Shilpa Shetty has plans to throw a party for the members of Rajasthan Royals team on the eve of Holi.

The festival of colours is just a week away and Shilpa is using the occasion to boost the morale of the IPL team and bond with the players as well. The actress, along with her boyfriend Raj Kundra, recently bought a 12 percent stake in the team.

Reports say Shilpa will host a pre Holi bash on March 10 at the Grand Hyatt. Many team members, if not all, are expected to attend the party.

Will the guests play the Holi with colours?

No. Shilpa says there won’t be any playing with colours but there certainly would be a lot of bhang (hemp) to get high.

Despite having not-so-considerable stake in the team, Shilpa is set to become the face of Rajasthan Royals because of her popularity. But whether she can bond on the same level with players as Preity Zinta and Shahrukh Khan do, is something that remains to be seen.

To begin with, Shilpa will shoot a video for her team, which, by the way, are the champions of the last year’s tournament.
