Honey Singh Had Sme Amazing Chaat With Us
When we first met Honey Singh in Andheri, we decided to bring down the myth that people from Delhi don’t enjoy culinary delights in Mumbai. We took him to Chandru’s Pure Ghee Sweets, which was recognised with a prize for serving Mumbai’s best chaat. While we savoured some Mumbaiya chaat, we spoke with Honey Singh about the start of his singing career.
We started the food trail with him over some delicious pani puri and he simply loved it on the first bite itself. While enjoying the burst of flavours, he shared the story of his musical journey with us. To say the least, it was quite enlightening. Now that we knew he loved the chaat in Mumbai, it was time to take it up a notch with sev puri. This was his first time trying it, and he loved it.

Next, we wanted to know about his education as well as the beginning of his career. Like most of us, Honey Singh barely got through 11th and 12th grade but ended up pursuing a B.Sc. in IT. It was in 2003 that he started making beats for different artists. He worked as a music director for the first time in 2005 for the iconic ‘Khadke Glassy Tere Naa Te’. We all know how big a hit it was.
Further in the episode, he shared more details about why he chose to do a B.Sc. and shed more light on his journey. Watch the full episode to see how it went.
