While she anxiously awaitsthe release of her debut international music album, which is very much in themaking, Priyanka Chopra has also found takers for her singing talentback home. It is learnt the actress will sing an entire Hindi number in ApoorvaLakhia'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 recordwith her. Since he starts shooting with her only in October, he can wait forher 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 wastalk of re-recording one of the tracks from the original “Zanjeer” in Priyanka's voice. However, thesuggestion was quickly shot down as Priyanka wanted to sing something original.
"She wants her first film song to be as special as her first internationalalbum. The song in the new “Zanjeer” will be something tailored speciallyfor her voice," said the source.
Ever since news leaked out about Priyanka's singing abilities, she has beenflooded with offers to sing for Hindi films. But she is under contract not tolet her voice be heard in any public medium or on any public platform until therelease of her international album. Hence, she has decided to sing veryselectively for films. We wonder how the makers of neo “Zanjeer” convinced her to croon.
