The 2007 compassion event in New Delhi, which saw Hollywood star Richard Gere kissing Shilpa Shetty, doesn’t seem to leave the Bollywood actress. Shetty, acting through her lawyer, Prasant Patil, has sought the clearance of a request contesting the January order of a Ballard Pier, Mumbai, magistrate court releasing her from a profanity case, then from the incident.
In April, the Alwar, Rajasthan, police had met the sessions court against the magistrate’s declaration and stated in its appeal that the magistrate had erred in releasing Shilpa and that her act of kissing or permitting her to be kissed in a public place amounted to profanity. The police had asserted that if the court evaluated the FIR, it would find that a prima facie case was made against the actresses s. In her reply, Shetty remarked that she was a patient of opposing proceedings and harassment at the hands of the plaintiff and that she, as an artist, had constantly behaved responsibly in public. She also alleged that the plaintiff was moving toward the court for cheap promotion.
The complainant, who had moved toward the Alwar police in 2007, had argued that Shilpa did not object while being kissed by the Hollywood star. Shilpa contradicted this charge by noting in her request that it did not make her a conspiracy or perpetual tor of any crime.
On the work front, Shilpa was last glimpsed in the Bollywood film Nikamma which captioned her recovery on the big screen. Next up, she has Rohit Shetty’s police universe in the pipeline. Shilpa will be in the web series centred around the Indian Police Force. The show, also starring Sidharth Malhotra and Vivek Oberoi will premiere digital cameras entirely by year-end.
