Pahlavi Era Film Star Manoocher Vossough and Pop Diva Googoosh in London Re United Again For the first time in 30 Years. This reunion took place during Googoosh’s recent sell-out London shows at Wembley Arena in March 2010.
Manoocher Vossough Up Close and Personal Portrait on Bebin TV:
Manoocher Vossough started his movie career when he was 22 years old, in the mid 60s. Between then and 1979, he starred in over 90 movies, including Kako, Tak-khal, Ba Ham Vali Tanha, Derakhtha Istade Mimirand, and Charkhe Bazigar. This was at a time when the Iranian film industry was at it’s pioneering years. Manoocher Vossough starred with many of the leading female actresses of the era, including 11 films with Foroozan and 9 films with Poori Banaie. He starred in 2 films with Googoosh; one of those was called Asseman Bi Setareh in 1970 (pictured above). Manoocher Vossough, like many of his colleagues, was banned from ever appearing in front of a camera again by the Islamic government of Iran in 1979, forcing him into very early retirement, at the age of 35.
