Featuring real-life singers, the 10-episode series will see two musicians jamming in each episode. "AR Rahman, Raftaar, Arijit Singh, Sonu Nigam and Kailash Kher have been approached," adds the source. Co-produced by One Digital Entertainment, the series goes on floors by the month-end and will be shot in a four-week schedule across London, Dubai, Croatia and Switzerland.

The musical will be launched on Zee Network's video-on-demand platform, Z5.Besides dabbling in production, Badshah is also keen on kick-starting a talent management initiative that will groom YouTube stars and offer them platforms to showcase their skills.
