Crooning queen Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra, already Bollywood's hottest property, has been convinced to step outside the shower and lend her raw, beautiful voice for an ad jingle featuring a soap for which she is the new brand ambassadress.

She was first heard, and made an impression, in just one line, when she sang Right here Right now for the song by the same title in Bluffmaster.

Then she impressed the audiences when she went on Shah Rukh Khan's KBC 3 finale in April and gave an impromptu rendition of Yeh Mera Dil from the film Don in which she and SRK starred together.

Of the jingle she is going to sing for the soap ad, Priyanka said, "It's an interesting concept and it didn't take much to convince me, as I love singing. But, more than singing, it's a kind of melodious narration of a poem, with musical background. It's quite sweet and lovely."

So is she going to be the new emerging singing talent of Bollywood? And would she pursue singing if she got the right break? Priyanka laughed, "It's not like I am going to replace Alka Yagnik. But why not? I am passionate about singing. And what's the harm in pursuing it ? If something good comes my way, I shall do it!"
