Price of Freedom) as a result of this. Karima became famous for her role as a young mother of seven children in Al-Hafeed (The Grandson), where she demonstrated her ability to portray maternal characters.
Amira Hobi Ana (Amira My Love) and Al-Shaytan Ya’ez (The Devil Preaches) were two of Karima’s subsequent successes. She then looked into other mediums like theater and television. In the play El-Eyal Kebret (The Kids Have Grown Up), Karima starred as a wife and mother dealing with family turmoil. She received praise for her performance. She played one of her most well-known roles in the popular Egyptian soap opera Yetraba Fi Ezo (May He Grow Up Prosperous) later in her career. In 2007, Karima won the award for Best Actress at the Cairo Arab Media Festival.
Karima helped revolutionize the Egyptian film industry and paved the way for future generations of actresses by leaving behind a legacy of strong and sympathetic performances.
