Rap­per Aditya Singh (above), pop­u­larly known by his stage name Bad­shah, has col­lab­o­rated with artists like Yo Yo Honey Singh and Daljit Dosanjh, but he says that col­lab­o­ra­tions are a mat­ter of un­der­stand­ing and he’d never ap­proach some­one. “I’m open to col­lab­o­ra­tions but I don’t ap­proach any­one. I think ev­ery artist even­tu­ally gets very busy in mak­ing a ca­reer. Col­lab­o­rat­ing with some other artist is all about mu­tual un­der­stand­ing and com­ing to­gether to work in a mu­tu­ally con­ducive space,” says Baad­shah, who has given hit tracks such as Ban­dook, Get Up Jawaani and Proper Pa­tola. He later ven­tured into Bol­ly­wood with his track Satur­day Satur­day be­ing picked in the movie Humpty Sharma Ki Dul­ha­nia (2014).

While his pop­u­lar­ity ex­panded with the Bol­ly­wood tag, the rap­per does not con­sider it his ul­ti­mate des­ti­na­tion. “I can’t say about other mu­si­cians, but I don’t think Bol­ly­wood is my ul­ti­mate des­ti­na­tion. I don’t deny that it’s a re­ally big plat­form, but for me, the only aim is to cre­ate new con­tent and good mu­sic,” he says.

The Abhi To Party Shuru Hui Hai singer is happy that peo­ple have ac­cepted his mu­sic, and glad that his work is get­ting picked up in Bol­ly­wood films. “I don’t know if my fan base has in­creased or not, all I know is that it’s been a lovely jour­ney. I just know that I will do my best,” he says.
