Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue has been signed to sing under the music direction of AR Rahman for the film Blue which stars Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt , Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif.
AR Rahman had considered two others for the same song. Madonna declined due to her crisis ridden personal life. Rihanna was too costly. Kylie has agreed to sing for the price of Rs five crore ($1 million). She will record the song in January 2009 and act in promo of the film.
Blue, an under water thriller, is one of the most expensive films ever made in India with a budget of Rs130 crores. This film is directed by debutant Anthony D’Souza.
