Shilpa Shetty got discharged after 15 years in Richard Gere ‘Kissing’ Case

A Mumbai court on Tuesday discharged Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty in a 15-year-old obscenity case involving Hollywood megastar Richard Gere.

Shilpa Shetty a Bollywood renowned actress always stays in discussion due to her fitness, movies and personal life got released from the prolonged 15 years old obscenity case involving Hollywood megastar Richard Gere.

Ballard Pier Court Metropolitan Magistrate Ketaki M. Chavan, while clearing the actress, noted in her order, that she had perused the case records particularly the complaint, and found that Shilpa Shetty was the victim of the alleged act by Gere.

This awkward incident took place in a public charity programme for AIDS awareness where the American star kissed Shilpa Shetty on stage. A person in 2007 have filled the case.


Chavan further said that not a single element of any of the alleged offences are satisfied in the complaint against the actress, and no documents annexed with the chargesheet disclosed any act on her part to bring it within the purview of Section 34 (common intent) of the IPC.

There was no ground on the allegation that was raised against the actress. After considering the records and hearing both sides it was satisfied that the charges against Shilpa Shetty completely have no ground and so the case got dismissal.

The controversial and headline grabbing incident involved Gere holding a surprised Shetty in his arms, arching over her and pecking her a couple of times in full public view at the AIDS awareness event.

There were few more complain on the same case was filed by Bhoop Singh before a Rajasthan’s Alwar invoking offences under the IPC, IT Act and Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act after which a FIR was lodged, besides another complaint in Rajasthan and one in Uttar Pradesh.

The cases were transferred to the Mumbai magistrate court in 2017 by Supreme Court Direction in a plea by Shilpa Shetty.

Seeking a discharge from the case, she said the only allegation against her was that she did not protest when Gere kissed her, but that does not make her a ‘conspirator’ or ‘perpetrator’ to the alleged offence.

Shilpa Shetty have clearly stated that allegation on her was basely, that she has not protested the gesture of Mr. Gere kissed her, this doesn’t make her a ‘conspirator’ or ‘perpetrator.’ She also claimed that she was being targeted dur to her celeb status.
