Googoosh & Manouchehr Vossough

Manoucher Vossough and Googoosh
 Re-United in London For The First Time in 30 Years

Pahlavi Era Film Star Manoucher 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.

Manoucher 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.
