Shilpa Shetty was supposed to perform with the American R&B star Akon at the Indian Premier League (IPL) finals but decided to opt out at the last minute as she couldn't get time to prepare for the act.
"I was just not prepared. It was an international platform, not some village nautanki. I had to be fully ready. And I just didn't get time to rehearse. So I regretfully had to say no. But I'd rather not give anything less than my best when I'm representing my country," Shilpa said.
Shilpa, who co-owns the IPL team Rajasthan Royals with beau Raj Kundra, says she was happy to be just a spectator at the finals.
"So what if my team wasn't playing. I think I'm sporting enough to enjoy the game as just a part of the audience," she added.
