Shilpa Shetty nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Oslo (T2N2) Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, days after she won the British TV show Celebrity Big Brother and maintained her composure in the face of alleged racist bullying by fellow contestant Jade Goody.

Shilpa's poise and equanimity on the show has impressed viewers worldwide and her act of forgiving tormentor Jade has made the Indian actress an epitome of humanity, a member of the Norwegian Nobel Committee revealed to T2N2.

If she wins, Shilpa will be the second Indian citizen to be awarded the prestigious honour after Skopje-born Mother Teresa won it in 1979.

Shilpa, who will be meeting British Prime Minister Tony Blair on February 7 and Queen Elizabeth II in March, said she was delighted to learn of her nomination.(T2N2)

Well, talk of lady luck giving a grand entry into one's life... lol, what did you expect diplomatic Shilpa to do when faced with such wrath, plunge on jade and rip her hair apart? The Indian madamoiselle who has seen worse politics in the subcontinent knows better.

And what is a better fashion statement than forgiveness? I am sure she still wants to hang Jade by the thumb. A NOBEL PRIZE FOR HYPOCRISY...WOW!!

I sympathize with Shilpa for what happened and she is nice and hot but giving her the nobel peace prize would be going to other extreme than what happened on the show.
