Renowned Columbian pop sensation Shakira is all set to venture into Bollywood!

According to reports, Shakira is to sing a Latin influenced solo dance number for a yet untitled Bollywood movie directed by Prashant Chadha (AAP KAA SURROOR) which will be shot in China-Germany-Czech Republic-Morocco and expected to be released in summer 2011. Music composer duo Salim Merchant and Suleiman Merchant will compose it and recording is expected to start in about a month. This song, whose lyrics will be in English with a smattering of Hindi, will be filmed on South African model Candice Boucher, but Shakira might possibly make a small appearance. Energy drink owner Sachin Joshi, who is producing the film, will also star in it.

Shakira will thus be following the footsteps of British dance-pop singer Samantha Fox (Kickin It Old Skool), Australian actress-singer Kylie Minogue (Neighbours), and American singer-songwriter Akon (Locked Up), who have ventured into Bollywood in the past. Oscar winner actor-musician Russell Crowe (GLADIATOR) also reportedly expressed his interest recently to sing and dance in Bollywood movies.

Grammy award winner and Golden Globe nominated singer-songwriter-musician-record producer-dancer-philanthropist Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll (Love in the Time of Cholera), who was born and raised in Colombia, has sold about 50 million albums worldwide. She reportedly performed live in Mumbai and other cities of India in 2007.
