Young Iranian actor Amir Jadidi is to star in a new biopic on Iranian champion and wrestler Gholamreza Takhti.
Directed by Bahram Tavakoli and produced by Saeed Malekan, the film is currently on the pre-production stage.
The two cineastes' latest project has been 'The lost strait', which won several awards at the 36th Fajr Film Festival.
The script for the new flick is written and soon the locations for filming the project will be determined.
Gholamreza Takhti was born in Tehran on August 27, 1930. At the age of 15, he enrolled in Poulad club in southern Tehran and was trained to become a wrestler.
Takhti won his first Iranian championship in 1950 and later in 1951 he won a silver medal at the world freestyle championship in Helsinki. That was the first international medal ever gained by an Iranian wrestler.
He won several other medals but that is not the only reason why he is so famous and popular. He proved to be a real hero by showing such exemplary character as to being of any sort of help to the poor and needy.
