A documentary on the life of hip-hop artist and rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh will soon arrive on Netflix, the streaming platform announced on Wednesday.
Netflix released a teaser of the documentary in which Honey Singh made the release announcement in his quintessential rap-style: “Hongi kuch (There will be some) tricks, coming soon on Netflix.”

Touted as a “bare-it-all docu-film", the project will see Yo Yo Honey Singh deep-dive into life and his sudden disappearance at the peak of his career. It will capture the rapper's personal and professional journey, with behind-the-scenes moments straight from Hirdesh Singh aka Yo Yo Honey Singh himself alongside sit-downs with his family members, friends and music collaborators.
"I have received tremendous love from my fans and they deserve to know the whole story,” Honey said in a statement.
"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," he added. The singer-rapper is known for songs such as Brown Rang, Desi Kalakaar, and Lungi Dance.
The documentary is directed by Mozez Singh and produced by Guneet Monga and Achin Jain of Sikhya Entertainment, the banner that recently bagged an Oscar for The Elephant Whisperers.
Guneet said she always wanted to explore Yo Yo Honey Singh's "tumultuous journey with fame.”
"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,” she said.
"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.
The documentary will premiere on Netflix later this year.
