After regaling fans with several chart toppers in recent years, singer-rapper Badshah will soon be seen in debutant director Shilpi Dasguptas upcoming film starring Sonakshi Sinha.

The yet untitled project is being produced by Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and is being written by Gautam Mehra.

The cast has already started shoot in Punjab from January 25.

Badshah, who will be essaying a character close to his real self, said, I am extremely nervous however I have taken the leap. This year I have undertaken many firsts, with my debut as a producer and now as an actor. Bhushanji and Mrigh both kept convincing me on how perfect the role is for me. Its a film which is so unique and different, whenever I think of it, brings a smile to my face. The added advantage is working with a super talented bunch and also my buddy Sonakshi who is very dear friend and the others like Varun Sharma.

He adds, "The character is basically who I am in real life a singer-rapper from Punjab who is happy go lucky, likes humour. All this and after lots of convincing I gave in and have agreed to do the role. The team has started shooting for the film in Punjab, I will join them today.

The cast of the film includes Sonakshi Sinha along with Varun Sharma, Annu Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Nadira Babbar. The film is supposed to hit theatres on August 2. (ANI)
