Iran bans Golshifteh Farahani from visiting homeland after topless magazine shoot

Iran has banned actress Golshifteh Farahani from returning home after she posed topless for a French news magazine.
Farahani posed for Madame Le Figaro magazine as a symbolic protest against strictures on women in Iran. The actress posted her picture on her Facebook page too.

“I was told by a Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guide official that Iran does not need any actors or artists and I may offer her artistic services somewhere else,” she was quoted by Britain’s as Telegraph as saying.
“Publishing of photographs of the deplorable Golshifteh Farahani on the Internet shows the ugly face of cinemas behind the scenes,” Dubai based news channel Al Arabiya News quoted Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency.
