Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra has moved the court seeking dismissal of the appeal filed against her in connection to the 2007 obscenity case. The plea had challenged the magistrate’s order of discharging her from the case. In her plea, Shilpa has claimed that the only allegation against her is that she did not protest when Hollywood actor Richard Gere kissed her and therefore this does not make her a conspirator.
