He says he needs to take a break from Bollywood after working with Big B.
"I need to now focus on other things before I carry on in Bollywood. I can't be doing what I've done in 'Lungi dance' and now the song 'Party with bhootnath' with Bachchan saab over and over again. I've to reinvent myself for Bollywood," he said.
Honey Singh's proposed music video with the Big B featuring a team specially flown in from Canada, has been postponed by a fortnight.
The singer sees this as an opportunity to polish up his act.
"It isn't every day that someone like me gets to work with Bachchan saab. There is a lot of work to be done from now till the shooting of the song," he said.
Honey Singh has flown in the director Giftie and the choreographer Big Dance of his international hit song "Blue Eyes" for Big B's music video.
"My team and I have been working on the song with Bachchan saab. Believe me, Bachchan saab is the youngest member of our band...I am having the time of my life," said the performer, who believes that working with Big B and SRK has been a life changing experience.
"I thought I was passionate about my work. Then I saw Shah Rukh bhai and Bachchan saab at work. Their spirit was so infectious.I felt I had so far been just fooling around. It's time for some serious work now," he said.
"I have fulfilled all my dreams in Bollywood. Now I have to find new dreams for Bollywood before I strike again," he added.
