Badshah is a name that hardly needs an introduction. From being the coolest rap king around the town to being the fashion icon of many, he has encompassed both fame and fans in the recent years. Although known for his party numbers and beat songs, Badshah literally surprised his fans when he released Heartless from his album O.N.E. last year. And now, he is back with another surprise and although we always prayed for it, we did not see this one coming....
Throwing our Monday blues right outta those windows, we have come across Badshah's latest Insta post thay he will be making his silver screen debut soon.
The singer-rapper will be seen in debutant director Shilpi Dasgupta's yet-to-be-titled film. Sharing the screen space with him will be the Dabangg-girl Sonakshi Sinha. Other actors who will be seen alongside Badshah and Sonakshi will be Varun Sharma, Annu Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Nadira Babbar.
Badshah will be seen playing a character quite similar to his own life, a famous Punjabi singer. In fact, he is set to join the film's star cast in Punjab soon. The film will be produced by Bhushan Kumar and Mrighdeep Lamba. Badshah was quoted saying,
"This year I have undertaken many firsts, including my debut as a producer and now as an actor. Bhushanji and Mrigh (Bhushan Kumar, Mrighdeep Lamba, producers) convinced me that the role was perfect for me. It’s a unique film and it brings a smile to my face. Getting to work with Sonakshi was like a bonus as she is a dear friend."
Even Bhushan Kumar talked about his confidence in Badshah, and said,
"When I read the script and the character sketch, the only person who came to my mind was Badshah. Just like his screen persona, he is a jovial and funny Punjabi guy. It took a while to persuade him to take up the role, but I am glad he finally came on board."
Well, we also share the same sentiment Mr. Kumar. We are a fan of his songs and style. It is a given that we will love him on the big screen as well. Looking forward to more on this one..... Eagerly!!!!
