Controversial Gere, Shetty kiss lingers

Authorities detain wanted Bollywood star

It’s the kiss that lingers.

Five months after Richard Gere locked lips with Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty in a spontaneous display of affection, immigration authorities at Mumbai Airport briefly detained Shetty last week en route to a Berlin perf, saying she was still wanted for obscenity charges in connection with the April embrace at an AIDS awareness benefit.

Seems a ruling by the Indian supreme court permitting Shetty to travel didn’t appear in immigration computer system.

Shetty’s camp is still hoping to kiss the whole thing goodbye.
