Mumbai, June 8: Reacting to the reports that after a few drinks at a night club Yo Yo Honey Singh sang for free, the rapper said he did it at the behest of a friend.

“I went to that club for the party because it was my friend Imtiaz Khatri’s cousin’s birthday. At the party, she insisted that I sing a song for her birthday. So I did. But not after having bloody drinks, as reported,” said Honey Singh who is reportedly known as the most expensive singer.

“I’d sing for any friend’s happiness. I don’t have to get drunk to do so,” he added.

Honey Singh is getting ready to get into the boxing ring. Trained in mixed martial arts, he would soon be jumping into the ring for his Global Fighting Championship league that he has started.

He reiterates that he has given up drinking completely to prepare for the big fight in the ring.

“I used to be the occasional social drinker earlier. But now my intake of alcohol has ceased completely. I want to be fighting fit for the boxing ring,” said the singer, whose latest chartbuster from “Fugly” has the nation and its favourite deejay rocking.

He has not only sung “Yeh Fugly Fugly kya hai” for the film, but also penned and composed the song.

“When I did that song, I never expected it to be such a rage. I never do any song with any expectation. I guess having Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar in the song has given it that extra edge,” said the singer, who became a known name after giving hit song “Angreji Beat” in “Cocktail”.

Some of his other chartbusters are “Party all night” and “Lungi Dance”
