Rapper Badshah says he always wanted to enter the music industry, and did engineering only for his parents.

“I always wanted to do something in music and went for engineering only for my parents. I had performed for the first time on stage for my college festival,” Badshah said in a statement.

“I still remember after a lot of begging we got an opportunity to open for Euphoria and were asked to perform for 15 minutes. When we started 15 minutes turned into 30 minutes then those 30 turned into 45; audience wouldn’t let us go. It was a crazy night,” he added.

The rapper, known for chartbusters like “Saturday Saturday”, “Chull”, “DJ waley babu” and “Abhi toh party shuru hui hai”, opened up about how his career in music started when he appeared on “Midnight Misadventures with Mallika Dua” hosted by comedienne Mallika Dua.

The show will go on air with Badshah’s episode on September 17 on TLC.

Sharing her views about the rapper, Mallika said: “Badshah is one of the most intelligent and entrepreneurial individuals in the industry and I am delighted that he is part of the inaugural episode.

“It was fun shooting with him; we gelled almost from the word go — a sharp contrast from the shy start we made when we first met for a shoot of a different show earlier this year. I loved the point when we danced together on his new song.” (IANS)

Rapper Badshah made his acting debut this year and he says now he has newfound respect for filmmakers and actors.

Although the film “Khandaani Shafakhana”, which marked his debut as an actor, failed to create fireworks at the box office, his experience of working on it will “always be one of the biggest learning experiences of my life”.

“I was lucky to be part of a tremendous team who were more of friends and made me feel very comfortable with what I was doing. It was amazing to be among such hardworking people as Sonakshi (Sinha). Playing Gabru was both, difficult and easy for me because I had seen so many Punjabi pop stars while growing up and I already had a character lay out in mind,” he said.

“It was while executing it in front of the camera, with his own nuances and then the complete transition in the last courtroom scene, was the challenge,” he added.

His co-star Sonakshi had played a “very important role” in helping him decide and go ahead with the film.

“She read the script first and had recommended my name. When I spoke to her, she made me go for it. I did not have to prepare much for the role. I had a certain image of Gabru in my mind from the moment I heard the script and I was just going with the flow. I definitely have a lot of newfound respect for filmmakers and actors after this experience. I think the whole process was a lot of fun,” said Badshah.

“Khandaani Shafakhana” will be aired on Sony MAX on November 22. (IANS)
