Akshay Kumar, it seems, has taken a fancy for international singers of late. After Chandni Chowk To China, the actor has again teamed up with US-based desi hip-hop and rap star Bohemia for a peppy song and music video for his forthcoming Percept Picture Companyâ€™s film 8X10 Tasveer. Apart from this Akshay had earlier teamed up with Snoop Dogg in Singh Is Kinng, Kylie Minogue in Blue.
A source says, “Bohemia has lent his voice for the title song of Percept Picture Companyâ€™s 8X10 Tasveer. The feel of the song is a mix of grunge underground meets hip-hop. The camera work is exceptional. But it is Akshay Kumar who is the eye candy in the video from minute one. It’s an addictive track.”
Navin Shah, CEO of Percept Picture Company, says, “The music video encapsulates the personality of the film. The intrigue and thrill elements form an integral part of the video. Bohemia is a very popular rap artist and we are very happy that he has given his music for our film.”
Percept Picture Companyâ€™s 8X10 Tasveer has been directed by Nagesh Kukunoor and slated for April 3, 2009 release. Akshay plays the character of a man of Indian origin who becomes a forest ranger in Canada. It also stars Ayesha Takia, Vinod Khanna and Sharmila Tagor
