Like kids my age and during my studies, Seeing school plays, I became interested in theatre and acting. Of course, my interest in cinema came from watching two films and a serial. AMIR NADERI’S memorable film “Runner” and “HAMOON” by DARIUSH MEHRJUIE. KHOSRO SHAKIBAEI’S playing in the film “HAMOON” and a few years later, his brilliant playing in“Green House” series interested me in directing in cinema. I make a double effort to works in my films. Although he died very early but it gave me hope and motivation to work to create lasting and profound works
