Rap­per-singer Yo Yo Honey Singh has had a very in­ter­est­ing jour­ney in Bol­ly­wood, with his songs top­ping the charts, and live shows go­ing house­full.

How­ever, the rap­per dis­ap­peared from the mu­sic in­dus­try around 2014. He later re­vealed that he’d taken the break be­cause he was un­der­go­ing treat­ment for bipo­lar dis­or­der.

Now, sources say that the rap­per-singer has been ap­proached by sev­eral film­mak­ers, who want to make a film on his life. A source says, “Af­ter real-life sto­ries of pop­u­lar per­son­al­i­ties like crick­eter Ma­hen­dra Singh Dhoni and ac­tor San­jay Dutt, it seems the story of Honey’s life has cap­ti­vated film­mak­ers. He has been ap­proached by a cou­ple of di­rec­tors over the past year. In fact, they’ve been in talks with Honey’s team for more than six months.”

Honey has be­come one of world’s top artists, and has fans across the globe. He saw suc­cess with the song Gabru from his 2011 al­bum, In­ter­na­tional Vil­lager, but shot to fame af­ter his song An­grezi Beat was fea­tured in the Bol­ly­wood movie, Cock­tail (2012). He later de­liv­ered hits such as Lungi Dance, Blue Eyes, Desi Kalaakar, High Heels and Dheere Dheere.

“The film will show­case his story, his strug­gle, his en­try into the mu­sic in­dus­try, the ups and downs in his life, in­clud­ing the fact that he had been suf­fer­ing from bipo­lar dis­or­der,” adds the source. Honey Singh was not avail­able for com­ment.
