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…"
