At 38 years old, Badshah physical status not available right now. We will update Badshah's height, weight, eye color, hair color, build, and measurements.
He started his career in the music industry with the name "Cool Equal", but then changed his name to Badshah. He further is known for his catchphrase "it's your boy Badshah", often stylized as "Ish yo boy Baad-uh-sh-aa-ah".
In 2018, Badshah released his first album O.N.E. – Original Never Ends.
On 7 August 2020, the rapper released a classic pop and hip-hop album namely, 'The Power of Dreams of a Kid' which had 8 tracks and includes features from the artists namely Lisa Mishra, Sikander Kahlon, Fotty Seven, Bali and Music Producer Andy Grewal. The entire mastering and mixings of the album was done by Aditya Dev.
His 2019 song "Paagal" reached 74.8 million views on YouTube within 24 hours, setting the record for the most-viewed video in 24 hours on YouTube. BTS fans claimed that the artist had bought the views to cross the global record due to his low number of likes in the first 24 hours, but YouTube did not confirm whether the views are real or fake. The song also did not appear in the 100-position Global Top Music Videos chart for the week. However, Badshah denied it was fake views, but admitted his record label Sony Music India bought paid Google Ads.
An explanation for YouTube not acknowledging the record was that Badshah's record label Sony Music India had purchased advertisements from Google and YouTube that embedded the video or directed fans to it in some way. However, it has emerged that this is a common practice in the global music industry, and that similar practices had previously been used by the record labels of previous record holders such as Ariana Grande and Blackpink. This has cast doubt on some of the 24-hour viewership records on YouTube.
His song "Genda Phool" was released by Sony Music India in 2020. It had mixing with a Bengali folk song "Boro Loker Biti Lo". Ratan Kahar, a Bengali artist, claimed to be the original writer and composer of the folk song. Though Badshah later released a statement saying that it was a traditional Baul folk song which was not copyrighted, since folk music does not fall under copyright protections and is thus in the public domain.
He again collaborated with Jacqueline Fernandez in the song Pani Pani, the song is sung by Aastha Gill along with him. The song was instant hit and has been viewed more than 500 million times on YouTube. He further released the Bhojpuri version of the song by collaborating with Khesari Lal Yadav. He rapped in the song in Bhojpuri language. The Bhojpuri version got more in One million views in less than an hour and became first Bhojpuri song to do so.
Badshah said that Karan Johar offered him Vicky Kaushal's role in a Netflix original film "Lust Stories" and Diljit Dosanjh's role in "Good Newwz", but the popstar denied citing busy schedule and "things-didn't-work-out" things, hence below-mentioned Khandaani Shafakhana is hitherto his only film as an actor.
Badshah, in the film, played the role of himself but with a different name, Gabru Ghaatak, wherein he was a patient of the protagonist, Babita Bedi played by Sonakshi Sinha, with sex disorders who shied away to openly succour Ms. Bedi owing to the taboo around sex in Indian society.
Badshah on few occasions has talked about his business ventures, he claimed in 2018 in the song "Take Off" that he has business ventures that are worth at least 9-digits, some of his known brands are BADFIT Clothing, Dragonfly Experience, Afterhours Productions.
