Shakira's solo Bollywood dhamaka

June 16, 2010 16:13 IST

Bollywood seems to be attracting musicians from abroad.

Most recently it was Kylie Minogue who sang a song for Blue and Akon who is doing the honours for Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.One.

Now, the latest entrant to jump into the Bollywood singing bandwagon is Columbian songstress Shakira, who is set to to rock in a song for composer duo Salim-Sulaiman.

Shakira is no stranger to India. She had performed live in Mumbai and other cities back in 2007. She also has repeatedly expressed her desire to be a part of Bollywood.

According to Oneindia website, the song will be shot on South African model Candice Boucher for the film featuring the IPL owner and entrepreneur Sachin Joshi. The film is expected to be recorded in the next couple of months.

'The lyrics would be in English with a smattering of simple Hindi. It won't be a duet like the Kylie Minogue song in Blue. It'd be a Shakira solo dhamaka,' the website quoted a source as saying.

Salim has confirmed the news. 'It would be a very sensuous, cabaret kind of a song,' the website reported him as saying.
