Shilpa Shetty is on pins and needles as IPL is happening. She along with her boyfriend Raj Kundra has recently become the co-owner of last year's IPL winner Rajasthan Royals. She shared her views about it extensively on her blog shilpashettylive.com.
"There was talk three days ago that the IPL season II might not happen. That would have been terrible, not just for the franchise owners, but also for the cricket fans all over India and the world 'cause everyone"s looking forward to this season," she wrote. "I'm glad that the games are happening at last and it would still live up to people"s expectations and more. Cant wait for the IPL to kickstart," she added.
However, she is a bit disappointed that her team would not play in their home turf in Jaipur due to security reasons. "It's sad that we're not going to be able to play in Jaipur, which happens to be our home ground, but would like our Rajasthan fans to know that it was a decision that wasn"t left to us to take. We are just complying with the decision obviously that has been taken by the IPL board, the BCCI and obviously with the advice of the home ministry and State Government. So I guess what cannot be cured has to be endured and we"re doing just that," she wrote.
Well, she is not staying idle though out of news. In fact, she is busy shooting for the music video of her team. She wrote: "Exciting "cause I am in Jaipur at the moment shooting for my music video for Rajasthan Royals. It"s going to be an anthem that people are going to love. It"s called "HALLA BOL" and it's something that has been made with a lot of love. It"s sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Anand Raaj Anand. Music has been composed by Anand Raaj Anand again and it"s been directed by Ken Ghosh and choreographed by Ahmed Khan."
The long-legged beauty is raring to go and is excited. "There's been a lot of things going through my head in the last 4-5 days, but in the midst of all this tension, my heart"s bursting with excitement and I really hope everything goes smoothly. It"s really sad whatever has happened in Pakistan and what the Sri Lankan cricketers had to go through. It was a sad day for cricket. Hope we are able to overcome all of that and things are smooth sailing and hope people don"t bring down the spirit of the game. Cricket is a game that brings together different countries and I hope we"re able to be good hosts here in India and give security to our cricketers and fans and that is of paramount importance," she wrote.
Well, seems to have learned one or two things more about cricket after buying the Rajasthan Royals.
