Pakdel, who took on the role of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) uncle Abu-Talib, remembered Majidi's historical epic with pleasure saying, “Living in that atmosphere was very strange for me.”
“Working with Mr. Majidi was really satisfying. He is as good a director as his name suggests. The experience of working with him was an extraordinarily beautiful and auspicious one,” Pakdel added.
Pakdel further talked about the professional cast and crew behind the project, mentioning that working with the team was a great privilege for him.
‘Muhammad: The Messenger of God’ is an epic about the birth of Islam following the early life of Prophet Muhammad (PBHU). It is the biggest-budgeted Iranian film to date.
