A music video directed by Thomas Kloss in support of The Pussycat Dolls' new song "Jai Ho (You Are My Destiny)" has been revealed. Filmed at a Vienna trainyard, it highlights a crowded market scene with all the members of The Pussycat Dolls sporting Bollywood-themed costumes and alluding "Slumdog Millionaire" dance sequence.
Commenting on the video, Nicole Scherzinger previously said from its shooting location that it will capture scenes "from every point of people around the world and represent from every place." She also stated, "Somehow the energy and love of the songs shined through and it was as if we were just an extension of where the movie took off at the end."
"Jai Ho (You Are My Destiny)" is originally a Hindi song performed by Indian singers Sukhwinder Singh and A. R. Rahman for the soundtrack of the Dev Patel-starring film. The track is then re-recorded by The Pussycat Dolls with English lyrics and Nicole Scherzinger's vocals leading the lines.
"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," Nicole said in a statement. "The movie, the story and the music [were] a gift and very spiritually uplifting for me. ... 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."
