American rapper Akon will break out some Hindi for a Bollywood movie.
Akon, 36, will record a song for the movie soundtrack of RA.One, a science fiction action flick that will feature Bollywood heart-throb, Shah Rukh Khan, and the actress Kareena Kapoor.
Akon follows Snoop Dogg in the rap into Bollywood. Snoop recorded music for the soundtrack of the 2008 Singh Is Kinng, a comic caper about a Punjabi villager who becomes "Kinng" of the Australian underworld, according to imdb.com.
AFP reports Khan said in Mumbai: "He [Akon] is a gracious person. He will record a song in Hindi and will also feature in the video. He has flown [in] with his family, friends and team of musicians."
Akon, who is donating his services gratis, said: "India is my next focus area. I want to try different things, want to explore - want to enjoy my work. We have the same kind of entertainment, the only difference is of tradition and language."
