Honey Singh says:
I can sing in English and Hindi, both. I don’t need an international artist with me to get me a Grammy award. I will fetch the award in my own language. But you can ask any international artist if they want to work with me because I can sing in English too but they can’t sing in Hindi and Punjabi. So if an international artist collaborates with me, he will only be lucky as he will get additional billion fans from India too.
