People’s Artist of Russia Dmitry Nazarov has published a new video on his YouTube channel. Accompanying himself on the guitar, the actor performed poems of his own composition called “One Pain”. The new video was released amid reports of Nazarov’s removal from filming in the remake of 12 Chairs.
“We have no flood, no conflagration,
Everything is in order, but there is no peace in the soul,
I feel on myself and those around me a plastic bag stuck around.
The pain is one for the whole state,
Whether you are on the left or on the right, even if you are used to being silent, like a stump.
Everyone who is right and wrong, everyone wants glory for the country,
And from this the power is on its side, ”the song says.
Then Nazarov sings that the neighbor calls the lyrical hero of his verse a traitor to the Motherland, and then apologizes to him.
“My neighbor screams that I am a traitor to the Motherland,
And drunk, he says that everything is wrong,
That in vain the field of life was passed,
And when he wakes up, he wheezes again that I’m a fool.
Earlier, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported that Dmitry Nazarov was removed from the main role in the new film adaptation of 12 Chairs. This publication was told by the director of the film Peter Zelenov. In the remake, Nazarov was supposed to play Kisa Vorobyaninov, and Dmitry Nagiev – Ostap Bender. According to Zelenov, the artist’s anti-war statements were a “big blow” for him. He called himself a patriot and said that “he was not happy with everything that happened.” The actor, according to the director, is already aware of this decision.
In mid-January, Dmitry Nazarov, along with his wife, Honored Artist of Russia Olga Vasilyeva, was fired from the Moscow Art Theater. Chekhov, where he served for more than 20 years. On January 14, Vadim Vernik, deputy director of the theater for public relations, told RBC that this happened after the artist’s communication with artistic director Konstantin Khabensky.
Earlier, Komsomolskaya Pravda also reported on checks in Moscow theaters after Dmitry Nazarov’s interview with Ksenia Larina. The artist said at the end of last year that many actors left the country after the start of the military operation. The Ministry of Culture denied the connection between these events. The department told RBC that the checks are related to measures “to control the implementation of labor discipline” after the abolition of remote work.
