Shilpa Shetty-Richard Gere Kiss Photos and Video

Photos of Shilpa Shetty and Gere Richards Controversial Kiss

We've always known Shilpa Shetty is a pretty woman, but now we have an official endorsement from a visibly smitten Richard Gere.

At Seena Taan Ke, an AIDS awareness function organized in Delhi on Sunday to benefit truck drivers, Gere and Shetty spoke to the vulnerable community about the dangers and misconceptions of AIDS.

Gere, looking more than a trifle dizzy, didn't seem content merely to mention that HIV can't be passed on through a kiss on the cheek -- deciding to make his point by kissing first Shilpa's hand, then hugged her, kissed her cheek, and finally bent over the surprised actress to give her a big kiss, Hollywood-style.

While Shetty laughed it off with a poised 'yeh thoda zyaada ho gaya' ('this was a bit much') to the truck drivers, they seem to have agreed. It is reported that audiences expressed distaste at this behavior by a visiting celebrity. Some sections of the audience are apparently asking for an apology from both actors.

Bollywood superstar Shilpa Shetty has been in films since she was a teenager, bagging awards and accolades along the way. She's a black belt karate champ and is considered to have the best body in Bollywood. She's a bit worried about the lack of gym facilities in the House.

She says...

"I have zero expectations. The only thing I really hope to keep is my self-respect and my dignity."
