International pop star Shakira will appear for an item number in Prabhu Deva's debut film in Hindi. The dance master turned director Prabhu Deva is now busy in his Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster Pokkiri. Salman Khan is playing the male lead role, and Ayesha Takia is appearing in the role of a lead lady in which Asin has already stamped her mark.
Now the director wants to introduce a new face for an item number (enacted by Mumaith Khan in Tamil) which takes place in second half of the film. After a long search, he selected pop star Shakira for that role. Later, the pop star also confirmed that she has happily accepted the offer from the dancing legend.
Boney Kapoor, the producer of the film, said "When we approached Shakira's manager to get her dates for our film, he was doubtful about her availability. But the pop star immediately contacted us, and promised her availability for our film…"
