DID YOU KNOW? RAPPER BADSHAH WAS FIRST OFFERED 'GOOD NEWS'

Popular rapper-composer Badshah could have made his acting debut with Karan Johar's segment in "Lust Stories". Instead, he focussed on his debut album titled "ONE". He wants to hit the gym and get fitter to act, but says that he doesn't see himself playing a lead role in a film.

"I got acting offers in the past. '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," Badshah, whose given name is Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia, told IANS here.

Talking about his musical journey which found space in his album, he said: "I don't have an MBA, I don't have a qualification in music, but I am doing both -- business and music -- and I am doing quite well. So it's about how I have been able to come here."

This month, he even turned a producer. The digital entertainment platform ZEE5 has launched "Lockdown" -- in collaboration with Badshah. The show marks his debut as a producer under his banner Afterhours, co-produced by One Digital Entertainment.

But he feels he has just begun the journey.

"There is a lot more (to do). The tangible benchmark for me is to be the number one guy on the Forbes list. You need to have a few businesses running and influence and you have to be great at your skill. I want to inspire people to... become dynamic," said Badshah, who also has his own clothing brand.
