Post comeback, I faced failure, people didn’t accept my ‘new fat look’: Honey Singh

Honey Singh

Honey Singh has had his share of ups and downs in life and career. The rapper-singer remembered the time when he was dealing with bipolar disorder and had psychotic symptoms. And in an interview recently, he even confessed that there was a ‘serious problem’ with him and things were wrong. He wanted to fix things and was trying to make a comeback too.  

Honey revealed, “A lot of things were going on in my life when I fell ill. I had the SLAM tour with superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Then I was working on a Star Plus project where I chose the name of the project too. In fact, I even designed the show for a year. And when the show started, there was a lot of work there as well. Then, I was doing a Punjabi film that time. So, too many things were happening at the same time. One day, on the sets of ‘Raw Star’, I collapsed! I had bipolar disorder and symptoms of psychosis. I was like, there’s something wrong with my brain, something has happened. I want to fix it.”

When Honey was going through a ‘bad health issue’ phase, his family members suffered too. They faced losses and were sued as well. “I wanted to fix things and get back to work. It took me almost five years to get better. And when I did get well, I wanted to make music,” Honey recalled and added, “I told my mother, ‘I’m unable to do anything’. She advised me, ‘You started your career as a composer, so write something. I did that, and my songs were doing well. I made a comeback, but still faced failures. Post my recovery, I had gained a lot of weight and I remember people told me, ‘This isn’t your comeback. You don’t look like earlier, the swag was missing. This look isn’t good’. My songs became hits, but it was difficult for people to accept me for my body weight.”

Social media not only helps me stay visible and relevant, but also have a source of income: Alaya F

Alaya F

Alaya F made her entry in Bollywood with Saif ALi Khan starrer ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’. And after a three year gap we saw her in Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Freddy’. Even though she was missing from action in those three years, social media kept her in the limelight for her fans. The actress, who’ll next be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat’, gets vocal in a chat…

Talking about social media, which kept her connected to her fans during those three year gap, she said, “There’s no such mystery left in the life of an actor in today’s time, thanks to social media. Our fans have access to us a lot of time and I think that’s fine. Because we’ve signed up for it to be part of the industry. And I believe, as an actor, you’ll always want your fans or people to see you a lot more. So, I don’t worry about keeping any mystery on my social media. Whenever I want to take a break, I take a break. At least that’s in our hands.”

Moreover, Alaya feels it’s important for a celebrity to be on social media. It not only gave her visibility, but was a source of income too. “It’s important to be active on social media. It was a big blessing for me at least during the three-year gap between my first ‘Jawaani Janna’ and second film, ‘Freddy’. It helped me to not only stay visible and relevant, but also have a source of income. No matter how much I hate social media, I’m grateful for it as it gave me a great foundation that I managed to continue in Freddy. Now, I want to be active because I’ve realised that if you use social media correctly, it can be really powerful in the right ways.

Naatu Naatu composer MM Keeravani is a great musician; just that he’s underrated: AR Rahman

AR Rahman

SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has been making news for the past few weeks. Be it winning Golden Globe for the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ or being nominated for Oscars 2023, composer MM Keeravani is a national name now. The Oscar-Golden Globe-Grammy awards winner, AR Rahman said, spoke about MM Keeravani in a recent interview.

Expressing that Keeravani is ‘underrated’, he said, “You know what? MM Keeravani is a great composer, it’s just that he’s underrated. And I’m not sure if it’s true, Keeravani wanted to quit music in 2015 and retire. In fact, that’s when his career had actually started. And everyone noticed it. I believe when someone thinks their life is over, that’s when your life starts. You just need to live. I even tell my kids the same, ‘that gentleman (Keeravani), who’s been in the industry for 35 years, wanted to quit so early when his career actually started at that point.” 

This video of Rahman’s interview about Keeravani has been appreciated on social media. And many users have also praised him for his positive and inspirational statements. Moreover, Keeravani will be conferred with Padma Shri this year, who once thought of quitting and wanted to retire in 2015.

To complete my film ‘Emergency’, I mortgaged every single thing I owned: Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut finished the shoot of her much awaited film ‘Emergency’ recently. But finishing this film wasn’t an easy journey for the actress. She went through a lot of ups and downs while finishing this period drama where she plays former PM, Indira Gandhi.

Talking about all the difficulties she faced to complete the film, Kangana recently said, “Whatever task I take up, I make sure I finish it. But to finish the film, I had to mortgage all my properties, every single thing I owned as I am also banking the film as a producer. Moreover, mortgaging all my property to complete the film wasn’t a big deal. I am someone who makes all my big decisions within minutes. The main struggle was running to banks back-to-back while shooting the film. Somehow, it hampers your work big time.”

Kangana, who made her entry into Bollywood with ‘Gangster’ in 2006, also spoke about her initial days in Bollywood. “When I came to Mumbai, I had only ₹500. So, if I lose all my property after ‘Emergency’ release and I’m completely ruined, it won’t matter much. I am very confident and strong enough to stand up on my feet once again and bounce back. Such possessions hold no meaning for me to be frank,” said Kangana to the paparazzi during the ‘Emergency’ wrap-up party held recently.
