American actor Richard Gere, whose arrest has been ordered by an Indian court for kissing Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, is not bothered by the situation.

In an interview on Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart', he said "Me kissing the girl on the cheek was nothing."

He dismissed the charge, saying "There is a very small right-wing, very conservative political party in India and they are the moral police in India ... they do this kind of thing quite often."

"It goes to a reputable court and it gets thrown out," he continued.  

Gere kissed Shetty at an AIDS awareness event in New Delhi last week, sparking off protests against a perceived affront to the actress' modesty.
