When Shilpa Shetty Got Embroiled in Controversy

Twelve years ago, Shilpa Shetty became the talk of the town when she was subjected to racist abuse on the popular UK reality show "Celebrity Big Brother". But she went on to win the show. The same year she was hit with more controversy when Hollywood actor Richard Gere kissed her at a charity event. Here's a throwback to Shetty's comment on both incidents. #tbt

    Ppl in Bollywood see racism only when they are in foreign. In India mostly they are blind, dumb and deaf.

    Dummy. A dumb dumb woman who travelled a save, cautious middle ground and lost an ocean of Support in her cowardice. revenue from her fans is more important than challenging rank ignorance enforced by a cowardly male dominated prejudiced, power structure (Patriarchy) in India. What an excellent missed opportunity by her to have spoken out.

    Im glad she spoke well but I think internal racism does occur in India - North indians looking down on South Indians, making fun of all languages but Hindi, poking fun at Sardars , stereotyping certain cultures, ethnicities, having an obssesion with fair complexion, etc...the list goes on...It's a sad reality...

    So according to this dumb reporter, the definition of a liberal country is that a country muz allow its women to kiss whomever and whenever they want and thats real liberalism😆😆😆😆...I wonder why Shilpa didnt hand him a dictionary at that point of time????

    JOHALL nehru was a Pandit who wanted a state for him and his mistress but didnt get it the mistake a new india made was electing him as the new leader if they chose anyone else we might never had three wars or so many people die on both sides alas thats history what remains is the right of people who have suffered from the INABILITY OF INDO/PAK BI LATERAL TALKS OR NO TALKS question arise do pak india realy want so many to die before they come to senses, there are countries advising both countries to keep the wars going as it keeps the five security countries +friends FACTORIES OPEN , so if you want to kill each other and give all your next fifty years INCOME TO OTHERS ,please continue to be as STUPID AS YOU BEEN FOR PAST 73 YEARS.
