The rapper opened up to Shilpa about his 'darkest days in life. He talked about his depression and anxiousness.

Badshah also revealed that he used to not have food in order to stay lean. However, when he got back to work he realized that he was wrong for starving as he went out of breath within 15 minutes of his performance. He felt extremely unhappy about this fact.

Badshah further stated on the show that he now lives by a simple motto: being selfish is the only way to safeguard your mental health. "My life's priority is to be mentally fit," Badshah said when Shilpa asked him how important being mentally fit is to him.

"Because of the pressure, we endure every day, mental serenity is a luxury for me. When it comes to my mental health, I've gone through the worst of times. I've had clinical depression. I've struggled with extreme anxiety. As a result, I am certain that I will not return. You have to be selfish in a good way to avoid going there."

Badshah further quoted, "You have to live with individuals that bring you joy. You must learn to say yes and no. It is necessary for you to be joyful. We live under a lot of stress, we've created a lot of mess in our lives, and now we're complaining about how psychologically unfit we are. You must plan ahead, keep your loved ones close, and that is all there is to it."
