"I've told the world my story."
Yo Yo Honey Singh announced that he is working with Netflix to create a new documentary on his life and career.
The rapper announced the news on his 40th birthday.
The documentary will be directed by Mozez Singh and produced by Guneet Monga under her banner Sikhya Entertainment.
A post read: “Singh-ing on top of our voices because Honey Singh’s latest documentary comes soon on Netflix!”
The teaser shows Honey rapping about his life and reflecting on how far he has come.
He said: “This life that God has given me, there’s a depth to it. That reminds me of my younger self. I’ve told the world my story.”
The teaser also shows clips of Honey’s live performances and of him inside the recording studio.
Fans were excited by the announcement.
One said: “What a comeback by him for his fans.
“Earlier he was dropping 1 song in a few months but now 2 to 3 songs per month. He is now very consistent.
“He is doing a lot of hard work for his fans. He is truly an inspiration excited for this documentary.”
Mozez Singh’s documentary will look into Honey’s life and career as well as his sudden break.
The documentary looks to feature Yo Yo Honey Singh opening about the highs and lows of his life. The documentary will also feature interviews with his family members, friends and music collaborators who have been by his side.
The rapper enjoyed a fast rise to stardom but then stepped away from the entertainment industry in 2015. He has since returned to making music, with his third album Honey 3.0 set to release later in 2023.
The documentary will be produced by Guneet Monga, who recently won an Oscar for ‘Best Documentary Short’ for her film The Elephant Whisperers.
In a statement, the producer said: “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.”
The documentary is expected to be released later in 2023 on Netflix.
