Lisbeth Scott, the ethereal voice in blockbusters like James Cameron's Avatar, Sherlock Holmes and Pirates of the Caribbean, is making her Bollywood debut with Hindi film Lahore.
The singer has sung the opening 'alaap' for the Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan directed movie. Wayne Sharpe has done the background music of the movie.
Academy-award nominated Scott's repertoire also include Passion of the Christ, Narnia, Shrek 2, Transformers, Munich, Bond film Casino Royale and Saving Private Ryan.
The director said he became enamored of her voice after listening to her in Steven Spielberg's film Munich but he was not sure that Scott will agreee.
"It was a wonderful and intense experience working with Wayne on his beautiful score to Lahore. I was mesmerized and realized what an important and special film this was. We worked steadily after that for several days and had a very easy and organic creative interaction. I am very excited to see and hear the final results!," Scott said in a statement.
Shot in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Lonavala, Malaysia and at Lahore in Pakistan, 'Lahore' is an intensely gripping tale set against the backdrop of kickboxing and is a story about revenge.
The film, produced by Sai Om Films and distributed by Warner Bros Pictures, will hit theatres on March 19 and stars Farouque Shaikh, Nafisa Ali, Sushant Singh, Nirmal Pandey and marks the debut of Aanaahad & Shraddha Das in key roles.
