POPULAR local comedian Zizan Razak (pic) denies that he and actress Mira Filzah are in a special relationship, insisting that they are merely close friends, Harian Metro reports.
Zizan said he could not stop fans from making such assumptions as they had linked him romantically to other artistes before.
“I have been close to other artistes before and there are those who are not close to me, yet people think I have a relationship with them,” he told the daily.
He said he met Mira while hosting the Anugerah Bintang Popular BH awards ceremony last year. Zizan said he left it to fate when asked if he would end up in a relationship with the actress.
Meanwhile, Mira said it was common for fans to draw such a conclusion, especially because she worked with Zizan on an Astro telemovie recently.
> Berita Harian reports that two firemen from Seremban saved two women from drowning in the nick of time after a flash flood early on Thursday morning.
Sofiyah Siswadi, 43, and her friend Rosmah Bahrain, 37, were trapped in their car after it was swept into a 5m-deep stream along Jalan Seremban-Kuala Pilah, near Kampung Awah Liat, at about 4.30am.
“It happened very fast. We only had time to wind down the car windows but could not get the doors open.
“Our car was swept into the stream and started sinking. The water came up to our necks,” she said, adding that she was thinking of her children as she thought she would drown.
Fortunately, she said, two firemen nearby heard their screams and rushed over to pull them out of the car just before it sank.
Firemen Mohd Japliey Ambasing, 23, and Wan Hazizi Abd Halim, 33, said they were helping with the evacuation of villagers nearby when they heard the screams and saw the car drifting in the stream.
He said they did not think of their own safety but immediately rushed over and dived in to save the women.
