Shahab Hosseini winning “Best Actor” at Finnish Jussi Awards 2021
Hosseini’s cinematic debut was in Rokhsareh (2002) directed by Amir Ghavidel. His career took off with his performance in the movie The Fifth Reaction directed by Tahmineh Milani. In June 2011, he announced that he would be taking a break but would return to cinema in 2013. He received a lot of attention in Young Police. Finally, Hamy Ramezan’s Berlinale entry Any Day Now took home an award for its actor Shahab Hosseini, also known for Asghar Farhadi’s The Salesman and named Best Male Lead, as well as the Nordisk Film Award, which comes with €20,000. Saara Pakkasvirta, one of the titular Ladies of Steel , was named Best Supporting Actress for her spirited turn in Pamela Tola’s smash comedy about three ladies embarking on an adventure after the husband of one of them appears to have dropped dead. Accidentally, of course.
