Mumbai, Feb 6: It had to happen one day or the other. Even as B-Town was placing its bets on the songstress Sunidhi Chauhan to be the first to go international, Sukhwinder Singh ‘stole the mike’.
Bollywood's very own Chhaiya chhaiya man, who recently Chak De'ed many a listener's heart with his chart-bursting songs in Chak De India and Om Shanti Om among others is all set to sing in a Hollywood film directed by Steven Spielberg.
The film will star Denzel Washington. Sukhwinder has been signed by Universal Pictures for the same.
Sukhwinder says that the Hollywood filmmakers wanted to recreate the magic of Chhaiya chhaiya, which had become immensely popular in Hollywood. For this film, however, he will be singing a traditional folk Kutchi song.
