Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty was swamped with hundreds of calls after a fan got hold of her private number and sent it out in a mass e-mail, forcing her to file a police complaint, her publicist said Tuesday.
The complaint asks police to trace the fan, said Shetty's publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
Currently in Britain performing a musical titled "Miss Bollywood," the actress was "extremely perturbed" her number was known to hundreds of people who called or sent her SMS messages, he said.
"Some want to date her, some want to just listen to her voice, some want to inquire if her musical 'Miss Bollywood' is doing fine and some call just to check if they are speaking to the real Shilpa Shetty," Bhagwagar said, adding that the actress has stopped using the number.
A well-known actress in India, Shetty became an international star after her appearance on the British reality show "Celebrity Big Brother."
Mumbai police were investigating the incident, said police officer Sushil Joshi, adding that the fan could face a six-month jail term for harassment and illegally using the Internet to publicize a private phone number.
