Singer-rapper Badshah lit up his fans' Sunday with a throwback picture. He shared a photo from 17 years ago, when his employment status could simply be defined as 'awaara'.

In 2019, he made acting debut with Shilpi Dasgupta’s Khandaani Shafakhana, which also starred Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Sharma and Annu Kapoor. He also appeared on an episode of Koffee With Karan with Diljit Dosanjh.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Badshah spoke about his upcoming music. “We really couldn’t have had a better start to 2021. This year is definitely going to be memorable. I have some great music planned ahead, with some collaborations I am really looking forward to. I am collaborating with Amit Bhadana, Bali, Amit Uchana, Yuvan Shankar, Aastha Gill just to start with and you will hear all this music before March. The rest of the year must remain a pleasant surprise,” he said.
