Shilpa Shetty was a participant in a Rajasthan event in 2007. Richard Gere, a Hollywood star, was also present. In the end, Richard kissed Shilpa in public, prompting a lawsuit against the actress. After 15 years, the actress was acquitted of charges of obscenity and indecency by a Mumbai court.
Shilpa Shetty was described as a victim by Metropolitan Magistrate Ketki Chavan. He claimed that the actress was like an element for Richard, and that’s when things started to go wrong. The magistrate stated that the allegations against Shilpa are unfounded based on the police report and documents. In this case, the actress is exonerated of all charges and offenses. None of the alleged wrongdoings in the complaint are sufficient. Because the accused’s current work has not been made clear in any document, he cannot be prosecuted under section 34 of the IPC.

Shilpa and Richard were charged by the Judicial Magistrate First Class in Mundawar, Rajasthan. There was also a demand to file a police report against both of them. This FIR was filed under the Indian Penal Code sections 292, 293, and 294 as well as the Information Technology and Incident Representation of Women Act. The case was transferred to Mumbai by the Supreme Court in 2017, and it was heard by the Metropolitan Magistrate.
Shilpa Shetty had asked advocate Madhukar Dalvi to acquit her of offenses under sections 239 and 245 of the Criminal Procedure Code. Shilpa stated in her application that she did not become a participant in any conspiracy or crime because she did not object to Richard’s kiss. Shilpa’s request was approved under section 239 of the Act. Simultaneously, the application under section 245 was denied because no provision for discharge existed in this case.
