According to the media reports, rapper will be turning actor in debutant director Shilpi Dasgupta’s yet untitled project.
“This year I have undertaken many firsts, including my debut as a producer and now as an actor. Bhushanji and Mrigh (Bhushan Kumar, Mrighdeep Lamba, producers) convinced me that the role was perfect for me. It’s a unique film and it brings a smile to my face. Getting to work with Sonakshi was like a bonus as she is a dear friend,” Badshah told a leading daily.
