September 14, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Grammy award winning Columbian singer and songwriter Shakira is making her Hindi film debut with an Indian film called Kaali-The Warrior Goddess. The well known singer will make her grand entry in the Indian films playing the goddess 'Kali'.
Karan Arora, the CEO of High Ground Entertainment Ltd. will be producing the movie starring Shakira. Arora was quoted saying that the movie will be a 3D motion film shot on CG. The full length two-hour-long Hindi movie will be shot either in London or in a city in Eastern Europe.
The producer confirmed Shakira being a part of his movie saying that the signer has agreed to be on board but she is yet to sign the papers. He added that when his co-producer spoke to Shakira, she agreed to act in this film and now they are just working out the monies.
On choosing Shakira, Karan Arora said that she was chosen for two reasons; one is they wanted to cast an international star and the second is that they wanted to have someone dusky and Shakira matches both the criteria.
In the recently concluded 2010 FIFA World Cup, Shakira became a household name in India and all over the world with her peppy Waka Waka number. Hope Indian people accept her Kali avatar too!
