Katrina Kaif turns singer for AR Rahman?


By Hindustan Times

Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif who's singing for Dhoom 3, will now also be lending her voice for a romantic number, composed by AR Rahman in Yash Chopra's directorial comeback, also starring SRK and Anushka Sharma, reports Mumbai Mirror.

Katrina's friend told the tabloid: "No half-measures for Katrina these days. She had earlier decided to sing for Yash Raj's Dhoom 3 with about a week of rehearsals thrown in. But now, she has grown more ambitious and wants to try out a more complex singing challenge the other film directed by Yash Chopra has thrown at her."

Katrina Kaif has been associated with Rahman before. She recited nursery rhymes for a charity album composed by the music maestro.

"Earlier, Kat had a persistent offer from Ali Zafar to sing with him for his private album. He was keen but she begged off. Then came the chance to sing in Dhoom 3, which she liked. But now, the prospect of singing a dreamy romantic song for a Yash Raj film, written by Gulzar and composed by A R Rahman has caught her fancy," Kat's friend was quoted by the tabloid.

Katrina Kaif has her hands full with numerous projects. YRF's Ek Tha Tiger with Salman Khan is set to release on 15 August. The actress offered prayers at the holy shrine of Sufi saint Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti here for the success of her upcoming film Ek Tha Tiger.

It was the first visit by a film celebrity after the recent controversy following Dargah Diwan's objection to film stars' visits to the Dargah.
