After Akon for Shahrukh 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
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."
