He told Iran Theater that he was staring at 'Polanski', which is directed by Mohammad Miraliakbari, at Paliz Theater Complex.
About his role in 'Polanski', Salehi said he was playing two characters in the show, adding that it has a nonlinear story of the life and works of Roman Polanski, Polish-born American director and actor.
"My first role is the father of the girl who is allegedly raped by Roman Polanski in the US. The father lodges a complaint against the director," Salehi said, adding, "It is the role of Oscar in Polanski's Bitter Moon, which is played by Hugh Grant."
On his new play, Salehi said that he had started rehearsals of 'Evil Omen' with a team of 30 experienced and young actors, adding that it would be a show of numerous characters.
"It is a strange story of an infant child who kills his families. It is inspired by an old Kurdish tale," he explained.
Siamak Adib, Leila Nazarian and Zahra Davoudnejad are among the cast members, he said, adding that the show would be staged at the City Theater Complex in May.
Salehi said that he was interested in plays with many characters despite its difficulties because of its group physical experience.
