Career[edit] Leila is the daughter of the late Iranian actor Jahangir Forouhar. As a child she acted in movies in minor roles, receiving recognition for her part in Soltane Ghalbha (King of Hearts). As a teenager she began modeling for fashion magazines. She continued to act in movies and has featured in over 47 films, including Ezteraab, Three Sisters and The Thirsty Ones. Move to France[edit] War with neighboring Iraq had a negative impact on the Iranian movie and music industry. The Forouhar family stayed in Teheran until deciding to emigrate from the country.[2] Move to the United States[edit] In 1988 Forouhar and her family moved to the United States. That same year, she released "Makhmal-e-Naz" and in 1989 "Hedieh" ("The Gift"), and the song "Ey Dil" ("Oh My Heart") became very popular[citation needed]. Leila's songs are popular in countries including Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Iraq, Armenia and the United States. She has released more than 20 albums. Her album "Planet of Harmony" included songs in English, Italian, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, Dari Persian, Armenian, Turkish and Kurdish. In August 2004 Leila married Los Angeles-based Iranian-American businessman Esi Nabi.[3] Forouhar's nephew is American Muslim reformer Reza Aslan.[4] In 2006 Leila Forouhar sang in three concerts in Tajikistan in a commemoration of Aryan civilization.[citation needed] In March 2010 she sang at an international celebration of the festival of Nowruz at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.[5] Leila covered Dolly Parton's Jolene on her 1976 album Do Parande (Persian: دو پرنده‎, English: Two Birds).
