    shilpa is a very sexyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy


    shilpa shetty is very bad


    I completely agree with what Priyanka and Shivani Sharma have said. The younger generations in India should not have been making it a big deal as desired by those bunch of good-for-nothing 'mindless chickens' who are taking it to the streets.


    Why has it crossed out Paris Hilton and written prostitutes next to it?
    If that's supposed to be a joke it's way out of order and completely not funny.


    Guys who cares..shilps must have sexed up thousands of men(dont forget south movies :-) ) which means if richard does this little act it should be fine after all who in india does not fantasize over bollywood females and shilpa is one of them.chill guys




    While the reaction was over the top, when I saw the video of Gere forcing himself on Shilpa, I was disgusted. She clearly didn't want this guy kissing her or bending her over backwards, she was wriggling to turn away. Who the heck is Gere to forcibly kiss a woman? He looked like an old goat.

    It reminded me of Adrian Brody kissing Halle Berry a few years ago at the Oscars. Totally out of line. Both men deserved to be slapped.


    As an Indian citizen in the US for the past few years, I personally don't feel "offended". But what Mr Gere failed to see is that Indian society is still relatively conservative (or, at least, large swathes of it -- and that number translates into millions of people). I guess what ticked people off was the whole "swooping" and bear-hug combo. It is essential that a Buddhist like Mr Gere learn to draw boundaries in social theaters that he may not be familiar with. If this were a private gathering of like-minded socialite, no one would have bothered. But to do what he did in front of thousands of folks is very uncomfortable and upsetting for a lot of people, in a society in which public display of affection is generally frowned upon (I am, of course, not referring to the urban, hip crowd).
