Yesterday evening in Tirana the famous American actor James Belushi received Albanian citizenship with an official act of the Albanian President Bamir Topi.
According to the official website of "Eagle Mobile". Belushi is the son of an Albanian immigrant from Korça and has never hidden his origins. He was the one who asked the Albanian citizenship. "I have always claimed to be Albanian," said the famous actor last night while the decision of the Albanian head of state was made official.
Belushi, who owes his success above all to comedies, did not spare the jokes even during the ceremony: "Now I am officially Albanian, this year I will have to start paying taxes in Albania".
In reality, James Belushi has now also entered into business relations with Albania: he will be the face of Eagle Mobile, the third mobile telephone company in the Albanian market.
James Belushi made frequent visits to Albania and was always greeted with enthusiasm. Only a year ago he received the honor "Honor of the Nation", one of the most important awards in the Land of Eagles.
Among the upcoming films in which Belushi should appear there is "The ghost" by Roman Polanski, whose release could however be delayed or compromised by the recent judicial events of the director.
