Richard Gere Bemused By Kiss Storm
Public displays of affection are taboo in India and Gere's actions resulted in crowds burning effigies of the 57-year-old actor in Mumbai, Varanasi and New Delhi. Arrest warrants were issued for both Gere and Shetty early yesterday after a citizen filed a complaint, accusing the couple of committing an "obscene act".
However, Gere is stunned by the reaction. In a statement, he says, "My clumsy attempt at a Shall We Dance dance move was a naive misread of Indian customs. To be honest, this recent media storm has taken me by complete surprise."
