Yo Yo Honey Singh on battling depression: Shah Rukh & Deepika helped him a lot

Yo Yo Honey Singh stands tall among all rappers in Indian music and rap. Despite the two-and-a-half year sabbatical that threw him off the chart, Honey came back and proved all his detractors wrong. His journey has been nothing short of inspiring.

From facing rejections and dejection at an early age to battling depression and alcoholism while at the top of his career, he’s seen the best and the worst. Talking about the time when he battled depression & alcoholism, he said, “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 artists is like a mirror for an audience. When we can share every bit of our lives, why not this?

He further adds, “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.” The family was a constant support to him, he asserts. “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.”
