    Fardin (7 April 1930 - 6 April 2000) was an Iranian wrestler and actor. Fardin was a popular leading man in scores of movies and was given the title, Soltan of Hearts after his lead role in an Iranian film of the same title. He was a former wrestler who won a silver medal during the 1954 Tokyo games but he became famous in the 1960s.For average Iranians, he represented a hero and served as an alternative to the foreign movie stars. He often played the poor tough guy with the heart of gold who got the beautiful rich girl in the end. He was the lead actor with Aghay-e Gharn-e Bistom (20th century man) and Ganj-e Gharoon (Treasure of Qarun) added to his popularity. He also actded in popular movies such as Gedayan-e Tehran (beggars of Tehran), and Parvaz dar Asemanha (Fly in the skies). However, he was unhappy with cliché movies yet his intellectual movie Jahannam-o-man (hell & me) did not sell well simply because it did not have café fighting and singing scenes which average movie-goers wanted.After the 1979 Iranian Revolution, he starred in only one more film, and his earlier films were eventually banned. In later years, Mr Fardin lived an isolated life and ran a bakery shop in Tehran.He passed away on April 6, 2000. More than 20,000 mourners attended his funeral in Tehran.
