From the countryside to Britain and the revolution

It did not take long for them to return to Iran as political tensions subsided and it was safe for her dad who worked for Shah of Iran to return to his homeland.
Cinema Career – Acting from the age of 17
Finally, in 1991, when she was 17 years old, she appeared in the call for acting tests and after being accepted for the first time she appeared in the movie “Viper”, she went in front of the camera with Jamshid Hashempour who was a superstar at that time.
In 2001, she reached her highest fame level with the movie “Bread, Love and Motorcycle 1000”, then with the movie “Bloody Cow” in 2003 and finally with the movie “Charchangoli” in 2008. The peak of her fame with television began in 2006 with the series “Basement”.
Bahareh met her first beloved husband at the age of 17, on her way home from university. After a few years of friendship and close relationship the two finally got married in 1994, which resulted in the life of a girl named Parya.
Her husband’s brother Mehrab Ghasemkhani was also a well-known writer and his current wife Shaghayegh who is also an actor. His mother, Ms. Parvin Ghaem Maghami, later became an actor through Peyman Ghasem Khani who was a screenwriter for “Barareh” and “Men with 1000 faces”.
Bahareh Rahnama and her husband Peyman Ghasemkhani divorced after 22 years of living together, in 2015 by mutual agreement.
On September 25, 2017, at the age of 44, the actress announced her second marriage to Amir Khosrow Abbasi, a media and cosmetics industry activist. Amir Khosrow Abbasi is the owner of the Heinz and Jaxiast cosmetics brand in Tehran.
The presence of Bahareh Rahnama and Amir Khosrow Abbasi in the Shabahang program was an incident that caused the rumors about the actress’s divorce from her second husband to spread again. Of course, this time, the audience saw Hamed Ahangi’s program and looked at this issue from another perspective, and thought that when the two participated in a program together, then there was no news of separation and the news about their divorce was rumored.
But it was not long before Peyman Ghasemkhani’s ex-wife published a text on her Instagram, which clarified everything.
Unlike her first marriage, the second marriage did not last long and bahareh officially announced her divorce from Amir Khosrow on her personal Instagram on April 2022. Her second marriage only lasted for 4 years and now she is single ready to mingle again.
The actress has been present in various brands as an advertising model for a long time, except for her husband’s brand. She has been a model for various masons such as RIMAAH.
Surgery and weight loss
The actress, who has been suffering from overweight for many years, was forced to have an auction and put a balloon in her stomach a few years ago. She lost a whopping 25 KG in just 8 months by having liposuction surgery and with a special diet.
Sentenced to 50 lashes
In April 2016, Sirvan Khosravi criticized the situation in the country in an Instagram post, criticizing Hassan Rouhani’s celebrities. At first, Amir Mehdi Jouleh reacted to Khosravi’s words, but a few minutes later, the artist’s Instagram page was hacked and closed.
In defense of Jouleh, Ms. Rahnama accused Sirvan of drawing attention to his rudeness, which Sirvan Khosravi eventually sued for Rahnama’s spring tweets, and was able to sentence him to 50 lashes. The court suspended the sentence for two years due to the actor’s social status and lack of previous record, so that the sentence would be ineffective if she did not commit the offense.
