Life without music a waste for Badshah
Rapper Badshah (left) may be living life king size, but he admits that things would not have been the same if he had chosen a different profession.
“Initially, music was a hobby for me. It was while pursuing engineering that I realised I like music more than anything else. I realised that my life would go waste if I do not make music, so I started writing songs, which eventually got me a lot of attention,” says Badshaah, who has delivered hits such as Saturday Saturday and Abhi To Party Shuru Hui Hai.
The Delhi-born musician is glad that he came across helpful people in the music industry, who brought him closer to success. “I haven’t had any formal training, but it’s the passion that keeps me going. Fortunately, I met the right people. They taught me a lot and assisted me in many ways,” he says.
Besides Bollywood music, Badshah, whose independent singles such as Bandook and Inception also created a lot of buzz, believes in creating different kinds of music. “I like to maintain a balance between commercial partykind of songs and the ones like Bandook in which I talk about life in general. I like to experiment with whatever I do,” he says, adding that he, in fact, wants to pay more attention to independent music now. “Bollywood has been really kind but as an independent artist, I now have more freedom.”
