While she anxiously awaits the release of her debut international music album, which is very much in the making, Priyanka Chopra has also found takers for her singing talent back home. It is learnt the actress will sing an entire Hindi number in Apoorva Lakhia’s remake of the 1973 blockbuster Zanjeer.
A source close to the film said, “Apoorva, who has quite an ear for music, is completely charmed by Priyanka’s singing. But he is in no hurry to record with her. Since he starts shooting with her only in October, he can wait for her to finish her international album and then record his song with her.”
The song the actress will lend her voice to is yet to be firmed in. There was talk of re-recording one of the tracks from the original Zanjeer in Priyanka’s voice. However, the suggestion was quickly shot down as Priyanka wanted to sing something original.
“She wants her first film song to be as special as her first international album. The song in the new Zanjeer will be something tailored specially for her voice,” said the source.
Ever since news leaked out about Priyanka’s singing abilities, she has been flooded with offers to sing for Hindi films. But she is under contract not to let her voice be heard in any public medium or on any public platform until the release of her international album. Hence, she has decided to sing very selectively for films. We wonder how the makers of neo Zanjeer convinced her to croon.
