When the chaos between Palestine and Israel started few years back, it was a heart-breaking and terrible moment for us as many civilians and innocent lives were lost. I remember out of a sudden, Afdlin said that he wants to go to Palestine to extend his support. And I was like, “Are you crazy bro? You don’t just wake up in the morning and suddenly decide that you want to fly to a war zone country to help? And you? A well-known celebrity and artist? Renown film director?” He said, “Yes, I want to go there. I want to gather support from many others and highlight to everyone that we must show our support for the Palestinians and our Muslim brothers and sisters.” You know what? He knows very well that he might not be coming back alive but he just went ahead and did it. And that’s him. He is very determined and big-hearted when it comes to contribution and love. I personally admire him and his talent. I appreciate his authenticity and his heart to travel to help the Palestinians and Syrians. This is the key reason why he wants to grow his business. I know many artists and celebrities have a big heart to contribute as well, but ever since I knew Afdlin as Afdlin, I’m blown away by his selflessness and willingness to help anyone at anytime when the opportunity arises. He is willing to sacrifice so much just to contribute to others. This is truly a remarkable individual. My well wishes and prayers for him to have a blessed life always.
