Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty was spotted kissing in public again, and this time, it's was for a noble cause. She won the hearts of the people at the Global Diversity Award 2008 function in London by raising fund for a charity with her kisses.
She bagged the Global Diversity award along with formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton for bringing about understanding of diversity. At the event, she helped the organisers raise 63,000 pounds for the Silver Star Appeal, a charity that runs mobile diabetes assessment units. She declared during the charity auction, a dinner with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown at Wembley, that the winner would get a kiss from her. As expected, a young admirer ended up paying 12,500 pounds for the dinner. As promised, Shilpa kissed the winner three times on the cheek.
She had earlier made it clear that the kiss would be on the cheek, as she didn't want her effigies to be burnt again. She had earlier received lots of criticism for kissing Hollywood actor Richard Gere on stage at an AIDS awareness function.
Shilpa seems to have learnt her lessons!
