A college official said, “Salim hailed from Sur and it was his hometown. In an untimely moment he left us. “He won laurels around the world for his works in both films and theatre. Known for his vibrant personality and knowledge of cinema, Salim was an inspiration to not only people of Sur but to the entire country. He inspired many young people both Omanis and non-Omanis.”
The college has started accepting scholarships from April 9 for all courses. It will continue receiving applications till all 50 seats are filled. Orphan students from across Oman can apply for the scholarships.
Some of Salim Bahwan’s best movies include Mahra Story, Search For The Impossible and The Final Delivery. He died on March 11 at The Royal Hospital of a massive heart attack.
