Honey Singh, in a recent interaction wih Hindustan Times opened up on his Holi celebrations in Delhi and how they used to get ‘really filthy’. The singer said, “I have loved Holi since childhood, when it used to be all wet and wild. We used to start at 7am and will go on till 6pm, and it’d be really filthy with grease, dark colours, eggs and water balloons. But now it’s mostly with gulaal, though I miss that fun a lot.” The singer also confessed that he has “never tried bhang” and eating “gujiya and dahi bhalle” was his favourite part of the day.
The producer-singer also said that for the last decade or so he has been celebrating Holi in Dubai and avoids ‘flashy Bollywood parties’. He added, “For almost 10 years now, I’ve been celebrating Holi and performing in Dubai. Wahan Holi ka mazaa hi kuch alag hai. It’s a very multiracial place, where people across caste, religion and cultures come together and play Holi. It’s very organised there in the sense that they hire water parks, where 10,000-15,000 people gather and play Holi while we perform.”
The singer finally had a word of advice for people celebrating. “Tareeke se khelo. Saari duniya, ek ghar-parivaar hai, so don’t cross the line. Nashe se door raho, Holi ko maze mein enjoy karke, khushi se manao.”
