Akbar Abdi transferred to another hospital

TEHRAN, Sept. 15 (MNA) -- Akbar Abdi was transferred to Tehran’s Aatieh Hospital on Tuesday evening.

The veteran comedian who was admitted to the Sa’adatabad Clinic in Tehran on Monday due to a blood clot in his right leg, has been transferred to the better equipped Aatieh hospital.

The Sa’adatabad Clinic declined to accept any money from Abdi because of his reputation, Abdi’s close friend, Hossein Mardi, told the Persian service of the Mehr News Agency on Wednesday.

Abdi was forbidden to move because of the blood clot, since any movement could dislodge the blood clot, which upon arrival at the heart would result in heart failure, Mardi explained.

Abdi was previously admitted to a Tehran hospital for the disease last May.

The 52-years-old actor began his career with the children’s TV series “The Traffic Neighborhood”, directed by Dariush Moadebian in 1981.

He was dubbed “the man with a thousand faces of Iranian cinema” for the broad array of comedy roles he played during the 1980’s.

His main credits include “The Actor”, “Delshodegan” and “The Snowman”.
