Badshah recently appeared on the popular game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 13’ for the ‘Shaandaar Shukriya’ special week, along with singer, Neha Kakkar. Host Amitabh Bachchan could not help but ask him the reason behind his unique stage name. And, Badshah's answer is sure to charm you.
Revealing the reason behind having ‘Badshah’ as his stage name, the rapper, whose real name is Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia, said, “I initially had a name, ‘Cool Equal’ which was my e-mail id, I then used it as my stage name. After that, I was looking to change the name and look for a new stage name. I am a big fan of Shah Rukh sir (Shah Rukh Khan) and around that time, his film ‘Badshah’ (1999) released. From then on, my stage name, Badshah’ was born.”
Amitabh Bachchan then asked Badshah that if he was a rapper, what would his stage name be? To this Badshah said, “AB Baby.” Listening to this, the whole crowd cheered and started calling Big B, “AB Baby!”
Neha Kakkar and Badshah won Rs 25 lakh on the show and the winning proceeds of the episode will be donated to Faith and Smile Charitable Trust.
