Every actor or actress in Bollywood wants to be versatile. Many get a chance while others get typecast. But it seems everything is rosy for Katrina Kaif. After she announced her plans of producing a Hindi remake of a French film, she will now sing for an album composed by A R Rahman. The album in question is the Rahman-composed children’s album of nursery rhymes and inspirational songs that the composer will release early next year.
Initially, Katrina was only supposed to be part of the music video but now after watching her progress at the box-office, Katrina has been asked to sing a few songs in the album. It was initially suggested that Katrina sing Rahman’s compositions in English but now she will be seen singing in Hindi. This despite the fact that she has a heavy British accent and is just beginning to learn Hindi.
Katrina said that she’s always game for new challenges. Singing in itself was a challenge because she has never sung professionally. Singing in English would have been a convenient challenge. But she’d rather take the uncomfortable route. She added that somewhere down the line, she got tired of people commenting on her Hindi. She guesses she’s been working hard on it.
