Rostam and Sohrab never met until a new war between Iran and Turan started many years later. By then Sohrab was known as the best fighter of Turan army.As no one else dared to fight Rostam, Sohrab was sent to wrestle with the legendary Persian hero. However, the name of the hero was kept in secret, as Sohrab knew that Rostam was his father. On the battle field without stating the reason Sohrab told his rival that he would not fight against Rostam. Thus Rostam did not reveal his name.After a very long and heavy wrestle, Rostam felt weak and afraid to spoil his reputation, so he stabbed his son in the heart. Tahmina, who came to the field to keep them from bloodshed, was too late and Sohrab died on his mourning father's hands.Rustam and Sukhrab (1972), Boris Kimyagarov's movie based on Shahnameh of Firdawsi, Tajikfilm
