Akon in city, lends voice to SRKs Ra.1

American singer Akon arrived in the city on Monday morning to record a song for Shah Rukh Khan's next film Ra.1. Akon was whisked away from the airport to a studio where he recorded a song for composer duo Vishal-Shekhar. Akon will be here for two days and is planning to come back to the city next month for a concert with composer Aadesh Shrivastava.

Shrivastava, who is aware of Akon's arrival, said he would meet the singer on Monday evening. "I will meet him and discuss the plan. We had this idea long ago, but we are yet to finalise it on paper," said Shrivastava who is planning a three-city tour along with the R&B star.

According to sources, Akon will be crooning a few Hindi lines too in Ra.1 that is his Bollywood debut. According to Srivastava, it's not for the first time Akon is singing a Hindi song. Incidentally, the singer has already sung for Srivastava, and sung Hindi lines as well. "He may be singing for a Bollywood film for the first time, but I was the first one (here) to record a song with Akon in India. The song is titled One For The World which we plan to promote as a peace song."

The song that was recorded at Icon Studios, Atlanta, US, is composed by Srivastava who had earlier teamed up with the singer in some of the international stage shows and hopes to recreate the magic this time as well. In fact, Srivastava's seven-year-old son Avitesh has also lent his voice to the song along with Akon.
