Iran actor Babak Karimi has been cast to costar with legendary Italian film star Sophia Loren in a new feature by her son Edoardo Ponti.
Set to be released in March 2020, Karimi will experience his first international presence in a foreign movie titled ‘The Life Ahead’ which is an adaptation of Romain Gary’s novel ‘La vie devant soi’.
‘The Life Ahead’ is a story of family and friendship that has political undertones.

Among the long list of movies with Karimi starring in them, ‘The Past’, 'The Salesman’ and ‘A Separation’ by Oscar-winning Asghar Farhadi as well as ‘Secret Ballot’, ‘Fish & Cat’, ‘A Wedding’ and ‘Invasion’ stand out.
