Directed by Mozez Singh, the documentary will trace the rise, fall, and resurgence of the King of Desi hip hop and rap, capturing his highs and lows, controversies, and sudden disappearance at the peak of his career.
Yo Yo Honey Singh entered the music industry in 2003 with his Punjabi raps, and by 2011, he had taken the industry by storm with several hit songs, including Brown Rang, Desi Kalakaar, Blue Eyes, and many more. He has been credited with infusing the genre of desi hip hop into mainstream pop culture, making it an integral part of the music business in India.
However, Yo Yo Honey Singh’s sudden disappearance from the public eye in 2015 raised concerns among his fans, the industry, and the media. Reports of his struggle with alcoholism, bipolar disorder, and depression surfaced, and he took a break from music to focus on his health. In 2018, he made a comeback with the song Dil Chori from the movie Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, which was a massive hit.
Now, in the Netflix documentary, Yo Yo Honey Singh will share his raw and candid revelations about his personal and professional journey, including behind-the-scenes moments straight from him, as well as sit-downs with his family members, friends, and music collaborators. He hopes to give his fans an honest and sincere account of his life, upbringing, and his current journey to return stronger.
In a statement, Yo Yo Honey Singh said, “I have spoken about my personal and career issues in the media before, but I’ve never been able to bare it all. I have received tremendous love from my fans, and they deserve to know the whole story. This Netflix docu-film will give everyone an honest and sincere account of my life, my upbringing, where I’ve been, and my current journey to return stronger.”
Oscar-winning producer Guneet Monga, who is producing the documentary, added, “Yo Yo Honey Singh took over the Indian music industry by storm. His music resonated with the youth. Singh was a star even before he garnered limelight in the press. His tumultuous journey with fame intrigued a whole nation, and us at Sikhya. This was a story I wanted to explore. Thankfully, Netflix has always supported and given unique, diverse local stories to a global audience, creating a space for a perfect fit for a bare-it-all, authentic docu-film like this. We’re excited for you to meet the man behind the country’s rap and hip-hop music and learn about the journey that led to his clout and the controversy that followed.”
