American music star Akon in Bollywood’s ‘Ra.One’

Senegalese-American musician Akon is reportedly recording a song for the soundtrack of the upcoming Bollywood superhero action film Ra.One, starring Shahrukh Khan. It’s rumored that Akon will also make an appearance in the film.

The Grammy-nominated singer will join the ranks of other Western music artists who’ve contributed to Bollywood films in recent years. American rapper Snoop Dogg performed on the title track of Singh is Kinng in 2008 and Australian pop star Kylie Minogue performed a song in Blue in 2009.

In Ra.One, Khan plays a software engineer who becomes a video-game hero and combats a virtual monster he created. Indian actors Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi also star in the film.
