Singer and rapper Badshah will be making his acting debut with Khandaani Shafakhana with Sonakshi Sinha and Varun Sharma. The movie revolves around a girl who inherits her uncle’s sex clinic and her constant efforts to try and normalize conversations about sex. Badshah, who plays the role of a famous singer facing sexual disorder, has been offered similar roles in the past and he opened up about them not working out exclusively to Bollywood Hungama.
He said, “When I was offered Lust Stories, I thought Karan sir is joking. He told me the role is of a Punjabi guy who cannot satisfy his wife and I laughed it off. I was skeptical of it, Karan sir asked me to trust him, this happened when we were judging a reality show together and I felt like I was not ready to act. My priority was making music back then.” He further spoke about the second time Karan approached him with Good News’ script, “I remember I was on a trek in Manali and I noticed that Karan sir had called me around 5-6 times and I asked him what the matter was, he then explained to me that there’s a role like this. I thought he wanted me to do a song, and when I went to meet him, Shashank Khaitan was also there. Things didn’t work out for some other reason but I’m really happy that Diljit is doing it.”
