Man Of The World 2017, Mostafa Elezali Shows Support To Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray

Something old, something new, something exciting! 

We first caught up with Mostafa in June 2018 when he still holds the Man of the World title; now, his career life is like a whirlwind. So what's new with him? Well, there's a lot of changes, and they are compelling! But first, let's ask him about Catriona Gray's recent win as the fourth Miss Philippines to take home the Miss Universe crown. 

Let's Talk About Miss Universe 

Today, Catriona embarks the official first day as Miss Universe 2018. As a pageant titleholder himself, Mostafa remarks, "They are all well deserving to be on TOP 5," when asked of his thoughts about the finalists choice this year. And his opinion regarding transgender in pageants? He answered, "I'm not against any gender as long as they respect other's private life."

Mostafa has known of his support to Catriona and her participation at Miss Universe pageant. Ever wonder how they met? Well, here's the story, "I met Catriona through my manager who introduced us, we are acquaintances but what I know about her is that she is a friendly person." Mostafa added, "Her attitude, I believe is an epitome of a true Filipina. She is really friendly and smiles a lot, and is very accommodating." We asked if he has an inspirational message to Catriona as the new Miss Universe, "Stay humble, and make the Philippines proud," he says.  

Speaking of Miss Universe, are we expecting more news about you and Catriona?

Maybe next year because I heard that my manager would co-manage her.

His New Career in the Entertainment Industry

You are now pursuing your goals in your acting career by signing up with Star Magic. How are they building up your celebrity image? Are you taking workshops?

I'm undertaking Tagalog and acting workshops for the meantime. So I hope it will fast track my career as I work hard to study Tagalog.

As a pure foreigner in Philippine Showbiz, do you think this path will help you join the big ranks of stars in the near future? 

I believe so, by working hard and being humble because showbiz makes people famous.

You have just joined ABS-CBN Star Magic and Cornerstone Entertainment, the most prominent Talent Agency in the Philippines, will we see you soon in a movie with one of Cornerstone’s biggest talents?

I’m not sure but yes I will once I manage the language and acting skills.

Any movies or shows you're currently shooting? Can you share your roles in these films?

I have a guest appearance in the movie, "The Girl in the Orange Dress." It's a romance flick which is included at the Metro Manila Film Festival, something like the Oscars in Philippine Film Industry. Also, I am currently shooting in an "I-Flix" series (which is equal to Netflix). The title of the series is "Mystified," and I play the role of Lucifer. These are few of the roles I was offered.

You are the first Man of The World titleholder, first Male Egyptian winner in an International pageant, first Muslim to win a Male pageant, the first pure foreigner in the Philippine Entertainment Industry. Will we expect another first from you?

Hahahahaha! You don’t know me yet. I’m excited to make history so I will work hard to make something new in the showbiz. I wanna surprise my audience.

Any inspirational message to your fans who have followed you and continue to support you in your endeavors?

Keep supporting me, and I will always make you proud.
