Iranian filmmaker Jamal Shourjeh has been scheduled to continue making ‘Prophet Moses [PBUH]’ series after being released from hospital.
The director returned home on Monday after spending about one week at a Tehran hospital for brain surgery to remove a blood clot.
Producer of the series, Ahmad Miralaee said Shourjeh is in good condition and needs to stay home to recover from the illness completely.
The series ‘Prophet Moses [PBUH]’ is currently undergoing pre-production stage.
The biopic TV series on Prophet Moses [PBUH] is based on Quranic descriptions and references from Tafsir al-Mizan.
Tafsir al-Mizan, written by Allamah Seyyed Mohammad-Hossein Tabatabaee, is an exegesis of the Holy Quran.
Mentioned in the Holy Quran, Moses [PBUH] is a prophet in Abrahamic religions.
Shourjeh was born in the Iranian city of Zanjan on February 11, 1955. He has directed a number of war-themed movies, including ‘The Tenth Night’, ‘Kirkuk Mission’, ‘Edge of Blade’, and ‘Passing Crimson Line’.
