Rapper-musician Badshah started shooting for his Bollywood acting debut on Monday in Punjab. Directed by Shilpi Dasgupta, the as-yet untitled film also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Sharma and Annu Kapoor. The slice-of-life drama is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba. 

Sharing his excitement, Badshah said, “I am extremely nervous, but 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 was for me. It’s a film which is so unique and different; whenever I think of it, it brings a smile to my face. The added advantage is working with a super talented bunch, including Sonakshi, who is a dear friend, and others like Varun Sharma.”

Speaking about his character in the film, Badshah added, “The character is basically who I am in real life – a singer-rapper from Punjab who is happy-go-lucky and likes humour. All this and after lots of convincing, I gave in and have agreed to do the role. The team has started shooting for the film in Punjab, I will join them today.”
