Shilpa Shetty launches Rajasthan Royals’ new IPL jerseys

Shilpa Shetty, who is expecting her first child with husband Raj Kundra, has unveiled a new jersey designed for her IPL team Rajasthan Royals.

Even though she won’t be able to take an active part in the tournament she is trying to do what she can. The seven-months pregnant actress is expecting to deliver her baby in May, which coincides with the finals of IPL matches.

I haven’t thought of it but if my baby’s delivery happens at the time when we will reach IPL finals, then that will be icing on the cake. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

she said.

The former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ winner married London-based businessman Raj Kundra in November 2009 and became the co-owner of Rajasthan Royal’s team the same year.

Besides looking forward to IPL, Shetty is helping her husband in his venture Super Fight League, for which she has joined hands with designer duo Shantanu and Nikhil and designed outfits for ring girls, whom she auditioned herself.

The actress will also be seen in a lead role in R Sarath’s forthcoming film ‘The Desire’.
