BROADWAY ACTOR BOBBY ABID ON RICHARD GERE AND SHILPA SHETTY

A court in Jaipur has issued a non bailable arrest warrant against Hollywood actor Richard Gere for "indulging in an obscene act" when he planted kisses on Indian actor Shilpa Shetty during an AIDS function in Delhi. The court, after hearing complainant Poonam Chand Bhandari, and watching the original video recording of the function showing Gere kissing Shilpa, prima facie found him guilty. "The court has asked police to arrest and produce him before the court May 5," advocate Bhandari told IANS here. The court also issued summons to Shilpa Shetty asking her to be present in the court May 5, Bhandari said. The statements of Gere and Shilpa will be recorded on that day. Bhandari had filed a complaint April 14 in the court accusing both the film personalities of committing "an obscene act" in a public place under the Indian Penal Code.Under the IPC the accused are liable for imprisonment for a term extending to three months or fine or both.
Actor Bobby Abid
Times Square Gossip caught up with one of Broadway's hottest Indian Actor, BOBBY ABID and he has some things to say about the Richard Gere and Shilpa Shetty WILD KISS DRAMA. Bobby Said, "Bollywood and Hollywood actors are human beings. We all have been strangers in a strange land and perhaps have made innocent cultural mistakes. The most important matter at hand (and the reason why the two actors were on stage together in the first place) is the pervasive HIV epidemic in India that has made it the largest HIV-infected country in the world. The last time I checked HIV/AIDS was a much more taboo subject than PDA's in ANY culture. Gere and Shetty should be applauded for their commitment to quelling this very serious global disease rather than vilified for an "incident" that was clearly accidental and unintentional."

BOBBY ABID STARRING ON BROADWAY

Bobby Abid


Bobby Abid stars in Alter Ego production of A First Class Man, by David Freeman at 45th Street Theater in Times Square on a limited run closing October 21Bobby plays three roles in this play, Manu (the brother), the gypsy and the wounded soldier. Three very challenging roles that require different acting, accents and costumes. A grueling stretch for a dynamic and talented young actor. The play is the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan, a shipping clerk living in India in the 1910's who possessed an innate genius and a full time passion for producing complex mathematical theorems and equations who had no formal training. He was self taught from a textbook that was at least a generation out of date and his results have an impact on our lives to this day.
