Shakira to sing cabaret number for B`wood
Mumbai: After Akon for Shah Rukh Khan`s `Ra.One`, it is now the Latin American sensation Shakira`s turn to rock in a Bollywood song. She will sing for a film featuring entrepreneur Sachin Joshi, the key sponsor of Kolkata Knight Riders Indian Premier League team.
To be composed by Salim Sulaiman, the number, a frenzied dance track to be filmed on South African model Candice Boucher, will be recorded in the next couple of months. "It will be a very sensuous cabaret kind of song," said Salim.
Shakira is no stranger to India. In 2007, she performed live in Mumbai and other cities and has repeatedly expressed a desire to be part of the Bollywood film industry.
"Sachin Joshi, who`s helming and starring in the project, is in touch with Shakira and she has agreed to sing for Salim-Sulaiman," a source said.
"The lyrics would be in English, but with a smattering of easy Hindi. It won`t be a duet like the song Kylie Minogue sang on Tony D`Souza`s `Blue`. It`d be a Shakira solo dhamaka."
