A documentary film about the life of hip hop musician and rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh is due to come on Netflix, the streaming site announced on Wednesday.
The project, dubbed a “bare-it-all docu-film,” would see Yo Yo Honey Singh delve deeply into life and his abrupt absence at the height of his career, shocking the industry and fans and attracting a lot of media attention.
It will capture the rapper’s personal and professional journey, with behind-the-scenes moments straight from Hirdesh Singh, better known by his stage name Yo Yo Honey Singh, himself alongside sit-downs with his family members, friends and music collaborators who have been by his side through it all.

Yo Yo Honey Singh claimed he had previously spoken to the media about his personal and professional problems but has never been able to “bare it all.”
“I have received tremendous love from my fans, and they deserve to know the whole story. This Netflix docu-film will give everyone an honest and sincere account of my life, my upbringing, where I’ve been and my current journey to return stronger,” said the musical artist, known for songs such as “Brown Rang”, “Desi Kalakaar”, and “Lungi Dance”, in a statement.
Mozez Singh is the documentary’s director, while Guneet Monga and Achin Jain of Sikhya Entertainment—the company that recently won an Oscar for “The Elephant Whisperers”—are in charge of its production.
Monga claimed that she had always been attracted by Yo Yo Honey Singh’s “tumultuous journey with fame,” which had captured the interest of the entire nation.
“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 producer added.
Later this year, the documentary will make its Netflix debut.
