The rumors that the title track of Akshay Kumar’s Singh is Kinng will be performed by Snoop Dog have been growing. We can now report that it is no longer a rumor, it has been confirmed that Snoop Dog, a famous American rapper, along with Akshay Kumar will be seen and heard in the title track for the film.
According to a press release from Studio 18: It seems that Snoop’s entire team has taken on the task of conceptualising and planning the entire shoot at a whopping cost of 7 crores. “They’re working very hard on the video, which will be shot in L.A. soon,” remarks producer Vipul Shah.
“I’d always heard of Snoop but never met him. I still haven’t, in fact. Our negotiations happened on the phone and through e-mail. His association with the film will draw a lot of non-Asian media and audience attention internationally,” adds Vipul. “Snoop has seen many Akshay songs and is excited. It’s going to be something new for him as well. He plans to incorporate a lot of Bollywood elements in the video.”
You can hear the song when the soundtrack is released later this week and the music promo is scheduled to premiere around the time Singh is Kinng is getting ready to hit theaters on 08-08-08.
Starring Akshay and Katrina Kaif, the Indian Films – Studio 18 release also has a special treat planned for some viewers because there will be previews at select locations on August 7th.
