Mumbai, Oct. 16 -- Earlier in the year, Shah Rukh Khan surprised everyone by announcing that R&B superstar Akon would sing for his movie, RA.One. A bigger surprise was that the Senegalese-American singer would be singing in Hindi. The superstar admitted that he'd met Akon in New York, and over a drink, had wondered if he'd like to sing for Hindi films. Akon agreed immediately and SRK told him to fly down to Mumbai.
"My son and I had heard him sing 'Smack that...' at the IPL final in South Africa. He's a cool guy but we didn't know if he could sing in Hindi. But 'Shake your booty...' and 'Chamak challo...' are chartbusters today," SRK pointed out, adding that he'd also wanted Lady Gaga
