Yet another Bollywood star declares love for Dubai

It seems that hardly a week passes by without a Bollywood star singing the praises of Dubai.Filmmaker Japinder Kaur is the latest member of the Hindi-language movie industry to hail the Middle Eastern city as an excellent place to shoot footage.Having grown up in Dubai, Kaur is better placed than most people to tell the world what it is like to live in the emirate.She told tabloid! that she plans to record a music video in one of Dubai's swanky nightclubs and the song will feature British Punjabi rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh.Although all of her debut feature film has been filmed in Delhi, Kaur - who is 24 - is clearly keen to showcase Dubai as much as possible too."I love this city and it's wonderful to know that I will be shooting a song in Dubai. I have also convinced Yo Yo Honey Singh to make his first appearance in a film. The song is called Birthday Bash," she was quoted as saying.If this project goes to plan, Kaur said she hopes to shoot a romantic song by singer Sunidhi Chauhan among the flowerbeds of Dubai's Miracle Garden.Kaur is the latest in a long line of Bollywood stars to have heaped praise upon Dubai.The likes of Anil Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan have all declared their fondness for the emirate in the last few months.In fact, Khan's brother Sohail told Emirates 24/7 in March that they have been scouring the Dubai property market in the hope of snapping up a plush new pad.He reiterated the point that Dubai is only two-and-a-half hours from Mumbai - the home of Bollywood - which perhaps explains why so many stars of the Indian film industry feel right at home in the UAE."We are looking, in fact we have been looking for some time, it's just that this whole year we have been tied up and yeah we would love to buy a pad in Dubai," Khan was quoted as saying.
