“It is really a huge thing to call myself an artist because I don’t see myself as one. I’m in the show business pursuing an art career. Those who are involved in art career are not artists. Real artists are way different people,” Arjmand said in a modest manner.
Further on, the two-time Crystal Simorgh winning actor raised a very interesting question, addressing some prominent icons in the field, “If you call me an artist, then what are you going to call Mozart? Or Hafez? Or Ferdowsi?”
After many years of performing in theatre, Arjmand started his acting career by appearing in ‘Captain Khorshid’ (1986) which brought him Crystal Simorgh award from the 5th Fajr Film Festival.
He has played different roles ever since, most of which might be considered historical, as well as roles of drama characters.
