‘Kuch pane ke liye, kuch khona padta hai’ this phrase stands true in case of the popular and successful rapper, Badshah. The rapper became a household name in the last few years, with his back to back hits; creating a fanbase for himself for his cool and happening numbers in Bollywood movies as well as his singles. But the rapper in his recent interview with an entertainment portal, Pinkvilla.com, revealed making several scarifies and also being dumped by his girlfriend, for choosing this profession of rapping to earn his livelihood.
The rapper revealed loving his now ex-GF from the age of 3, confessing about loving her from an early age, did warm the cockles of our heart. But she turned her back on him due to his profession, as according to her that was not a suitable profession. “I was madly in love with this girl. I was probably three years old when I fell in love with her. She was with me, but she left me because it (music career) was not a ‘proper career choice’.” ALSO READ: Badshah Comments 'Word Sir' On Vishal Dadlani's Tweet Threatening Those Remixing His Songs; Netizens Take His Case
On being asked how he recovered from his break up, he thanked his love for music that became a saviour for this rapper. "Music was my saviour, music helped me. It sounds cliche but the music was my medicine." Further adding he also mentioned having a hard time with his family, to convince them to let him pursue rapping as his career. "For music, I had to sacrifice a lot. I had to sacrifice my friends, parties, my parents and family. I had to sacrifice Aditya for Badshah.”
Along with rapping which proved to be his claim to fame, he also tried his hands at acting with the movie Khandaani Shafakhana, starring Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role.
Badshah is currently basking in the success of his latest released number from the movie Good Newwz, titled Chandigarh.
