Indian arrest warrant for Richard Gere over Shilpa Shetty kiss

haha, I wonder why India is such a shitty place, with this sort of reasoning I cant imagine why they cant progress...

Quote:
Gere, 57, kissed Shetty, 31, several times on the cheek at an Aids awareness event in Delhi earlier this month.

The court in Jaipur in Rajasthan state called it "an obscene act", after a local lawyer filed a complaint.

It was not immediately clear how the warrant could affect Gere, who is a frequent visitor to India.


Shetty, who found fame outside India as the winner of Celebrity Big Brother in the UK, has also been asked to appear before the court.

But her spokesman, Dale Bhagwager, said the actress had not received any court order or summons and was currently away visiting temples.

He said Shetty had not done anything wrong.

Bigger issue

"What is there to comment? They were three innocent, natural cute pecks on the cheek," said Mr Bhagwager.

"What can one say, when three pecks can be made into an issue in the land of the Kama Sutra? People should concentrate on the bigger issue of Aids, rather than this."

Photographs of the clinch were splashed across front pages of newspapers in India.

Public displays of affection are still largely taboo in India, and protestors in Mumbai (Bombay) set fire to effigies of Gere following the incident.

Dance scene

Shetty has defended Gere saying that it was all done "in good humour".

"He especially told me to tell the media that he didn't want to hurt any Indian sensibilities," she said.

She said Gere had only been re-enacting a scene from his film Shall We Dance.

Under Indian law, a person convicted of public obscenity faces up to three months in prison, a fine or both.

Gere, star of films such as Chicago and Pretty Woman, is a Buddhist and travels to India frequently to visit the Dalai Lama, who lives in exile in the north of the country.

I think Gere must be happy, now he has an excuse not to go that hellhole anymore, unless he actually liked going to india, which would be stranger than the obscenity law, lol...

during and event for HIV-AIDS awareness in New Delhi.

Re: Indian arrest warrant for Richard Gere over Shilpa Shetty kiss

One has to understand the judicial systems in any nation can be crappy. arrants in Inda can be issued for things like this but the are rarely enforced. I have to add that other judicial systems are no better. In U.S. one person succeeded in suing McDonalds for injuries caused by spilling hot coffee. In nations like Italy and Poland there is like inquisition and people from right (Italy) or left (Poland) are targeted.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results

Although this is grossly out of proportion by western standards, Europe is no less of a mess with what you can and what you can do. Denying the holocaust, disturbance of peace (including flushing your frigging toilet after some hour in Suisse), can all land you in prison in the area known as Western Europe. In addition, impregnating your sister can NOT land you in prison in Germany

Gere will go again. India is where he meets the Dalai Lama.

Geez what a sad and stupid way to waste fire they could be cooking with this fire, but no maybe buring pictures of Gere will make him feel the sting and know he has done a very very bad thing. This is garbage coming from India while we just watch

P.S. Why is it in the East people protest by burning effigies of the "wrong-doer"?? There must be better ways of protesting, unless the fire thing has some voodoo in it.

The lady who spilled coffee on herself had a legit case: she ended up suffering third degree burns and needed skin grafts. You shouldn't need skin grafts after spilling coffee.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
