Unlike their Hollywood counterparts, Bollywood actors are not very popular for their singing talents. Very few have managed to create a parallel career recording in studios alongside acting.
More often than not, Hindi film stars prefer to belt out a number and then move on. Not for Priyanka Chopra!
Last year, the actress launched her debut single in collaboration with international rapper Will.i.am. And the feedback appears to have goaded her to continue the musical stint. In fact, if sources are to be believed, the Barfi!actress has already written 45 songs.
A source close to the actress said: "She is not ready to reveal anything about the tracks yet. Since she has just crossed one milestone, the actress-singer hasn't yet thought about the next one."
Priynaka's first recording for a Tamil film was for Thamizhan (2002) in which she also made her acting debut. The song Ullathai Killadhe was reportedly chosen after director Majeed heard her singing on the sets.
She later recorded a song for Bluffmaster (2005) but it was never released. In an earlier interview, Priyanka had revealed that her father always wanted her to sing and she's fulfilling his dreams.
