Columbian pop sensation, Shakira, who made waves recently with her FIFA World Cup song Waka Waka, may soon make a debut in Bollywood.
The 33-year-old star is in talks with Bollywood music composers Salim-Sulaiman to sing in a yet-to-be-titled film.
Shakira may follow in the footsteps of Australian pop star Kylie Minogue who sang for Oscar-winner A R Rahman in Akshay Kumar starrer Blue last year.
Salim-Sulaiman, who collaborated with South African singers in Shakira's World Cup song Waka Waka, are in touch with her and says that Hips Don't Lie singer is very willing.
"We are in talks with her management. She seems to be really willing to collaborate and we are hoping a positive response in 5-6 days," Salim Merchant of the duo told PTI.
And if everything goes right Salim-Suleman will be recording with Shakira in a month's time. The song would be a Cabaret number with Latin influence in it.
The film will be helmed by Prakash Chadha who last directed Himesh Reshammiya's Aap Ka Suroor. It will mark the acting debut of entrepreneur Sachin Joshi who is also the producer of the film.
Shakira, would be the latest foreign import after Mexican star Barbara Mori seen with Hrithik Roshan in Kites.
Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone and former Bond Girl Denise Richards also made their Bollywood debut in Akshay-Kareena's Kambakkht Ishq last year.
