Priyanka Chopra will mark her Bollywood singing debut in Zoya Akhtar’s forthcoming film. Until now, Priyanka Chopra was not allowed to sing in her films as she was bound by a contract with her international music label, Interscope Records & DesiHits!, that produced her singles.
However, for Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do, the actress has lent her voice to one of the songs to go with the end credits.
A source says, “ Priyanka had recited some lines in Mary Kom which was a lullaby, not a proper song. In her upcoming film, she has sung a song that will be part of the end credits. It is a fun composition and she really loved singing it. This is the first time that she has done playback singing for a Bollywood film.”
Before leaving for Los Angeles, the actress is said to have recorded the song in Mumbai. The music of the film has been composed by the Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy triumvirate.
The source adds, “ Priyanka did record a song at Bandra studio last week before she went abroad. It is a solo track and has come out very well. There are also plans to shoot an accompanying video featuring Priyanka and her co- stars.”
Incidentally, back in 2005, Priyanka had declined the offer to sing the song ‘Tinka Tinka’ for Karam as she wanted to concentrate on her acting career.
