She appeared in a short French black and white video with 30 other actors to promote the Caesars, (French Oscars), in which she was nominated for her character in the famous comedy French film, Si Tu Meurs, Je Te Tue (If You Die, I'll Kill You).

For the promo, the actors had to take off a part of their clothes to commit their body and soul to their art. Farahani bared her right breast in the video and stated,

"I will put flesh to your dreams."

She also posed nude in the French Madame Figaro and when the video was released, Golshifteh faced her worst nightmare. The Iranian government made announcements that Farahani was banished from the country stating,

"Iran does not need actors or artists like you. You may offer your artistic services somewhere else"

She got banned with much criticism and harsh judgments based on her character and morality. She left Iran and moved to France after that. There she met her second husband, handsome French actor, Louis Garrel and married in 2013.
