Shakira To Sing For Salim-SulaimanJune 16th, 2010 - 2:57 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
June 16, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): After Akon for Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.1, it is now the Latin American sensation Shakira’s turn to rock in a Bollywood song.
The number, a frenzied dance track to be filmed on the South African model Candice Boucher for the film featuring the IPL owner and entrepreneur Sachin Joshi, will be recorded in the next couple of months.
Shakira, is no stranger to India. She had performed live in Mumbai and other cities back in 2007 and has repeatedly expressed her desire to be a part of the Bollywood film industry.
Says a source, “Sachin Joshi, who’s helming and starring in the project, is in touch with Shakira and she has agreed to sing for Salim-Sulaiman. The lyrics would be in English with a smattering of simple Hindi. It won’t be a duet like the Kylie Minogue song in Tony D’Souza’s Blue. It’d be a Shakira solo dhamaka instead.”
Composer Salim of Salim-Sulaiman confirms it. “It would be a very sensuous, cabaret kind of a song.”
