Italian luxury house Bulgari has picked Dubai-based Syrian actor Bassel Khaiat as its inaugural male regional ambassador. As one of the most distinguished and critically acclaimed actors in the Arab world of film, Khaiat was chosen by the Maison to “lend his unparalleled charm and sophistication to Bulgari's legacy”.
“I am extremely proud and excited to join Bulgari family as the first male regional ambassador,” Khaiat announced to his 2.3 million followers on Instagram. “This opportunity allows me to embody the brand's rich legacy and heritage…”
With a long list of roles in his distinguished acting career, having started in a children’s theatre aged just eight, Khaiat is also known for breaking into international audiences with Netflix’s Tango in 2018, as well as judging the Sharjah International Film Festival for Children.
