Snoop hits Bollywood

Yep, you read that correctly. 

New York Magazine* has a clip of some Akshay Kumar medley performance in Bangkok that includes the title song from Singh Is Kinng (I'm not sure why they spelled it that way, looks stupid if you ask me), which features some Snoop rhymes (at 1:30). The rest of the medley includes some of Kumar's other hits, like "Mast Kalandar," "Hare Ram," etc. 

Snoop is getting in on the promo action, too. Another link in the nymag story goes to a YouTube clip of Mr. D-o-double-G dressed all Punjabi style, sitting in fancy chairs with Kumar and talking about "coming to take over Bollywood." (1:20)

It really is becoming a small world. Either that or Americans are just getting wise to how much money there is to be made in the Indian film industries.




*Thanks for the tip, Jas!

That's because they pay their crew members in food! After that, it's all profit...

I heard this on NPR the other day and was dying to see the visual evidence. Thanks!

Dude! They filmed the video for the song in CHICAGO. My cousin, Twinkle (yes that's her real name) was in it. I wasn't feeling well enough to go. It was about a month ago. Nickel's brother in law was somehow associated with the production company or something out of Philly. At any rate, they spent about 11 hours filming it in a studio in the West Loop.
