Basiri said that he had signed contracts to play parts in television shows and had even recorded numerous scenes. But when the television shows aired, the scenes that featured him were not included. He also said of his previously released work, “Trailers of [my] work in films and television serials were also taken out.”

However, once Ahmadinejad left office, those scenes were re-inserted and appeared when the programs were re-broadcast.
