In an ifilm exclusive talk, veteran Iranian actor Abbas Mahboub reveals how Iranian director insists that he needs to reprise the role of real estate agent in Iranian cinema.
Citing a reason for his honorific as "Iranian Cinema Estate Agent", Mahboud said to ifilm that "I was once introduced to director Dehnamaki and he told me you play the role of a real estate agent well and added that I want you to play the role of an agent for me."
He also said to ifilmers on his bio as follows:
"My name is Abbas Mahboub saying hello to you dear ifilm viewers. Here is my bio and how I became interested in acting. I was born in the south of Tehran, in a hospital located in a street across from Nayeb Saltaneh street named “Kolahdouzan’, but I don’t know the new name now.
In the vicinity of our house, there was a cinema called “Ramsar’ and in old days when there was a movie going on the screen, the sound was played through a loudspeaker and selected photos from the same movie were showcased out of the cinema.
I remember when I was six years old I went to the same cinema for the first time where the Indian movie ‘Homeless’ was played."
