Truly, showbiz makes some strange bedfellows. Like Bollywood music maestroÂ AR Rahman and sexy American singer, songwriter, dancer and actressÂ Nicole Scherzinger, who is also the lead singer of the pop groupÂ Pussycat Dolls.
The two had teamed up to remix the Jai Ho! soundtrack from Slumdog Millionaire and make it as sensational a foot-stepping number as was Sukhwinder Singh’s original. Now there is buzz that they are working together on either an album or an international show. Rahman is supposed to be hosting Nicole and her boyfriend, the F1 starÂ Lewis Hamilton, for dinner inÂ Los Angeles.
Record producers see in them a huge potential as Nicole has a considerable following inÂ India. Rahman, incidentally, also collaborated with English singer-songwriter Dido for the song If I Rise in Danny Boyle’s film 127 Hours that is huge right now and likely to get an Oscar nomination.
