Bollywood Star Tries To Calm Uproar Over U.k. Show

Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty appeared to douse an international diplomatic conflagration Thursday when she remarked that comments by a fellow participant on the British reality show Celebrity Big Brother were racially motivated. After the incident touched off demonstrations in India and comments from top Indian and British officials, Shetty was shown telling Jade Goody, "I take that back," referring to her previous remarks. "I don't think that is true. People say things in a fit of anger. ... I don't feel that there was any racial discrimination happening." Meanwhile, the British TV regulator OFCOM said that it had received more than 40,000 complaints about Goody's remarks, the most that have ever been filed against any program in British history.
