It may have come as a surprise to his fans all over the world, but rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has not only confirmed that he has a wife but also admitted that he takes her opinion very seriously. On the sets of reality show India’s Raw Star, where the famous rapper is not only mentoring contestants but also judging them, Honey refused to go ahead with the shoot due to the stress and the nervousness he was dealing with given that his new album Desi Kalakaar was releasing in a day. So to beat the blues, Honey insisted his wife, Shalini, be called to the studio to salvage his low spirits. In came the missus, who took the stressed-out rapper back stage and gave him a much needed pep talk. After a four hour delay, the shoot for the show finally resumed. Honey, who has so far been very discreet about his personal life and even denied being married a while ago, said that his wife holds a very special place in his life and that her opinion matters to him the most.
While he was at it, Honey also assured his fans and his producers that he will take the show seriously and will focus on it more whole-heartedly. And after peace was restored in paradise, the rapper and his wife danced on stage.
