Faran Tahir and Dariush Kashani on starring in the powerful new Broadway play

It's fitting that Faran Tahir and Dariush Kashani portray longtime best friends on stage in The Kite Runner—they're BFFs offstage, too! After years of running into each other at Hollywood auditions, the two became close, and they're thrilled to be collaborating for the first time in Matthew Spangler's moving stage adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's best-selling novel about an Afghan immigrant named Amir (Amir Arison) trying to make amends for past transgressions. Tahir plays Amir's domineering father Baba, who wants to turn his son into someone he's not. Kashani portrays Baba's best friend Rahim, who serves as a supportive father figure to Amir and ultimately offers him a shot at redemption. Join TDF this Wednesday, August 3 at 3 p.m. ET on our Facebook page or our YouTube channel as these veteran character actors chat about performing such an emotional story, how their own fathers reacted to their artistic aspirations and the way their respective immigration journeys shaped their worldview. Captions will be available.
