|Iran’s man of diplomacy Zarif visits comedy king Modiri||
The meeting was arranged after Zarif received an invitation from Modiri to visit the set of the series that is planned as a satire on political, social and cultural issues, the publicist of the series reported on Wednesday.
During the meeting, Zarif’s mobile phone rang frequently. Modiri asked Zarif to give his mobile phone to him for a quarter of an hour so that he could answer the calls. Zarif said, “Ok, then you yourself can answer the UN secretary-general’s call!”
Zarif was fully briefed on the series and its set by Modiri and, along with the production crew, they posed for pictures at the end of the meeting.
The set for “I Was Joking”, which will be distributed on the home video network in January, is located in a large salon in northeastern Tehran.
Zarif is very popular with the people who voted for Hassan Rouhani in the June presidential election.
