This man who calls himself ‘Yo’, whose real name is Sachin Pathak, has worked with Honey for the Marathi lyrics for the song Aata Majhi Satakli and has met Honey for that once or twice. He has not met Honey after that.
He neither knows Honey nor is a part of the group. Such baseless stories hurt him and us, as his family. Honey and I last went to Chandigarh in August for a religious visit.”
