In a short exclusive interview with ifilm, popular Iran actor Saeed Aqakhani talks about his reasoning to pick comedy works among various genres in cinema and Television.
When asked in the interview regarding his choice for comic movies and series, Aqakhani said, “I have a few reasons for this. First, life is harder today and I love making an effort to kind of put a smile on people’s faces. That’s my belief and I mean it. It is not just the talk.”
He added, “In the second place, I haven’t had the opportunity to this day to make a social drama for TV. If I ever get the chance, I’ll take it up for sure.”
The actor also said of his criteria to join a project, “I definitely pick any suitable offer for acting. However, if there is no good offer, I just pass.”
“Personally, I don’t pick and choose when it comes to various genres. Technically, I have no preference to act either on TV or in cinema,” ‘The Occupiers’ director notes, adding, “I just focus on presenting the best performances.”
