Making some interesting revelation Badshah mentioned that he refused the role in Lust Story. He shares, "Makers approached me for this role where I had to play the role of a Punjabi boy who isn't able to satisfy his wife. I wanted to do something else.

Hence I chose Khandani Shafakhana." He later added that he was also offered Diljit's role in Good Newwz. He says, "In Good Newwz also makers were asking me to play the role of a man who isn't able to get his wife pregnant."


Continuing the conversation Badshah shared AR Rehman's reaction to the remake of the song Humma Humma. He shares, "Initially when he heard the newest remixed version song he didn't like it at the first go. However, he started liking it gradually. He met me at a party after 5 months and expressed that he was wrong at his decision. He liked the song very much."
