The 93 year old former actress “Fakhri Khorvash” living in the U.S.
Khorvash’s performance in Prince Ehtejab (1974) as the hapless maid forced by the eponymous prince to pretend to be his wife was well-received. In 1976, Khorvash starred in Mohammad Reza Aslani’s Chess of the Wind (Shatranj-e Baad). Criticising the royal government and featuring understated as well a strong female protagonist, it was suppressed after only two screenings. The reels were feared lost and only resurfaced in 2014. Khorvash played a paraplegic woman who is hounded by various relatives to give up her fortune.
