MUMBAI: Badshah is best known for giving us various chartbusters and now he is ready to surprise us with something new. Badshah will be making his Bollywood debut with filmmaker Shilpi Dasgupta’s untitled next.
A slice of life film, Badshah will be seen opposite Sonakshi Sinha in the film. The untitled project will also feature Varun Sharma, Annu Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Nadira Babbar in important roles. The film features rapper-composer as a famous singer who hails from Punjab, which is very much like his own real-life story.
Talking about the film, Badshah said, “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 a very dear friend and the others like Varun Sharma.”
While rest of the cast started shooting for the film January 25 onwards, Badshah has started shooting from today. The film is bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar who has earlier worked with Badshah on various projects.
