Hot Colombian chanteuse Shakira has been engaged to do a promotional video for the big budget movie The Final Call. Producer Surya Pratap says, “Shakira and Punjabi-singer Daler Mehndi have given their confirmation for the video. They will sing a groovy, English-Punjabi track. The video will also have Sanjay Dutt if he gives us the nod. It will be a lovely combination seeing the three of them in the video.”
Sanjay is currently awaiting the release of the big budget Blue, the underwater extravaganza that also stars Akshay Kumar and Lara Dutta. He follows this up with the animated Koochie Koochie Hota Hain and the comic thriller Chatur Singh Two Star, inspired by the Pink Panther movies and also featuring Amisha Patel and Anupam Kher.
Socially-conscious Shakira recently celebrated her birthday by launching a new school in Barranquilla in Colombia for children displaced by guerrilla violence. At the launch of the school that will cater for 1500 children, she spoke about her worries that the economic downturn will affect children worldwide, “”These are very difficult times for the world and the children are the ones that suffer the consequences of a financial crisis,” she said, “It gets harder to provide food to the kids. Thousands and thousands, millions of kids receive less food around the world because of the financial crisis.”
