After Yo Yo Honey Singh, one singer-rapper who has caught the fancy of the Hindi film industry is Badshah. From Proper Patola, Saturday Saturday, Move Your Body, Buzz to Heartless, Badshah has wowed the audiences with his songs and whenever Badshah announces that he is coming up with a new song, fans get super thrilled. And brace yourself because after enthralling the audiences with his rap, Badshah is soon going to make his debut as an actor. That’s right!
Badshah is all set to make his Bollywood debut with debutant director Shilpi Dasgupta’s slice-of-life film starring Sonakshi Sinha. This yet-to-be-titled film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain, Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and written by Gautam Mehra. Pinkvilla was informed, “After delivering several chart-toppers in recent years, Badshah is ready to explore new territory.” While the cast of the film has already kick-started the shooting of the film in Punjab, Badshah will start with the shooting of the film from today. In the film, Badshah will be playing the role of a Punjabi boy who goes on to become a famous singer.
Before starting the shooting, Badshah informed us, “I am extremely nervous however I have taken the leap. This year I have undertaken many firsts, with my debut as a producer and now as an actor. Bhushanji and Mrigh both kept convincing me on how perfect the role is for me. It’s a film which is so unique and different, whenever I think of it, brings a smile to my face. The added advantage is working with a super talented bunch and also my buddy Sonakshi who is very dear friend and the others like Varun Sharma.”
The film stars Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Sharma, Annu Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Nadira Babbar and it will release on August 2, 2019.
