Pussycat Dolls Go Bollywood with ‘Jai Ho!’

Pussycat Dolls

The Pussycat Dolls are getting in on the Slumdog Millionaire phenomenon by releasing their own version of the film’s Oscar-winning song “Jai Ho.”

Slumdog Millionaire picked up eight Oscars at Sunday’s Academy Awards, including Best Original Song for composer A.R. Rahman’s “Jai Ho.” The Hindi-language hit has since been rerecorded in English by Nicole Scherzinger and the Pussycat Dolls under the title “Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny).”

“It’s an honor to be able to collaborate with A.R. Rahman and be a part of the Slumdog Millionaire project in any way. The movie, the story, and the music was a gift and very spiritually uplifting for me,” states PCD’s Scherzinger. “I can only hope and pray Slumdog Millionaire, and my version of ‘Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)’ touches and connects people all around the world.”

A video was recently shot at a railway station in Vienna, Austria. The Dolls dressed in colorful attire as they recreated the last scene of the movie aboard antique trains. “The video will be a lot of fun,” says the lead Pussycat Doll.

“This is the start of a new age, with untraditional scores and beats, where Bollywood meets Western sensibilities,” adds the song’s producer Ron Fair.

    I’m happy that american music is getting involved with Asian music.

    I disagree emran. This isn’t that new a phenomenon. In fact, Timbaland has used asian music in several songs over the years in his songs. This isn’t THAT new a phenomenon at all.

    drtash what do you mean? You call Timbo’s use of asian beats actually legitimate.? Timbo is just taking a few synths and looping them. I can tell you he doesnt have any knowledge of asian instruments.
    This is an authentic example of the west and the (who I love though

    I’ve never heard Timbaland saying ‘Bole Chudiyan’ before. Yeah, he has used asian music, as in indian drummings and such, but not Hindi/Punjabi lyrics.

    If it’s the PCD’s song then why did Nicole refer to it as her version? Don’t get me wrong, i know that Nicole really is the PCD at the end of the day but i guess it’s strange that even she will admit it.
