~~~~~~Australian singer Kylie Minogue (R) poses with Bollywood star Akshay Kumar (C) and Sanjay Dutt~~~~~~~~
The Australian singer reportedly impressed Indian directors with her Bollywood moves after only three days of rehearsals for the film Blue.
The pop singer said she was thrilled to work with India's double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman, after recording one of his songs for the move. She met Rahman at the Baftas in London last month where she presented him with an award for Slumdog Millionaire.
The movie is about a sunken treasure ship and is said to have been inspired by the Hollywood production "The Deep".
Although little is known about the plot, Minogue will reportedly appear in the film playing herself, acting one scene with action hero Akshay Kumar and performing a set-piece song-and-dance routine.
Speaking to reporters, Minogue said she had been overwhelmed by the response she received in India.
"My over riding memory of India is the warmth and professionalism of the people I dealt with whilst making Blue," she said.
"I arrived here as a stranger but I left considering myself as family."
