I work hard on every song and try to outdo myself: Yo Yo Honey Singh
Mumbai: Rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, who has been dubbed as the current singing sensation of Bollywood, says he is glad to have been accepted by the industry but his struggles have not ended yet as he tries to outdo himself every time.
"I am overwhelmed for whatever I have achieved so far. I give the credit to my mother and everyone who has helped me. I do four-five songs a year and I am glad they are liked. I don't think struggle ever gets over.. it will always be there," Honey said in an interview here.
With string of recent hits like- 'Chaar Botal Vodka', 'Sunny Sunny', 'Party All Night', 'Lungi Dance' and others, Honey Singh has managed to make a mark for himself in Bollywood.
"I don't take my work ever for granted. I still work very hard on every song and try to outdo myself every time," he said.
The 31-year-old singer-composer, who started his career as a music director in Punjab, has been roped for entertainment channel Star Plus's new singing reality show 'India's Raw Star'.
"When Punjabis all over the world admired my work, there was buzz in Bollywood as well. The team of 'Cocktail' (Saif Ali Khan's film) approached me for 'Angrezi Beat' song, which I think was the first step," he said.
The singer has teamed up with Bollywood biggies like Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar (with whom he has worked in three films) to deliver superhit songs.
"After 'Cocktail', Akshay paaji called me. I am grateful to Shah Rukh Khan for giving me love, respect and opportunity like 'Lungi Dance'," Honey said.
On the latest trend of actors and actresses singing their own films, Honey says, it's a good trend.
