Tinsel tattle has it that Hrithik Roshan has changed his loyalty from Mumbai to Rajasthan ahead of the IPL tournament.

According to the latest buzz, Hrithik is no longer going to promote Mumbai Indians like he did last year by shaking his leg in the team’s video “Duniya Hila Denge”. Ironically, the team even failed to reach the semifinals last year.

This year, Hrithik is learnt to be switching his loyalty to Rajasthan Royals – last year’s champs – thanks to Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty who seems to have convinced Hrithik to be part of the new Royals’ video. Hrithik’s one-year contract with Mumbai Indians has already expired.

Shilpa and her boyfriend own a 12 percent stake in the Rajasthan team. She is going to dance in a promotional video and is letting her purse strings loose to make sure the video turns out to be as lavish as the team’s name.

Shilpa has already been part of the Rajasthan Royals’ new anthem ‘Halla Bol’ which was recently unveiled at a pre-Holi bash held at a five-star suburban hotel. That song is learnt to have cost around Rs. 1 crore.
