This image was taken in Istanbul on the beautiful Bosporus river a day before I received my first best actor award for #BeyondTheClouds. Safe to say I wasn’t expecting it, especially not after they’d just honoured the great auteur Béla Tarr minutes before. Gosh I looked like such a kid then, and it was barely 3 years ago. Even then he saw in me something that only he could and entrusted me with the role of Amir which made me realise I have no business second guessing and questioning myself, if I was chosen by him. Thank you for giving me so much to remember and setting the foundation of my journey in films so beautifully. Love and respect always, Agha Majidi. P.S- he was feeding the birds and his lil cherubic grandson Roozbeh kept trying to leap out of my arms and off the ship to fly with the birds I guess 😄 that’s what we were laughing about..”
Beyond the Clouds additionally starred Malavika Mohanan, Gautam Ghose, GV Sharada and Tannishtha Chatterjee, amongst others. The film obtained a variety of world reward and was screened at varied worldwide platforms, together with International Film Festival of India.
