Punjabi rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has given up drinking completely to prepare for the big fight in the ring. Trained in mixed martial arts, the boxer would soon be jumping into the ring for his Global Fighting Championship league that he has started.
This is why he was very upset to read a report suggesting that he got drunk and burst into a song at a party in Mumbai.
Honey Singh said, “I went to that club for the party because it was my friend Imtiaz Khatri’s cousin’s birthday. At the party she insisted that I sing a song for her birthday. So I did. But not after having drinks, as reported. I’d sing for any friend’s happiness. I don’t have to get drunk to do so.”
“I used to be the occasional social drinker earlier. But now my intake of alcohol has ceased completely. I want to be fighting fit for the boxing ring,” he said.
Hoey Singh also said, “When I did that song I never expected it to be such a rage. I never do any song with any expectation. I guess having Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar in the song has given it that extra edge.”
