India could jail Miss Universe for photo shoot
October 13 , 2013
Miss Universe Olivia Culpo might be in trouble for shooting a shoe commercial at the Taj Mahal. Indian police have accused her of violating the country's Heritage Act.
Without getting the approval of the state-run Archaeological Survey of India, Culpo shot a footwear commercial at the white-marble monument during her 10-day visit to the country.
According to Indian media, commercial activity is not permitted at the premises of the monument and if found guilty, they could be sentenced two years in prison and fined $1,600.
Culpo said she regretted the photoshoot and she did ask if doing so would be "a little inappropriate."
