Alidoosti, who appeared, among other things, in the Oscar-winning film “The Salesman”, has been accused by Iranian authorities of spreading lies about the protests in the country. The arrest was said to have taken place after she posted a post on Instagram expressing her solidarity with a man executed in Iran, at the same time not showing “any documents consistent with her claim”.
Taraneh Alidoosti had earlier published a photo of her without a headscarf, holding a paper with the text “Woman, Life, Freedom”, which is the slogan used in the protests in the country.
