Richard Gere's Conterversial kiss to silpa shetty

Richard Gere kissing incident
Shetty was kissed several times by Richard Gere during an AIDS-awareness event. The pair had appeared at a press conference in New Delhi as part of a campaign to preach safe sex to truck drivers in India, the country with the world's largest number of HIV sufferers. However, following the kiss, members of the right-wing Hindu nationalist group Shiv Sena beat burning effigies of Gere with sticks. However, most people preferred to set fire to the glamorous shots of Shetty. People demanded an apology from her and threatened to ban her movies in the state.

Similar protests broke out in other cities, including Varanasi, Hinduism's holiest city, and in the northern town of Meerut, where crowds of hundreds of thousands chanted "Down with Shilpa Shetty!" Star News Office was also attacked.
