International R&B singer Akon has flown here to record global version of Tamil actor Silambarasan aka Simbu's hit love single, Love Anthem, which was originally released in 2011 for world peace.
Akon arrived here Saturday night and the team has begun shooting.
"This version will be different than the last version of the song. The new version will be more about oneness and the need to spread love," Simbu told IANS.
"Akon will shoot with us here for three days. We plan to shoot a music video, which will also feature him. I'm really looking forward to this collaboration," added the actor currently also shooting for Tamil films, Vaalu and Vettai Mannan.
Later, Simbu posted a message on Twitter: "On the way to the studio. Recording the vocals tonight. Excited and nervous as well."
