Honey Singh, 33-years-old Indian pop star who have been disappeared for about 2 years is back now with a bang. There were news about Honey Singh that he’s in rehab but Honey denied all these rumors and revealed the real reason of this absence.
Honey Singh, real name Hirdesh,told: ‘The last 18 months were the darkest phase of my life, and I wasn’t in a state to talk to anyone. I know there were rumours that I was in rehab, but I was in my Noida house throughout. The truth is I was suffering from bipolar disorder. It went on for 18 months, during which I changed four doctors, the medication wasn’t working on me and crazy things were happening. I must confess that I was bipolar and an alcoholic, which aggravated the condition.’
Soon to be seen in Punjabi film Zorawar, the singer-turned-actor revealed that for a year he did not respond to the medication. ‘At one point, I thought I would live in this darkness forever. I had cut myself off from everyone. I didn’t come out of my room, forget stepping out of the house. I had a beard and I didn’t get a haircut for months. For someone who has performed in front of a crowd of 20,000, I was scared of facing 4-5 people. That’s what bipolar disorder does to you,’ he said in the interview.
He further added that ‘Nothing like that ever happened. During my low phase, a lot of people visited my place, including Bhushanji (Bhushan Kumar of T-Series). I got calls from Shah Rukh bhai, too. Recently, I met him at a show and we were chatting about films and music. He is amazing, he’s not just a great actor, but also a superb personality’
“In that phase, I wrote 50-60 poems. They are like khuli shayari, so I can’t make them into songs. One night when I couldn’t sleep in spite of popping sleeping pills, I wrote and composed a song called Rise and Shine, after seeing my mom break down. She is the only reason I am here today,” he said. We wish him health and prosperity ahead and hope that soon he’ll show up with some great ‘Yo Yo’ type songs to rule our hearts again.
