Taking to Twitter, Will.i.Am revealed that he had always been inspired by India and Bollywood. “Check out our video for #ACTION inspired by #BOLLYWOOD...ive always loved music from india...#Elephunk and #MonkeyBusiness were inspired by Indian Culture...thank you india for your vibrancy and contribution to the world,” he wrote.

Replying to his tweet. AR Rahman wrote, “The borders are blurring through art! #tamilcinema @directorshankar #rajnikant #india.”

Previously also, The Black Eyes Peas has sampled the tune of Don song Ye Mera Dil for their song chartbuster Don’t Phunk with my Heart. Another Hindi song, Ae Naujawan from film Apradh was also sampled by the band for the same song.

Talking about her departure, will.i.am recently explained, “We love her, and she’s focusing on being a mom. That’s a hard job, and that’s what she really wants to do and we’re here for her... It’s really the way Fergie designed it, so we’re respecting her design. We love Fergie, and we don’t want anything but awesomeness for her.”
