Snoop Dogg and Akshay Kumar collaborate for Bollywood film

In an unlikely collaboration, hip-hop star Snoop Dogg and Bollywood heavyweight Akshay Kumar have filmed a music video together for the title track of the actor's forthcoming movie Singh is Kinng.


Snoop Dogg recorded the film's title track Singh is Kinng with UK-based Bhangra outfit RDB, and when it came time to film the video with Kumar, the actor convinced the rapper to don Indian clothes and accessories.
The American musician was also taught how to dance Bhangra style and performed a traditional Punjabi style for the video.


Producer Vipul A. Shah said: "Snoop wants to do a Hindi movie with Akshay, as he is really keen on wooing the Indian audiences. The most interesting aspect of the song is that one gets to see two very different styles - hip-hop with Snoop and Bhangra with Akshay. Their chemistry was worth seeing as they're superstars from two different worlds. To say the least, the video is looking brilliant!"


The video is the first time hip-hop and Bollywood have come together and no expense was spared. The lavish clip cost £240,000 to make.
Singh is Kinng is released on August 8.

This is waaaack. I have heard better bhangra beats......
The beat is lightweight....and since Snoop's voice is lightweight, the combo sounds so irritating. This isnt the right beat for Snoop.
