She will lend her voice in a song in her upcoming film “Mere Brother Ki Dulhan” opposite chocolate boy Imran Khan. She had earlier sung a nursery rhyme for music maestro A R Rahman’s album of nursery rhymes. It was her co-star Ali Zafar who had convinced her to sing a song in the film.

It was Ali who convinced her.” The source added “Ali Zafar has sung three songs in the film and Katrina has sung one of the tracks composed by Sohail Sen.” Sohail Sen the music composer of the film however stated, “We still haven’t decided on the singers.”

According to reliable sources, South Indian beauty Asin has been approached by the makers of South Indian superstar Rajinikanth's next film Rana to be directed by K.S. Ravikumar under the banner of Eros International and Chennai based Ocher Studios.
The sources said even a one-line summary of the script has been narrated to the actress and she is keen to team up with the super star, since the script fascinates her and the film has A.R.

Made in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu, the film will go on floors in March and will hit screens in early 2012.
