Zohreh Safavi talks of her role in 'The Fateful Day'.
The veteran Iranian actress says she was contacted by Sirous Moqaddam who offered her a role in the flick directed by Shahram Asadi. She was briefed that she would be playing a Bedouin on the day of Ashoura.
It brings a lump to ‘We Few’ star’s throat to narrate how the Bedouin deserted Imam Hussein (AS) and regretted what they did when Imam was martyred.
She accepts the part and gets so emotional on the set that throws soil on her head so much; as a result, she would come down with sore eyes for 3 to 4 days.
