Shilpa Shetty, who's lately bought IPL shares in the Rajasthan Royals, is all set to shoot a sizzling music video to promote her cricket team.
The song an evocative Rajasthani-folk number entitled ''Halla Bol'' has been composed by Anand Raj Anand. It will be choreographed by Ken Ghosh who stopped doing music videos once he became a feature filmmaker.
Says Shilpa excitedly. "I'm so glad Ken is making an exception for me. We chose Anand Raj Anand because he's an expert at catchy folk songs. I first worked in a film with his music when he scored for Pardesi Babu. I was simply bowled over by the numbers. Today ,when I hear the song he has composed for our team, I feel deeply enthused."
So enthused is Shilpa and her beau and co-partner Raj Kundra by the Anand Raj Anand's Rajasthani song that they've apparently decided to shell out a mini fortune close to Rs.1 crore, to shoot the song featuring Shilpa. Though Shilpa isn't revealing any more, a source close to her says her IPL music video would be better than anything that she has done before.
Says the source, "From ''UP Bihar Lootne'' to ''Shut Up And Bounce''...Shilpa's item songs have always been special. She wants her IPL music video to be her best item song ever. She's working on the costumes, accessories everything in advance so that when they shoot the video in March she'll sizzle like never before."
Close to Rs.3 crores are expected to be spent on the music video. Laughs Shilpa, "I'm not revealing any figures, except the one that you'll see in the music video."
