Shilpa Shetty-Richard Gere Kiss Photos and Video

Updated on September 17, 2011

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."

    All of u cant blame on someone on wat they were not expecting.. like Shilpa..she didnt know tat Gere would kiss her like tat i mean she wasnt expecting tat, it happened all of sudden n she cant just go wild n angry at gere on the stage wit lots of ppl down there looking at them or just leave the show.. she smiled n tried to b comfortable(but m sure she wasnt feeling comfortable inside her).. coz she respects ppl out there n yeah he didnt kiss her on her lips so wats the big deal!! Shilpa and Richard u guys dont have to feel bad abt wat others tell abt.. You guys should just be the way you are unless u change urself(inner)..And yeah Gere guess he did a bit too much.. kissing on cheek n hugging would be fine on the stage but tat going down thing..eh eh.. Gere..this is India..!!

    Some people here seem to be very proud of the event. There are a few shameless people criticizing the Indian Culture and the Indians. I would call upon those people who love these activities to come and participate in a function our NGO Bharat Bachao Sangathan can organise for these hungry people. We will arrange for some men and a few women of the same grade of people who wish to participate. The men will kiss the willing ladies and the ladies will kiss the willing men at an open function on the stage to be covered by the entire media around the world. The only condition is that the unmarried people should bring their parents with them and the married ones should bring their spouse, kids, parents and in-laws with them.

    If people are ready, we can organise the event on 19th November 2009 (International Men's Day). Send me a mail.

    Wow!! I am so disgusted by the comments here!! Its ok for guys to say i want her body or other vulgar references to poor Shilpa, but in the same line say how disgusting she is for kissing an actor!! People are so sick. Please women... find out who your husbands really are, making you stay true to them while they ogle of some half naked girl thinking about what they would like to do with them! SICK.

    If no one noticed...it was all staged as well. The set guy told them what to do and they both had to do it just so that all of us would be writing about it right now! Which means we saw the clip and photos. unofortunately not the entire clip is being watched.

    The amount of sexual content (not sex) in bollywood movies is disgusting. The way they dance and dress is such a bad influence on young girls and young men. Men are expecting hot, sexy scantily dressed women to date but dont want to marry them. And girls think it is ok! Girls think it is ok to wear miniskirts and tiny bathing suits or wear their sarees to show off as much skin as possible even in situaions where it is uncalled for. The innuendo is so clear in bollywood films with actresses wearing white and dancing in the rain so all forms and shapes and parts are clearly visible.

    But here, two actors who have kissed hundred of other actors in movies and dressed sexually or danced or had sex in their films can't even kiss (on the friggin cheek!!!) to educate ignorant people about aids!! No one should apologize!1! Maybe if Indians didnt have so much non marital sex and only kissed, they wouldnt be the country with the highest population of HIV and AIDS carriers in the world, even more than all of Africa (a continent).

    Wow, a lot of people need to give their heads a shake and focus on what is important in this world and leave poor actors and actresses alone. Not that they care what you all think anyways....

    Shilpa is an actress. Reaching to that level she slept with many guy, her earning manily depend on the nights she spend in beds with guys. She had fuked many people and earn lot of money. Kissing in front of people doest matter her. If u offer her sound money she will fuck her self in fornt of people.

    well , i guess , it is no good to that extent . if Gere wanted to make the the point clear that AIDS is not transferred throuh a kiss , then only one and that at the hand would do it , the remaining was vulgur . Shelpa was literally helpless and there was nothing which she could do . she couldn't slap him , nor she could she resist the smile to lesson the gravity of the situation and she wasn't expecting it either as was dipicted by the words " YAY THODA ZIYADA HO GAYA " .

    we should not make it as a big issue, its common for the film industry people. and richard gare is not familier with our culture he behaved as per his culture/practice. as a matured person i would like to say we should not involve in film industry culture. if any political leader/rich person/actor will do the same we will not say anyhting, y we should blame to others.

    we have to think before saying somehting it reflects the image of the country.

    There are acts permitted on stage, and some behind the backdrop.T he exceptions are konark and khaju,there are people who want to drape clothes around the huge porn.RG's aggressive handling of the situ and shilpa happily enjoying the tight hug has provoked many.Simplify, avoid such in future.

    PR stunts are not improptu. Shilpa Shetty along with Richard Gere must have planned this stunt. But the outcome is an outrage. By whom? The masses, movie fans. Others wouldn't care or less kiss Shilpa or take her into an alley who cares. But it is people that think of movie stars as their extended family who always look at them with awe like they are gods or something, never learning that its all business no different than the business Madam DC is or Shah Riza is conducting. It is called escortbusiness. What is the big deal whether it is an Indian, an Arab or an American. People should go home, relax and enjoy the show or look for something else that is productive to do than attending a condom blast and then get upset over a kiss before some people who think of themselves as they were "untouchable", but by all means doing it all the time with strangers in the dark.

    Though the matter is now becoming an event of the past but still it has its significance and people are l talking about this .Today we were discussing this issue many said that it was all ok ! but in my opinion what they did It could not be termed as an act of rationality and prudence .Richard Gere must not forget an old saying i.e Do in room what the Romans do . At least it is not the common practice in India to kiss a lady in public .

    I can not say I am always proud to be an American but right now I am proud not to be an Indian. The way some of you talk of people of different economic and educational backgrounds is absurd! Morals come from the soul and not your education or bank account. You remind me of 14 year old school boys who have just seen their first sexy picture! Grow up! it was a kiss on the cheek! You have dirty minds! You should pray to be cleansed. The poor uneducated are not less than you. God created everyone. Are you greater than God? To look down on his creations?

    I think the violence and sensationalism that followed the incident was the doing of self proclaimed moral police who are a minority in the society.I find the burp commercial more obscene than the concerned incident.When Shilpa didn't have any grudges against richard Gere herself then why should we jump in with the flags of values and morals ? Moreover,this is eventually going to help Shilpa shetty as any publicity is a good publicity when it comes to stars.

    I think it is good, Shilpa must be happy about this, coz at least she kissed a male films star rather than kissing, shemale films stars kissing her in filming works in india. and this is so natural, and in films these type of kissing is nothing.

    Shelly 10 years ago

    What i think most people are forgetting is that Shilpa Shetty was fine with the kiss. I dont think India is as degressive as people are making it out to be, since we do have bollywood films which portray the act of kissing quite often. It is only the so called fundamentalists who are blowing this out of proportion. If Shilpa feels that what Richard Gere did was not out of line and she did not feel molested in any way than the media should stop making a mountain out of a molehill. If this is considered something that offends indian morals, as many of you have pointed out, I suggest India get rid of the countless Bollywood films that portray acts that are FAR WORSE than that shown in the video. If we are not prepared to do that, than I suggest we leave Shilpa and Richard alone!

    I think this episode they had done before,that's why shilpa let her body to be caress,and accept what ever Richard done to her,may be she never taste what she get from Richard.On Richard side this the way to show best dream never come always.Shilpa must know her prestigous in the public it show her lack of civic consciousness.

    HA HA they said the moral fabric of society has decayed because women have not lived upto their expected norms of female self representation. Where were they who are buring effigies and shouting obsceneties when a police man raped a fifteen year old in the police beat booth at Gate way of India.

    Where were they when a woman was raped in the moving train in broad day light. Where was their sensibility and Indian culture.

    Aren't these the same men who whistle at the pelvic gyrations in the bollywood movies. Who ogle at every young woman walking on the orad. Who thrust themselves on female passangersin the crowded buses. Aren't these the same men who whistle and pinch women's butts in public places.

    Who are these men. And How come they are deciding what is obscenity?

    These are the men who feel emasculated due to hanging global economies. Who have no control over their economic lives due to growing unemployment and inflation. So all they can control is a woman's sbody, exuality, her self representation.

    People stop writing your culture and nationalities on women's bodies.

    Shilpa you do not have to appologies for anything.

    Give these brutes an opportunity and they will be more than willing to molest any women leave alone their mothers and sisters.

    i am from sri lanka. why are these indians making such a big fuss over it ? the gods have given males and females sexual attractions to breed. so kissing is part of the breeding program. by the way to Piyanka, who says that sri lanka is not known around the world, we are the ones who came to cricket world cup finals in 2007 - if you know anything about world events.

    I am a pretty open minded person. However, when it comes to my modesty..self-respect and dignity I would say I am careful with those things bc afterall they are your reputation and so very easy to lose. So, in this case I would say if it was a simple peck on the cheek maybe..but I think he did just a tad bit more than that..he looked like he was about to start making love with her with those kisses.

    But who's right is it anyhow to protect ones self respect only Shilpa ? And Richard Gere to I believe should have been a little more conciderate of her culture. So, no big deal. I am sure he wont do that again.

    By the way is he married ?

    Ok,

    I was reading all of the comments and let me say what i think.

    First of all, Who ever making a big deal out of this kiss -let me ask you this,Have you watched the indian movies latly? i dont think so. Because you cant watch these movies with your family ( what about indian culture now?) in movies it can be okay?? if you watch movies nowadays you can see more than kiss on cheek so it is going to be good for the indian culture?

    About the kiss- i dont think it was just kiss because you can kiss on hand, cheek one or two times but not so many times ,if you see that then people think it might be something else -thats what gere did ,he could 've kiss once or twice but when people in india saw this they made a big deal out of that!!

    And for the people complain about the western countries - If you dont like ,or want western country styles then why dont you wear saree all the time? why you wearing all kind of western style clothes if you can adopt everything else then why not this??

    So let me conclude with this -somebody on the previous posting said we have more than a kiss on cheek to worry about ,yes that is true ,there is alot of thing going on in india -killing innocent people ,molesting kids,rape ,AIDS , Water problem, it was just few of them there is a long list so Why dont all the Narrow minded people go behind that??? SO GET A LIFE?

    Thats it -BYe -bye now

    I see few comments like "we are in 21st century", "have you not seen porn movies": Just because I have a plasma TV and can browse web on my cell(21st century) or watch porn movies does not mean I can go naked on roads. Ask a kombai tribe and they would ask you the same question why should I not roam naked on roads? Now, which country will allow this. Just because few countries allow ppl to kiss in public does not mean all should follow the same???

    "Two people working for good cause", "Doing so much for a country": That is the reason we respect them. Now a person throws a billion dollars and ask a country to allow him/her to have sex in public? Will he/she be allowed???

    "Politicians have other issues to take care of": During the time of 911 or 711 were no tickets issued for breaking traffic rules. Or just because your dad is dying means you will neglect your children? Every issue has to be taken care, if someone is ignoring its upto ppl to take it to concerned authorities.

    "Movies"; I have an option to not watch a movie if it requires parental guidance. The so called media gives you enough reviews about a movie. Now no sane person would expect a girl being smooched when I attend an AIDs awareness program??? Are we to celebrate in the name of ppl who are on the footsteps of death???

    Middle eastern and south eastern countries put together have more population than population of western countries. So why should these countries follow the behaviour of western countries?

    On one hand, the adage, "when in Rome, do as the Romans do" makes sense... Why upset the sensibilities of a nation's traditions. On the other hand, you have two admirable public figures helping a good cause...

    if they think a kiss on the cheek can be related to as something from a sexual nature, then india really needs to watch its own movies!!!!!!! for example RED (the dark side) and don't tell me the scenes where aftab is sexually snogging the face off celina jaitley it was just a camera trick, yeah right!! GET WITH THE 21st CENTURY INDIA AND WATCH A BIT MORE BOLLYWOOD MOVIES!!!

BUT THE SAME SHOULD BE IF NONE ENGLISH PEOPLE COME TO OUR COUNTRY THEY SHOULD SHOW US RESPECT AND ABIDE BY OUR CULTURES NOT EXPECT US TO LET THEM BEHAVE AS IF THEY ARE STILL LIVING IN THERE OWN COUNTRYS AND NOT BUILD THEM MOSQES IN ENGLAND EILLEN

    this is pathetic, it was just a bit of fun, if shilpa has a problem with it then ok maybe, but to me she also saw it as a laugh, our countries are constantly trying to cause more friction between our races than what there already is...its so sick that people who think they're was somthing wrong with a kiss on the cheek, have a say over a country...they are acting like immature little children

    Feel shame for Priya's comment that they were entertaining people...BULLSHIT..I am also Srilankan...Thnx Namal for being a vry understanding person... I do apologise for bull shititng priya

    Its disgusting... The kiss was like kissing your partner... Moreover, this is not a matter of ppl in India is stupid or not... Its a matter of behaviour... Richard Gere was wrong to kiss like this not only coz he did in public also for kissing someone like kissing his partner... He kissed in the way like a guy kisses his gal... My guy kisses me like this whn we meet up after sometime.....

    No matter in Indian movies kiss is a very common. Here, the way he is kissing & holding her , seems its highly offensive. He is kissing all over her cheek & she is screaming like she is intensed... Both should come forward and apologise to public.
