Wishing to visit India in March, Hollywood actor Richard Gere filed a request in the Supreme Court in India, earlier this month, for a stay on the arrest warrants issued by various courts for his controversial kiss with Shilpa Shetty, last year. Gere sought a guarantee from the state governments for a hassle-free exit from India on completion of his engagements.
In responce, a bench comprising Chief Justice, K.G Balakrishan and justices R.V Raveendran and L.S Panta, issued notices to the respondents on his request.
According to the bench, the proceedings before the trail courts have already been stayed by the Supreme Court.
