Iran’s ‘Zapas’ shows chasing rainbows not impossible

Borzou Niknejad’s ‘Zapas’ representing Iran at China’s Asian Rainbow Awards was twice in the spotlight.

Producer Seyyed Amir Parvin Hosseini received the Best Comedy award and Elnaz Habibi picked up the Best Actress award for her role in the soccer-themed comedy.

The story revolves around the promotion of a third-division soccer team whose top player Saeed picks a tendon injury in the dying moments of a game, emerging as the major sequence of the flick.   

The third Asia Rainbow TV Awards ceremony was held in Macao, China, with actors from Chinese mainland taking home Best Leading Actor and Best Leading Actress awards.

It is an Asian television awards ceremony organized by the Hong Kong Television Association and China Television Production Committee. The event debuted in Hong Kong in 2011, followed by Macao in 2014.
