Richard Gere kisses Shilpa Shetty in public
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
April 17, 2007
This is proof of Shilpa Shetty’s growing stature as an international celebrity. It was on Sunday the 15th and the occasion was an AIDS awareness campaign organized by the Truck Driver’s association of India at Delhi. It was named the Seena Taan Ke programme and was aimed at encouraging safe sexual practices amongst truck drivers.
The special guests at the function were Sunny Deol, Shilpa Shetty and the most important person, Richard Gere, international AIDS awareness ambassador.

What happened towards the end of the function was hardly something that encouraged safe sexual practices. After giving quite a detailed explanation about how AIDS was a killer and about how AIDS doesn’t spread by touch, Shilpa called Richard onto stage. Richard went upon stage took Shilpa’s hand, kissed it and then proceeded to hug her and bent over her before planting a kiss on her cheek.

A visibly shaken and flustered Shilpa Shetty managed to put up a smile and saved the situation from going awry. However the audience present at the venue has not taken the incident lightly. Many people have demanded an apology from Richard Gere for his conduct. Meanwhile, the clip of this act by the Hollywood star has been shown on news channels across the country and according to reports a few effigies have already been burnt. If Richard has plans to make similar campaigns in any other part of India he better call them off; it simply won’t be safe.

And, the biggest joke of the entire episode- some people have been heard demanding a public apology from Shipla Shetty for her conduct. God alone knows what these people expected the poor lady to do; slap Richard on stage- well, that would have been some news.
