Soltan Rahmati departed after Shahs‘ sixth season, and Younai after the first, though he later returned in a “friend of” role. The rest of the OGs retained their status as full-time cast members throughout Shahs‘ entire run.
Over the years, they were joined by additional stars Lilly Ghalichi, Asifa Mirza and Shervin Roohparvar, along with Destiney Rose and Nema Vand, who appeared on the on Shahs‘ latest season.
News of the show’s pause comes three days after reports surfaced about Shouhed being arrested and booked on a felony charge.
