Just before going on stage, Shilpa Shetty was discussing with Richard Gere his movie 'Shall We Dance'. When he went onstage, he tried striking an impromptu dance pose from the film. She didn't realize what he was doing. He later told her that since he cannot speak Hindi, but wanted to communicate with the truckers, he tried to do something entertaining for them? in a Bollywood song and dance way.
Shilpa has always stood for her dignity and is very proud of her culture and to be an Indian. If anybody would have over-stepped the boundaries with her, she would have reacted there and then.
And what the big deal about the kissing? Haven't we seen anyone being kissed on the cheeks on television? People are over reacting because the channels have been showing the clippings over and over again. Shilpa went to the event for a cause, but sadly the real issue of AIDS awareness has been totally sidelined and what's being highlighted are innocent kisses.
