Rap star co-writes song for upcoming Bollywood film

Snoop Dogg has co-written the title track and starred in the video for a forthcoming Bollywood film.

The video for ‘Sing Is King’ features the rap star dressed in 1970s disco garb and a jeweled turban alongside Indian movie star Akshay Kumar.

Snoop Dogg leads off the video by saying, “Yo, what up. This Big Snoop Dogg. Represent the Punjabi. Aye ya, Hit em with this.”

The film’s producers said the collaboration was more than a blending of cultures and would pave the way for similar projects in the future, reports the Associated Press.

Snoop Dogg said he plans to follow up his success overseas with a tour to India. “Snoop Dogg has a lot of fans in India and I love ’em right back,” he said. “Get ready for me.”
