Indian rap star Badshah believes sex shouldn't be shunned away as a taboo topic, and says he can't wait to have a sex talk with his daughter at the right age and plans to make it fun for her. "Can't you talk to your parents about sex? I can't. But that is something that we all must do," he said. The singer added, "I have a daughter and I can't wait to have this chat with her, of course at an appropriate age. I want her to know everything. I don't know how. Probably she will feel awkward like what happened to papa all of a sudden. I know I have to make it fun."
Badshah had a daughter back in 2017. The rap star has picked a script which tackles the issue of sex education in India to mark his acting debut in Bollywood. He will be seen as a Punjabi popstar Gabru Ghaatak in his debut film 'Khandaani Shafakhana'. The movie is slated to release on August 2, and aims to put the spotlight on the issue of how Indian society considers sex a taboo topic through the journey of Sonakshi Sinha's character as shhe inherits her dead uncle's sex clinic.
The 'Abhi toh Party Shuru Hui Hai' singer said he is fortunate that he got sex education while growing up. "I was fortunate enough that I had sex education in my school. I did my schooling from Delhi. Sex is (very) natural. You need to know about the disorders, the importance of practising safe sex, importance of planning a family. Look at the population of the country. We all need to know about all these things."
When asked about another issue close to his heart, Badshah said, "I grew up predominantly in Haryana, Punjab and Delhi. As soon as you move away from Delhi towards Punjab and Haryana. I think the girl child is still a taboo. People don't want to have a girl child. You get to know that wealth doesn't bring wisdom. You will be surprised to know the thoughts of people."
