Badshah is one of the most celebrated rapper-singers in India. The rapper became a household name in the last few years, with his back to back hits.
Recently, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Badshah reveals that he was dumped by his girlfriend, for choosing this profession of rapping.
While speaking about the same, the rapper said, “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.’”

When he was asked, how did you recover from the breakup? He said, “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.”
However, things got better when he started making good money. “One fine day, I brought this expensive car and parked it in front of my house. Dad asked, ‘Whose car is this?’ I was like, ‘It’s mine.’ He was like, ‘How did you get this?’ I told him that I do music and then it occurred to him that isse paise bhi aate hai,” Badshah said.
Badshah’s father was always concerned about the stability of his income and nothing else mattered to him. The star rapper added, “For him, it didn’t matter ki main TV pe aa raha hoon. For him, what mattered was, ‘Are you making enough money to survive?’ Because this is not a conventional job. It’s fine if you are on TV and people are taking pictures with you but where is the money? That is what parents are concerned about.”
Badshah is known for his hits DJ Wale Babu, Wakhra Swag, Kar gayi chull, Abhi toh party shuru hui hai, Tareefan among others.
