Different photos of Gholamreza Takhti

Takhti tended to act fairly when competing against rivals during his career, something which originated from traditional values of Zurkhaneh, a kind of heroic behaviour that epitomizes chivalrous qualities known as Javanmardi.In 1962, a terrible earthquake occurred in Bou’in-Zahra in western Iran, killing over 12,000. Takhti was deeply touched by the suffering. Already one of homeland’s biggest stars, he began to walk one of the main avenues of capital, asking for assistance for the victims.
