Senegalese-American R&B singer Akon will be soon singing a song in Tamil. The credit for bringing him to the Kollywood goes to AR Murugadoss, who has signed him for his upcoming movie Thupaki.
If reports are to be believed, Akon has given his nod to sing a track in Vijay starrer Thupaki. Musician Harris Jayaraj has started working on it and he is putting his best efforts on the tune, as he is keen to make the number a chartbuster not only in Tamil Nadu but all across the nation.
Earlier, Akon had lent his voice for Hindi song 'Chammak challo...' in Shahrukh Khan's Ra.One. Since then, many South filmmakers tried to rope in to sing a track for their films. But it was not materialised due to some reasons. However, the Harris Jayaraj compositional song will mark his South Indian debut.
Meanwhile, the shooting of Thupaki is in brisk progress. The AR Murugadoss directorial movie is expected to hit the screens in June 2012. The movie also features Kajal Aggarwal, Sathyan and others in the cast.
