After Richard Gere and Shilpa Shetty, Aishwarya Rai with Kissing Controversy

I have earlier posted some articles on the open kissing of Ricahrd Gere and Shilpa Shetty at a charity event for HIV/AIDS campaign. The issue has created a huge uproar in the media and made people crazy regarding the incident. Even an Indian court has already sent arrest warrant for both the actors. Now, another kissing incident is in the lime light. The last year hit movie Dhoom 2 has screened a kissing scene between Aishearya Rai and Hrithik Roshan. Recently Aishwarya Rai has been given a summon asking her to appear before the court over the issue. Gulf Times reported:

Rai was ordered to appear before a district court over a scene in which she is kissed lightly on the cheek.
Her Dhoom-II co-star Hrithik Roshan and the owners of a cinema which screened the action film have also been summoned to Muzaffarpur court in the eastern state of Bihar on May 30.
“The court also sent notices to the Bihar government for allowing screening of the film despite its ‘obscene’ content,” a court official said.
He said the judge handed out the orders after a lawyer argued the film “offended public sensibility.”
The 33-year-old Rai, who was crowned Miss World in 1994 and married Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan last week, has not responded to the court order, government officials said in the state capital Patna.

Moreover, a notice was also given to Bihar government as the scene was screened in Bihar. Aishwarya Rai has got married to Abhishek Bachchan last week though a very private affair with the presence of some selective guests in the Bachchan house Prateeksha. Now, it is yet to see how Aishwarya Rai will face the situation.
