The 'surprises' don't stop coming for Shilpa Shetty. Not that it is surprising anymore, but her husband Raj Kundra has gone out and gifted her yet another mehenga tohfa. The doting hubby gifted her a blue sports car in Jaipur on Tuesday just before the Rajasthan Royals match.
Says a source close to the couple, "Raj is a car fanatic and loves fast sleek cars. He has several luxury cars in London. Last year, in South Africa he had hired a bright red Lamborghini for them to ride around in. This time around, he went ahead and actually bought one in blue for his wife! He had it delivered to Delhi and drove it down to Jaipur. When Shilpa landed at the airport, she saw the car waiting for her and was stunned. After the Jaipur match, it will go back to Mumbai for Shilpa's use."
The source adds that Raj chose the royal blue colour in keeping with the team colours of the Rajasthan Royals, the Indian Premier League cricket team that Shilpa and he own. "At the airport, he told Shilpa that a new Rajasthan Royals merchandise was waiting for her (the new car).
“Interestingly, Shilpa doesn't care much for cars, though she loves speed. In Mumbai, she has one luxury car and is happy with that. And though this is Raj's gift to her, it will end up being used more by him. He loves driving and will be happy to drive around in Mumbai."
At the RR match on Tuesday, Shilpa was attired in a blue leheriya saree for the first time. The source says, "Normally, Shilpa wears a white vest or T-shirts which she feels are lucky for her but she chose to wear a saree on Tuesday as it was gifted to her by Maharani Padminiji of Jaipur"
