Concurrent with Rashidi’s birth anniversary on July 16th, his widow Ehteram Boroumand made the donation to the museum.
The collection includes personal handwritings, books, photos and the awards that he won at various festivals, including the Fajr International Theater Festival and the Iranian Cinema Celebration.
Among the memorabilia also are the contracts of some of Rashidi’s films such as ‘Kamalolmolk’ and ‘Hezar Dastan’ by director Ali Hatami, as well as the actor’s letters to his widow Borumand and daughter Leili.
Rashidi, who is mostly remembered by his performance in the acclaimed TV series ‘Hezar Dastan’, died in 2016 at the age of 83.
Rashidi made his last cinematic appearance in ‘Ekbatan’ directed by Mehrshad Karkhani in 2011.
