Mohammad Ali Fardin (Persian: محمدعلی فردین‎‎, Born 4 February 1931 - Died 6 April 2000) was an Iranian wrestler and actor.

Life[edit]

Fardin was a popular lead actor in Iranian cinema, and was known by the title, 'King of Hearts', after his lead role in an Iranian film of the same title (Soltane Ghalbha). He was a formerly a wrestler who won the silver medal at the 1952 world freestyle wrestling championships in Tokyo.

He rose to fame in the 1960s. For the average Iranian, he was a heroic figure who served as an alternative to non Iranian movie stars. He was stereotypically cast as the poor tough guy with the heart of gold who got the girl at the end. His films include, Behesht Door Nist, Ghazal, and Ganje Qarun. After the 1979 Iranian Revolution, he starred in only two more films, Bar Faraz -e- Asemanha and Barzakhiha.

He also acted in the Indo Iranian Bollywood film Subah O Sham[1] (1972) starring alongside Waheeda Rehman, Sanjeev Kapoor, Simin Ghaffari and Azar. The film was directed by Tapi Chanakya. His voice in the film was dubbed by Satyen Kappu.

Death[edit]

He died at the age of 70 in April 2000.[2] The news of his death was largely ignored by state radio and television, which was run according to the dictates of the Islamic establishment, who had disapproved of his acting career and had banned his films post the 1979 revolution. He was buried in the Behesht-e-Zahra cemetery in Tehran. More than 20,000 mourners attended his funeral in Tehran.
