Deets about Shilpa Shetty and Richard Gere’s controversial kiss in public
It was on April 15, 2007, when Shilpa Shetty had attended an AIDS-awareness event in Delhi along with Hollywood actor, Richard Gere. During one segment of the event, Richard could be seen repeatedly hugging and kissing Shilpa on the cheeks. This action angered everyone so much that the Rajasthan court had issued a warrant for Shilpa and Richard’s arrest. And a case was registered under sections 292, 293, and 294 of the IPC and other sections related to obscenity.
There were also nationwide protests against Shilpa Shetty and Richard Gere’s actions in the public forum. Later, in November 2011, the Supreme Court transferred the case to the metropolitan magistrate court at Ballard Estate in Mumbai after Shilpa filed a plea about the same. Following this, in February 2017, the actress also applied for discharge, mentioning that the allegations against her were based on why she didn’t protest the American actor showing affection to her at the public forum. However, in her opinion, she mentioned that this would not have lessened her role as a co-conspirator in the alleged crimes.
