Actor-turned-businesswoman Shilpa Shetty says she wants a fair and balanced hearing over the termination of her Indian Premier League team Rajasthan Royals (RR). “It’s been a very distressing time for us all at RR after all we’ve put in passion n time (sic),” Shilpa tweeted on Thursday.
“All we ask is for a fair and balanced hearing on issues raised, given the adverse national and international impact on ‘Brand IPL’ in the interests of fans and teams. Most importantly a transparent process and enquiry... allegation is that our ownership has changed since 2008. Thats Untrue,” she said.
“The only change to ownership was the introduction of my husband Raj Kundra, for which we had full BCCI permission and support,” she added.
When the IPL’s decision to terminate the team was announced, Shilpa had said she would take up the matter once she got over her shock.
