Actress Shilpa Shetty to feature on CNN's 'Talk Asia'

MUMBAI: Indian actress Shilpa Shetty will feature on CNN's chat show Talk Asia on 12 May at 8:30 pm and on 13 May at 6:30 pm. She reveals why she is unrepentant about her public kiss with actor Richard Gere, what she learnt from her time in the Big Brother household, thoughts on her love life, film career and more.

Reaction to Gere’s prolonged kiss ranged from amusement to outrage, but Shetty is admant that the extreme reactions from some do not reflect her country: “I would describe the ‘some’ as a lunatic fringe. And that is so not the sensibility of the majority of India”.

The star also explains why she is relaxed at the thought of a potential six year jail sentence in the wake of the controversy before venting her frustration as to why effigies of Gere have been burned: “I don’t know if Richard is going to come back to the country, the losers…it’s us again as he was only trying to help us out.” As to those pursuing the litigations, she asks: “I want to actually ask them what they’ve done for us, what have they done for this country?”

Shetty also talks about her time in the UK’s Big Brother household, where she reached “The lowest point in my life”. Despite this, she is convinced that to have walked out “Would be such a loser thing to do, to give up” and that her final victory “Was a huge victory as an Indian to have won something abroad”.

Satinder also asks Shetty about her success in relationships, quizzing her on boyfriends, what dating her would entail and why she ultimately wants “A happy marriage and whatever it takes to achieve that"
