Fans beseige Shilpa Shetty's mobe

Number emailed to world+dog

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Bollywood babe Shilpa Shetty has described herself as "extremely perturbed" after a Indian fan got hold of her mobile number and emailed it to all and sundry, with inevitable results.

According to AP, the 32-year-old thespo "was swamped with hundreds of calls" and SMS messages following the leak. Her publicist Dale Bhagwagar said: "Some want to date her, some want to just listen to her voice, some want to inquire if her musical Miss Bollywood is doing fine and some call just to check if they are speaking to the real Shilpa Shetty."

Shetty has filed a police complaint, and Mumbai cops are investigating. Officer Sushil Joshi noted that the fan responsible "could face a six-month jail term for harassment and illegally using the internet to publicise a private phone".

The offending number has now been cut off. Doubtless it will be reassigned shortly to some unfortunate who'll have to field calls for Richard Gere's favourite sub-continental snogging partner. ®
