International Latino heart-throb Enrique Iglesias may make a whirlwind visit to Goa sometime between mid-March and mid-April for a single day shoot for Haifa's Latino video. As reported earlier, southern dancing sensation and actress Ragasiya will be known and seen as Haifa in a new international video that will have the hot bombshell grooving to some Latino and salsa beats in hold your breath - an itsy bitsy sexy outfit. The video will also feature Enrique with Haifa in a few frames, said the producers of the video - Bollywood Brands.
Haifa has signed an exclusive one-year contract with Bollywood Brands, representatives of the US-based Techno-Fusion Music Company who will manage her career and stage shows in Mumbai. The video will be shot in Venice, Milan, Greece and Goa and will be the most expensive music video ever made in India till date. Haifa was chosen for her fantastic dancing skills and great screen presence, he added.
While the producers are tight-lipped about the budget, it is rumored that that they will spend about Rs 3 crore on the video, not including Enrique's professional appearance fees. Apparently, Enrique asked the producers for a sum of Rs 4.5 crore to feature for about 25 seconds in the video in the same frame as Haifa. He will travel with an entourage of about 100 people including his sound engineers, make up professionals, stylists, bodyguards and team of managers. The location of the shoot and the place where he will stay for the day has been kept a top secret.
While Enrique's managers are insisting that the video is shot only in Venice and Milan, the Indian producers are very keen on giving it a few visuals of Goa's Baga beach and the well-known flea market. "We wanted to include a few frames of Goa's carnival in it, but our creative thought otherwise," said the CEO of Bollywood Brands.
"I am really excited to be part of this international project and look forward to it," said Haifa who has featured in several Punjabi Music videos and was the leading lady in 3-4 big south films like VASSOOLRAJA M.B.B.S and AMUDHE (Tamil). She is also the winner of the Filmfare best newcomer award.
