It feels like Yo Yo Honey Singh shot to fame almost overnight. While he was known for his music before, when Angrezi Beat made it to Cocktail, everyone suddenly took interest in him. Since then, he’s done several more songs for so many more movies, and he’s all the rage right now. On tonight’s episode of The Front Row, Anupama Chopra asked him whether this success has changed him. Check out his answer in this excerpt from the show before you tune in tonight!
Anupama Chopra: Yo! Yo! Have you changed with success?
Yo! Yo! Honey Singh: No, not at all. Never going to change as well. A true artist never changes, that’s what I believe. I know lots of legends but they haven’t changed, they’re still like that. I am so lucky, all these superstars pulled me up to Bollywood. I was doing a little small music scene back in Chandigarh. They called me up for Cocktail. Superstars like Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and later Akshay (Kumar) paaji and after that Shah Rukh Khan saab. He is like a legend. We just did one tour with Shah Rukh Khan saab and I learned a lot. He is Shah Rukh. He doesn’t think that he is Shah Rukh Khan, the King Khan. He never says that, I never heard him saying, “Okay, I am the baadshah, you know, tu jaanta hain na, mujhse bada koi nahin.” He always talks like my bada paaji. He is very low key. I think this is the time everybody might be thinking, ke ab iska dimaag kharaab ho jaayega. So I am blessed by God that God gave me these people to look up to. You are not even one percent of them.
