TEHRAN – (Iranart)- The crew of “Khatun” commemorated actor Anushirvan Arjmand, mostly famous for his roles in historical and religious plays and TV series, before premiering the religious play by writer and director Hossein Aalambakhsh at the main hall of Tehran’s City Theater Complex on Sunday.
“Love of Imam Hussein (AS) was a key aspect of his personality and he never ignored it,” said director Hossein Mosafer Astaneh who collaborated with Arjmand in several religious theatrical projects, including “The Sun of the Caravan”, which was performed for about a decade during Muharram.
Arjmand’s family, including his son, Borzu, who is also an actor, attended the premiere of the play.
“I am really glad to see that my father is being commemorated during the premiere of ‘Khatun’,” Borzu said on stage.
“In some way, he had made a vow to act in ‘The Sun of the Caravan’… and I believe that the play was a turning point in our lives,” he added.
Anushirvan Arjmand who did his most memorable acting in TV series, which included “Imam Ali (AS)” and “Mokhtarnameh” directed by Davud Mirbaqeri, died at age 73 in December 2014.
