Yo Yo Honey Singh appeared with Guru Randhawa, and Divya Khosla on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote his music video, Designer.
Yo Yo Honey Singh became the latest guest on the popular comedy show, The Kapil Sharma Show. The rapper revealed an interesting anecdote about the making of his superhit songs, Lungi Dance and Aunty police bula legi, which left everyone in splits on the show.
Honey was accompanied by singer Guru Randhawa and actress Divya Khosla Kumar. They appeared to promote their music video titled Designer. The show host Kapil Sharma welcomed Honey on the show while praising his style, and fitness. He also spoke about Lungi Dance, that’s when the rapper shared about Shah Rukh Khan offering him the song. For the unversed, Lungi Dance is a popular song from SRK’s Chennai Express.
Honey shared that SRK first asked him to compose a Punjabi track for his film, which he refused. He then asked the superstar to narrate the film’s story which took two and half hours. After this meeting, he went to Mauritius where it struck him about Lungi Dance. He called SRK’s friend Karim and told him that the song is ready.
Honey further said that Karim asked him to mail the song, to which he responded confidently, 'jab banwana tha toh ghar bulaya and ab ban gaya toh mail karo.' (When it was to be made, I was called home and now it is made, you asked to mail). Eventually, he went to SRK and narrated the entire song.
Later, one of the women from the audience asked Honey about the song, ‘Aunty police bula legi’. She happened to be a school principal. Responding to her, the rapper revealed that when he began composing songs, his father would object to it and say that he won’t earn money from it, but his mom had supported him. “I wanted to throw a party when my parents won’t be home. And whenever I would throw one, the neighbourhood aunty would actually call the cops,” he shared.
Meanwhile, during the episode, Honey also revealed that Apache and Amar Singh Chamkila are an inspiration to him. He also shared how lyricist Gulzar improvised the lines of one of his songs for a movie by Vishal Bhardwaj.
