Shilpa Shetty in trouble with her phone number

The Celebrity Big Brother winner Shilpa Shetty has complained to police after her private number was circulated in a mass email. A fan of the Bollywood actress got hold of her number and sent it on to hundreds of people via email. It resulted in lots of calls and messages to Shilpa.

Shilpa Shetty became so anxious about the number of calls and messages she received, she filed an official police complaint, alleging harassment. The complaint asks police to trace the fan, according to her publicist Dale Bhagwagar. The Bollywood actress has now stopped using the number.

'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," Mr Bhagwagar said.

A well-known actress in India, Shilpa Shetty became an international star after she won the C4 reality show Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year.

Mumbai police said they were investigating, and the the fan could face six months in jail for harassment and illegally using the Internet to publicise a private phone number. Link
