When it comes to pop songs and raps in the Bollywood one cannot forget to mention popular singer Yo Yo Honey Singh. However, for two and a half years he had taken the break from the industry he is back now even stronger and proved his critics wrong. His life journey is full of inspiration and motivating for his fans and followers.
The artist has faced struggle and has come across several things like rejections, combating mental stress and depression, and even alcoholism at the time he was at the peak of his career. Along with these he also has stardom for being one of the most popular celebrity singers.
In an interview with the popular news portal, he expressed how he overcame depression and alcoholism. He revealed, “It was a terrible phase for me. A lot was going on with my mental well being. I had become an alcoholic as well. I used to not sleep so the disease started growing slowly inside me. It took me 3-4 months to accept that I’m actually not well. It was a dark phase and I would request everyone to not hide it. Especially, an artist is like a mirror for an audience. When we can share every bit of our lives, why not this?”
Furthermore, he said, “People asked me where I had disappeared for two and a half years. So then I felt it’s important to speak up. I was unwell and I got well. I remember making Dheere Dheere for Hrithik Roshan during that phase and it turned out to be the biggest hit at that time.”
Rapper also shared how his family and friends from the industry supported him in this phase. He said, “The entire family and friends took care of me. In fact, there are many people from the industry who supported me. Shah Rukh Bhai and Deepika Padukone helped me and since Deepika has also been through a similar phase, so she shared a Delhi based doctor’s number with my family for me. They all prayed for me to get well and main theek ho gaya.”
