I never do any song with any expectation.

I need to focus on other things before I carry on in Bollywood. I can't be doing what I've done in 'Lungi Dance' and now the song 'Party With Bhootnath' with Bachchan over and over again. I've to reinvent myself for Bollywood.

I think acting is the most difficult one among all the performing arts.

I am glad that my fan believed in me and stood by me in my hard times and continued to enjoy my songs. That's the real victory for me.

I'd never disrespect women. I have been brought up to treat women with courtesy and dignity.

I would never sing a song which I cannot sing in front of my family.

The kind of songs I sing have been existing in Bollywood music since a long time. In fact, the reason my music is so popular amongst the millions of youth is because I sing in their own language, in their own slang, and about their lives.

The truth is I was suffering from bipolar disorder. It went on for 18 months, during which I changed four doctors, the medication wasn't working on me, and crazy things were happening.

I had to work on my own to establish myself.

If you see me as a controversial artist or controversial human being, then I could be cashing in on some reality shows. I am not doing anything like that. That's not my aim.

I don't take my work ever for granted. I still work very hard on every song and try to outdo myself every time.

I don't consider myself just a rapper or just a singer. I'm a music producer, lyricist. I'm a poet as well, and acting is also a part of big entertainment.

Have you driven a Rolls-Royce? There is a difference between a Rolls-Royce and a Nano.

I don't understand why people are going mad about the lyrics I write? Do they expect everyone to become Mirza Ghalib?

I am overwhelmed with all the love, affection, and warmth that I have been receiving for 'Dheere Dheere.' It is one of my most special works, and I am glad that so many million hearts have taken to it in such a manner.

Even the song that I did for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Gabbar' is an old number. But working with Mr Bhansali was a dream come true.

I respect women, and I have not and will never sing anything that will upset my fans.

Everything I wear is custom made.

We want to take boxing to the level of cricket.

In 2011, I released my first album called 'International Villager.' I had no support, and whatever money I had made, I put it all in the album. I shot the music video for 'Brown Rang' with one lakh dollars. I spent so much money, as I just wanted to put it up on YouTube, as I knew that my market was there, and it became a huge hit.

I am happy film stars are singing in their films. I hope to work as a music director for a film where actors will sing all the songs.

I had cut myself off from everyone. I didn't come out of my room, forget stepping out of the house. I had a beard, and I didn't get a haircut for months. For someone who has performed in front of a crowd of 20,000, I was scared of facing 4-5 people. That's what bipolar disorder does to you.

The guy I played in 'The Xpose' is more like a spoiled brat who likes to have his way than a villain. No more negative roles after 'The Xpose' for me. I've enough problems dealing with the negative image I've been saddled with in some sections.

If an offer comes my way, I would love to sing in every Indian language. It will be like an ode to my fans from every corner of the country.

Music industry is a very competitive field, and one has to continuously entertain and excite the audience, which is a difficult task.

I am not interested to sing in Bollywood. I sing for only those actors whom I admire. I sing free of cost for them. I want to take independent music ahead, and my songs are completely based on my observations.

When Punjabis all over the world admired my work, there was buzz in Bollywood as well.

I thought I was passionate about my work. Then I saw Shah Rukh bhai and Bachchan saab at work. Their spirit was so infectious. I felt I had so far been just fooling around.

I love my mother the most in the world. She has seen a lot of poverty and loneliness and is very simple. Whenever I am in trouble, I go far away from her, as she is not at all strong. If I see her breaking, I break.

My playground as a musician is growing.

Nobody can replace Mika Singh; he is an amazing artiste and a legend.

All my songs depict a slice of life and how youngsters perceive it. My song 'Blue Eyes' is exactly the kind of conversation a 21 or 22-year-old guy will have with the girl he likes.

I have fulfilled all my dreams in Bollywood. Now I have to find new dreams for Bollywood before I strike again.

I am overwhelmed for whatever I have achieved so far. I give the credit to my mother and everyone who has helped me.

Writing songs, making music, and singing is important to me, and I do all three.

I don't want to work more. I want to do limited but good work.

I am excited to partner with American Swan and to be able to connect with the youth and inspire them to chase their dreams and script their destinies.

I am either very expensive or free for my friends.

I compose for very limited people in Bollywood, as I am not a playback artist. I compose my songs and sing them.

I never wanted to be a performer, I never wanted to be Yo Yo Honey Singh, the rock star.

TV is the most powerful medium, which has taken me right into the homes of so many people.

I was looking online; many singers have sung songs for the elections, but I am not doing anything like that.

People are wrong when they say that there is struggle in Bollywood. That is only when you don't have the talent. If you have talent, Bollywood comes to you.

I am not anyone's brother, and I only have one younger sister. I don't consider my counterpart rappers as my brothers.

We celebrate Valentine Day, but no one remembers Bhagat Singh birth anniversary.

I was never seen with one girl in a video, right? My videos always had many girls.

Every revolutionary poet or lyricist has been criticised for something. If you come up with something new, there will always be people who will object to it.

I did one show in Chennai. There was this little kid, dressed up as I dressed in 'Blue Eyes.' That's fame for me.

Just as I have broken the monopoly of film music as being synonymous with popular music in our country, I want to prove that cricket is not the only glamorous sport.
