Our entertainers are constantly floating pointed rumours about their purported collaboration with international stars. Talk of Hollywood movie projects supposedly featuring our desi A-listers with Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Michael Douglas, etc. came and went. What happened?
Finally, it's the seductive-throated Sunidhi Chauhan who has done it. She will be part of an international album titled Euphoria where she will share tracks with the likes of Usher, Akon and Nicole from Pussycat Dolls. Sunidhi has crooned a love duet entitled 'I can feel you' with none other than international singing sensation Enrique Iglesias for the album
Apparently, Sunidhi was chosen to sing for this global album alongside Usher, Akon and Nicole, as her voice was perceived to have an international feel to it.
When contacted, Sunidhi is most reluctant to talk about the song.
She said, "As you rightly said our artistes are all the time talking about collaborating with international artistes. Finally, nothing happens. I don't want to sound like one of those proposal makers. So all I'll say at the moment is, yes I've recorded the duet that you mentioned. Beyond that I'll let the song speak for itself."
Shamir Tandon who has composed the duet for Sunidhi with Enrique is far more forthcoming. "It's absolutely true that Sunidhi has sung for a global album featuring Usher, Akon and Nicole. I've composed Sunidhi's song with Enrique. We are not like those wanna-go-west Indian musicians who just talk about collaborations. Talk doesn't mean anything. I am proud to say I'm one of the first Bollywood musicians to have composed for Enrique Iglesias. Having successfully and legitimately collaborated in the past with the Boy Band Blue for 'One Love' in the Rakht and having composed a duet for Bret Lee with Asha Bhosleji, I can comfortably say I've gone from talk to actually doing it."
The album Euphoria containing Sundhi's duet with Enrique Iglesias releases in March.
