Golshifteh Farahani is an Iranian actress, musician and singer.
In January 2012, it was reported that Golshifteh would not be welcome in her homeland after posing nude in the French Madame Figaro.
Britain's Daily Telegraph reported that government officials told Golshifteh that "Iran does not need actors or artists like you. You may offer your artistic services somewhere else."
A picture from the shoot on her Facebook page initiated a lively debate about her behavior. She also appeared topless in a short black-and-white film by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, called Corps et Âmes, or Bodies and Souls.
