shilpa-shetty.jpgAfter her win in the British television show Celebrity Big Brother, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty announced the launch of an AIDS charity organization that intends to promote awareness of the disease, and education for both those afflicted with HIV and the greater general public. In Leicester, where the organization was launched, she tells her fans,

“India is the second largest affected country in the world with AIDS. So I think it’s important to do something about it and it’s every person’s right to live with dignity in our country, even if it’s a person who is HIV positive.”

Shetty herself has been the focus of controversy recently, after Big Brother housemates Jade Goody, singer Jo O’Meara, and model Danielle Lloyd were seen bullying the Indian actress on the popular reality show and sparking international concerns about racism. The 31-year-old still emerged triumphant after her win on TV, and an exclusive invitation to Britain’s House of Commons, courtesy of Labour MP Keith Vaz. He was the one of the first people who took an interest in racial issues and brought the media’s attention to the ill treatment of Shetty in the Big Brother house.
