Shah Rukh Khan and American singer-songwriter Akon are snapped at Mumbai's JW Marriot hotel on Monday. Shah Rukh hosted a party for the singer at the hotel.

The singer arrived in Mumbai to record a song for Shah Rukh's next film Ra 1. Akon will be in Mumbai for two days.

Akon, 36, and Shah Rukh recently met in Los Angeles. Akon, besides one song, will reportedly also form part of the cast. Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the science-fiction superhero hi-tech film is written by David Benullo (Shadow Man), cinematography by Ueli Steiger (The Maiden Heist), and music by Vishal-Shekhar.

Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi are also said to be a part of the film.

Shah Rukh reportedly plays a Miami software engineer Shekhar in the film, who as a video-game hero takes on his self-created techno-monster Ra 1. Shooting locations include Miami.

Grammy nominated Akon of Senegal background, born as Aliaune Badara Akon Thiam, has 40 Billboard Hot 100 songs.
