[an error occurred while processing this directive]Shilpa Shetty was supposed to perform with the American R&B star Akon at the IPL finals on Sunday night. However, she decided to opt out at the last minute.

When contacted Shilpa explained, “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 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."
