About Hossein Khandan
Later that year, Khosrow Shakibaei—one of the best actors after the Iranian Revolution—tried to find and meet Behrouz Voussoughi. Any attempt to meet Behrouz Vossoughi, whose name and picture are banned in Iran, would have put Khosrow Shakibaei’s acting career in Iran in jeopardy.
After the unexpected death of Khosrow Shakibaei in July 2008, Hossein Khandan, director of “Another Salute” received consent from Khosrow’s family to release the film.
