It seems that singing for films is the latest fad to have to hit tinsel town. After reports of Priyanka Chopra going all out for her international album and singing for ‘Zanjeer’, now comes the news that arch rival Katrina Kaif too will croon for not one, but two of her films ��� Yash Chopra�۪s next and ��Dhoom: 3�۪.
“No half measures for Katrina these days. She had earlier decided to sing for Yash Raj’s Dhoom 3 with about a week of rehearsals thrown in. But now, she has grown more ambitious and wants to try out a more complex singing challenge the other film directed by Yash Chopra has thrown at her,” said a source to The Times of India.
“Earlier, Kat had a persistent offer from Ali Zafar to sing with him for his private album. He was keen but she begged off. Then came the chance to sing in Dhoom 3, which she liked. But now, the prospect of singing a dreamy romantic song for a Yash Raj film, written by Gulzar and composed by A R Rahman has caught her fancy,” added the source.
It will be interesting to see how Kaif pulls off singing a full song, when she�۪s just about learnt how to speak Hindi fluently and dub for her own films. The challenge of course is tougher when you�۪re singing a song penned by the poetic Gulzar and composed by maestro A.R. Rahman.
Yash Chopra�۪s as yet untitled film sees Kaif with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma with Rishi and Neetu Kapoor in cameos. It hits theatres this Diwali.
