    Shilpa: To Kiss twice or thrice?
    By Subhash K Jha

    Paris suddenly seems to have become a haunting ground of sorts for Bollywood. Sanjay Leela Bhansali whose opera Padmavati goes on stage this week is currently enjoying a Parisian spring in his life.

    If all had gone well Priyanka Chopra would have been in Paris for the Fashion Week shooting for Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion which drew to a close earlier this week.

    On Sunday our own Shilpa Shetty shimmered in Paris as she represented Louis Vuitton for a show put up by American designer Mark Jacobs.

    Shilpa occupied the front row with other celebrity representatives for the legendary brand including filmmaker Sofia Coppola, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and American burlesque star Dita Von Teese.

    "I've been closely associated with this brand for some time now.

    And much as I had decided to stay in Mumbai for a few months to put my film-production plans in place, there was no way I could get away from this engagement?and you know what?

    I don't regret it one bit. Paris is exhilarating any time. And more so now when the company is so exciting."

    Shilpa says she loved Sofia, Maggie and Dita's enthusiasm for India.

    "When I come abroad I feel a tangible change in the attitude to our country. If I've been even a tiny part of that change, I feel good. What I can't come to terms with is the different ways of greeting in different parts of Europe.

    In Brussels you've to plant three kisses, while elsewhere it's just two. It's very difficult to keep track of how many kisses is correct in which city. Maybe I should keep a 'cheek' list."

    Lauging loudly she bids adieu to mingle with super-celebrities.

    But not before declaring, "I long to get back home.I've been traveling so much I think home-sickness was invented for me."

    Shilpa returns later this week.
