ShakiraAfter Akon for Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.One, it is now the Latin American sensation Shakira's turn to rock in a Bollywood song. She will sing for a film featuring entrepreneur Sachin Joshi, the key sponsor of Kolkata Knight Riders Indian Premier League team.

To be composed by Salim Sulaiman, the number, a frenzied dance track to be filmed on South African model Candice Boucher, will be recorded in the next couple of months. "It will be a very sensuous cabaret kind of song," said Salim.

Shakira is no stranger to India. In 2007, she performed live in Mumbai and other cities and has repeatedly expressed a desire to be part of the Bollywood film industry.

"Sachin Joshi, who's helming and starring in the project, is in touch with Shakira and she has agreed to sing for Salim-Sulaiman," a source said.

"The lyrics would be in English, but with a smattering of easy Hindi. It won't be a duet like the song Kylie Minogue sang on Tony D'Souza's Blue. It'd be a Shakira solo dhamaka."
