Rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has revealed that though several Bollywood celebs supported him during his mental struggles but Akshay Kumar in particular insisted that they speak on the phone. In an interview, Honey said that he wasn’t talking on the phone when he was at his lowest but his mother told him that Akshay was insistent.
In an interview, Honey said, “Sab log saath they. Main phone pe baat nahi kar paata tha, lekin Akshay paaji se do-teen baari phone pe bhi baat kari maine. Mummy ne bola paaji se baat kar, woh tere se baat hi karke maanenge, aise maan nahi rahe. Paaji ne samjhaya mujhe kaafi kuch, ke sab theek ho jayega. Suggest bhi kiya tha ke South India mein ek ayurveda ka program hota hai, woh join kar, usse help milegi kaafi. Main gaya nahi tha wahan. Sabne support kiya, sabne pyaar kiya (Everybody was with me. I wouldn’t talk on the phone, but I spoke to Akshay a few times. My mother told me he wouldn’t take no for an answer. He told me everything will be okay, and suggested an ayurveda program in South India. He said it could help. I didn’t go. But everybody was supportive and loving).”
Honey has come forward to speak about his mental health struggles and drugs problem in interviews over the last few years. He is now trying to stage a comeback to music with a new album.
