Fans as well as skeptics have been waiting to judge Priyanka Chopra’s singing talent,now that she will soon be making a debut as a singer.

Yesterday,the actress launched her first single in Mumbai,titled In my city. Renowned rapper will.i.am also features in the song,which pays homage to her early years and the journey from a small town to the glamour world. The song will also open the National Football League in the US today. The actress features on the cover,which was shot three months ago in the US.The album has been produced by Lady Gaga’s producer RedOne and is being released by the Universal Music Group.

Friend indeed

He may be spreading his wings and taking flight,but Tigmanshu Dhulia isn’t willing to do it alone. The filmmaker has signed on Saif Ali Khan for his film Bullet Raja,the second commercial star Dhulia is working with after Imran Khan (Milan Talkies). But that does not mean he has forgotten his old friends. The film also has on board his long-trusted actors,Irrfan — with whom he has done Haasil,Paan Singh Tomar and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster’s sequel — as well as Jimmy Shergill. Sonakshi Sinha is the leading lady. Given the recent success rates of the cast,one wonders if Dhulia is piggybacking on Saif’s stardom to go commercial,or is the actor hoping that his director’s lucky charm will rub off on him.
