The song talks about the want to kiss, but there’s no kissing in it. In fact, even Mika (Mehndi’s brother, and singer) had messaged me asking what kind of a song I’ve come out with. I told him, ‘Main toh chummi lene ki baat kar raha hoon, tumne toh chummi le li hai’.”
Mehndi is also ready with this next studio album, Tunak Tunak Tumba, after a gap of five long years. “There’s a song each for every mindset. I’ve even delved in Haryanvi this time, so from Sufi to Mild Rock, from Bhangra to Raggae, to even classical, there is a song for everybody.”

Now, the two have buried their hatchet and Rakhi is doing an item song sung by Mika in her forthcoming flick ‘Qasam Se Qasam Se’. On a recent episode of her comedy show ‘Comedy Circus’, Rakhi Sawant hugged Mika Singh, who had come there as a celebrity judge and publicly declared that they are friends again.
The flick has Rakhi playing a teacher in the film named Delnaz Doodhwala who is born and brought up abroad. She is a sex education teacher in the film and the item song goes something like ‘ Bolne Mein Kya Jaata Hain’. the film is directed by debutante Ashfaque Makrani and will mark the debut of Azim & Faith. In the item song Azim and his gang is trying to grab Rakhi’s attention.
Gorgeous and talented though Chitrangada Singh is, the lass does not appear in many films and is very choosy about what she signs. Her forthcoming flicks are ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’ opposite Irrfan Khan and Rohit Dhawan’s directorial debut, ‘Desi Boyz’ opposite John Abraham.
Now, Chitrangada has signed yet another flick opposite John Abraham being directed by Goldie Behl. Says the beautiful actress, “Yes, I’m doing Goldie Behl’s next. It’s opposite John Abraham. The film is untitled now. We begin shooting from 17th February. It’s a drama. But I can’t reveal more about it right now.”
Prakash Jha Productions’ gangster romance, Yeh Saali Zindagi, is slated for a February 4 release, and for the first time, Chitrangada has exercised her vocal chords to render the title track of the film with composer-singer Abhishek Ray.
For the female vocals, Ray auditioned a number of singers but wasn’t happy. It was Mishra who suggested he try out Singh. “And she was an apt choice because she had the right attitude befitting a snooty woman who, when asked to wait forever, retorts that she doesn’t even wait for the bus,” laughs Ray, admitting that he needed just an evening’s rehearsal with the actor to make her “musically correct” for the recording.
If all goes well, the ‘Hips don’t lie’ girl Shakira will be playing Goddess Kali UK based film producer Karan Arora’s 3D VFX movie ‘Kali-the warrior Goddess’. Though the movie is not strictly speaking on the Goddess herself, but it does draw inspiration from Hindu mythology.
Throwing more light on the project and its association with the Columbia based singer Shakira, Arora said, “It’s a fiction movie. Only the look, feel and fabric are inspired by Hindu Mythology. The story is different than what people may expect.”
“We are fine tuning the association and it will be finalised after negotiations, paper work, and documentation. The casting is still in the initial stages. We started pre-production little less than a year ago. The film will be set in the imaginary world and no timelines have been set. Hence, there will not be any real location in the film. It will be similar to James Cameron’s Avatar but not as big,” Arora added.
Kali-the warrior Goddess will be directed by Simon Hunter with technicians from USA, UK and Research team from Kolkata to work on the look of the movie.
Arora said “Kali will not be typical song and dance movie. One will not see Shakira as we are used to seeing her dance. The movie will not hurt anybody’s sentiments.”
The movie will go on floors in April next year and is slated for a 2013 release. Arora’s ‘Bhindi Bazaar’ starring Deepti Naval and Manisha Koirala is almost ready and ‘Padosi’ and ‘Lets Talk Love’ are near completion.
