MUMBAI: Actress Shilpa Shetty came out in support of actress Sunny Leone by terming the recent controversy on her condom advertisement as "silly comments by a fringe".

"It's just some of the fringe who thinks like that. I don't think everybody thinks like that, it's very silly. These things happen everywhere. There are controversies everywhere and this is a really silly thing that you're giving too much attention to," Shilpa told media persons at the Indian Merchant Chamber's Ladies Wing Exhibition 2015 when asked about the controversy.

"I just think that all five fingers can't be like each other. You got to have all kinds that make the world. Just concentrate on the positives. I think India is a great country; I love it and feel very proud to be Indian, to represent my country anywhere in the world."

Communist Party of India's national secretary (CPI) Atul Kumar Anjan claimed that Sunny's condom advertisement will trigger the tendency among men to commit rapes and that it was developing sexuality and ruining sensibilities. Sunny is a former pornstar who is a full-fledged actress today, famous for her explicit scenes in films.

Shilpa has had her share of controversies including the one on the popular reality show "Big Brother" and the Richard Gere kissing incident.

Regarding the association of controversies with celebrities, she said: "Celebrities are always sitting ducks. So we just accept it. I've learnt to live by the philosophy that when you're a celebrity, you shouldn't complain and you shouldn't explain. That's it."
