He is credited for numerous hit songs. And he creates quite a storm when he takes up the mic. We're talking about Badshah, who has been there in the industry for years now. But looks like he is now up for a major change! Moving on from being just a rapper, he is now set to debut as an actor. The film will be directed by Shilpi Dasgupta and will star Sonakshi Sinha and Varun Sharma in pivotal roles, reports Mid-Day.
"I am extremely nervous. However, now that I have taken the leap, I will give it my best. Bhushanji (producer Bhushan Kumar) and Mrigh (producer Mrigdeep Singh Lamba) both kept convincing me on how perfect the role is for me. It's a film which is so unique and different," he told IANS. Earlier, he had revealed that he let go of a number of acting opportunities. "'Good News'... the one that Diljit Dosanjh is doing with Akshay Kumar, was offered to me. I was offered Vicky Kaushal's role in 'Lust Stories', which I had declined," he had told the news agency.
