While he was on a massive career high, Yo Yo Honey Singh decided to quit the industry to deal with alcoholism and depression. Although the singer has always been open about the mental issues he faced, he recently went on to confess that he also faced bipolar disorder. In a recent interview, he also spoke about the reactions he received after his comeback. The singer revealed that his songs were accepted by the people but he was not.
In an interview with Siddharth Kanan, Yo Yo Honey Singh said, “When I fell ill a lot of things were going on in life. I had the SLAM tour with Shah Rukh Khan. I had worked on a Star Plus project, I chose its name. I designed it for a year. When the show started, a lot of work was there. I was also doing a Punjabi film. A lot of things were happening. When I collapsed, when I had bipolar disorder and psychotic symptoms on set of Raw Star, maine kaha kuch problem hai mere dimaag mein, kuch hogaya hai. Mereko isko theek karne do (I said there is some problem with my brain, something has happened. I want to fix it).”
