Mumbai Court Discharges Shilpa Shetty In infamous Richard Gere kissing

The Mumbai Court has stated that there was no evidence of obscenity in Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty's 2007 kissing incident with Richard Gere. 

In 2007, Shilpa Shetty was the most controversial part, as during an AIDS awareness programme in Rajasthan, Hollywood actor Richard kissed her on the cheek. The bombing event in 2017 had left the singing sensation in difficult circumstances. when a suicide bomber killed several people when an explosion was detonated at Ariana’s concert. She showed courage by discussing the trauma and all of it in public. Once people started pointing out that her physical appearance had changed sometime last year, she experienced body shaming.

On Tuesday, a comprehensive order for the same was made accessible. In an effort to construct charges against Shilpa under IPC Section 292 for obscenity, the Information Technology Act’s provisions, and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, the prosecution pleaded with the magistrate, according to PTI. The actress’s attorney, Prashant Patil, rejected the arguments, arguing that “the lower court’s order was proper and a legitimate one.”

According to, the court ruled on April 3 that Shetty’s obscenity was not obvious because she “had not kissed, but was kissed.” In a statement, they stated that “a woman being touched on the street, in a public place, or while travelling by public transportation cannot be deemed an accuser or participant to the point of mental culpability, nor can she be held accountable for an illegal omission that would subject her to prosecution.”

The claim of indecent representation of women was also addressed by the court. They clarified that the Act prohibits “the representation in any manner of the figure of a woman, her form or body, or any part thereof, in such a manner as to be indecent, or disparaging to, or demeaning women, or are likely to deprave, corrupt, or impair the public morality or morals.” The 47-year-old actor was then shown by the court to have never done such an act. There is no evidence to support accusations against the accused after taking into account all the records and police files.
