Richard Gere‘s been very active in promoting AIDS awareness in India lately, and with Bollywood actress and Celebrity Big Brother winner Shilpa Shetty having launched her own AIDS charity in February, it only seemed like a matter of time before Hollywood and Bollywood started working together for the cause. The two were at an AIDS awareness function recently, but that wasn’t the most talked-about occurrence that night. It looks like some groups in India were outraged when Richard swept up Shilpa in his arms and gave her a big kiss.

Right-wing Hindus burned effigies of the 57-year-old Gere in India’s entertainment hub of Mumbai and organized street rallies in the capital New Delhi one day after Gere’s public display of affection, seen as taboo here.

Shilpa wasn’t safe from criticism either, and some people also burned effigies of her. Richard has already apologized and even Shilpa isn’t making a big deal out of the whole thing. I’m just gonna say that Richard should have been more careful with the way he behaves in other countries and will also hope that this controversy won’t affect his projects. Loads more interesting comments about the entire hoopla can be found here and here.
