‘Takhti, the World Champion’ new picture released
Art and Experience: ‘Takhti, the World Champion’ cinematic flick by Bahram Tavakkoli has released a new picture.
The released photo shows Mohsen Takhti in a scene captured from the movie.
Film shoot is going on after Amir Jadidi, the main star of the film, left the project and Mohsen Takhti replaced Jadidi to play the role of Iranian world wrestling champion Qolam-Reza Takhti.
Gholamreza Takhti was born in Tehran on August 27, 1930. At the age of 15, he enrolled in Poulad club in southern Tehran and was trained to become a wrestler.
Takhti won his first Iranian championship in 1950 and later in 1951 he won a silver medal at the world freestyle championship in Helsinki. That was the first international medal ever gained by an Iranian wrestler.
He won several other medals but that is not the only reason why he is so famous and popular. He proved to be a real hero by showing such exemplary character as to being of any sort of help to the poor and needy.
