The youth icon rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh is awestruck with Amitabh Bachchan with whom he recently colloborated for a song. They shot a song together for the movie Bhoothnath returns and Yo Yo can't stop raving about Big B.

The rapper who turns 31 in March says, " It's like being in a room filled with kinetic energy, shooting with Big B made me feel so old and inadequate. Not even for a minute does he remind you of who he is. In fact, I felt I was with someone much younger than me". He feels Bachchan saheb was the coolest and youngest one on the sets. Everytime he came on the sets, the energy level went up by many notches and when he left the energy level dropped.

Shooting With Amitabh Made Me Feel Old: Honey Singh

The song they shot together was a promotional video for Big B's fothcoming release Bhoothnath Returns. The rapper, "Yo Yo" as he is fondly called is often known for his crass and bold lyrics. He made doubly sure that the words he used for Big B were not even remotely irreverent. He said. " I had to be very careful. It is okay to use casual trendy words for the younger stars, but , Big B is star of stars". He spent sleepless nights trying to be politically correct just for Amitabh Bachchan.

Although, he had a tough time choosing the right words for the song, he equally feels that it was not as if they decided to be prim and proper in the song. There is a great deal of masti in it too. Honey Singh had to exercise self-censorship for the first time as this film is targeted at children. The song was shot over two days and his gang organised a party on the sets at the end of the shooting.

Honey Singh further added, "We had this huge cake which said, Thankyou, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and partied hard at the end of the song. Amitabh Bachchan has spoilt me and he is addictive. Everyone who works with him wants to do so again. So, how am I an exception? Yes, I have plans of doing more music with Big B".

Will this song go up the charts like all his other hits? Lets wait for it !
