TEHRAN – Reza Mirkarimi, the producer of director Kamal Tabrizi’s comedy film “We Are All Together”, denied on Friday online reports alleging the project has helped certain people to launder money.

“The reports are being published by those who have dominated Iranian cinema by their flops and when they see their interests under threat from new successful productions, they begin poisoning the minds of people by accusing the successful filmmakers of using dirty money in their movies,” Mirkarimi said at a press conference for his latest film “Qasre Shirin” as a director.

He addressed the journalists and said, “You will see ‘We Are All Together’ in the future and you will find it a different comedy.”

He said that the accusing people themselves use the dirty money to produce their films.

Starring Hamed Behdad, “Qasre Shirin” had its Iranian premiere at the 37th Fajr Film Festival on Friday. The film is competing in the official section of the festival, which is currently underway in Tehran.

Earlier last week, Saeid Malekan, the producer of “Gholamreza Takhti”, a movie about the life story of Iranian Olympic gold-medalist wrestler Gholamreza Takhti, denied an allegation of money laundering.
