In the end, the judge said, ”We have to see the movie and then decide what we”re going to do with you,”” The New York Daily News quoted the actress, as saying.
In the movie, Farahani plays a nurse who treats DiCaprio’’s character, but refrains from her advances, insisting that he first meet her family. In fact she doesn”t even shakes hand with him in the movie.
While her passport has been returned, she still fears that the government might seize it again on her return to her homeland.
“I”m on trial. I”m totally in love with Iran. I have family there. But now, if they want to see me, they have to leave,” she said.
