Imtiaz Ali-directed film “Chamkila,” Diljit Dosanjh plays the role of Amar Singh Chamkila, singer who was murdered at the age of 27
The life and demise of well-known singer Amar Singh Chamkila, whose music enchanted Punjab, are explored in depth in Imtiaz Ali’s Chamkila, starring Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra.
Amar Singh Chamkila assassinated at 27
Imtiaz Ali’s subsequent film will bring to mind another young singer, Amar Singh Chamkila, who was murdered at 27, one day after the passing anniversary of Sidhu Moose Wala. Amar Singh Chamkila, the first rock star from Punjab, will be brought to life in the Netflix original Chamkila, starring Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti. After emerging from poverty, he achieved fame in the 1980s before being shot and killed just moments before his performance in Mehsampur, Punjab.
First, look at the teaser of “Chamkila”
On Tuesday, a teaser for the upcoming movie was released. It began with a crowd gathered right in front of a podium as an announcer addressed the performer. He is referred to as the “greatest singer of his time” and called “Jawan dilon ki muskaan, aur buzurgo ki shaan” (The Grin of Youth and the Esteem of Seniors). Diljit entered holding an ektara and greeted the audience, who applauded him. Without his turban, he appeared different. The music for the movie was composed by maestro AR Rahman, with Parineeti and Diljit also contributing their vocal talents.
Imtiaz Ali’s statement
In a statement about his movie, Imtiaz said, “It’s been an unforgettable experience for me.” “Considering that this movie includes some live singing, there are no better actors to play the roles of Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra. The movie chronicles the wild success of Chamkila’s audacious songs that the community could neither neglect nor accept.”
Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh talked about the movie
Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh added that portraying Amar Singh Chamkila had been one of his life’s most difficult experiences. It’s been a pleasure working with Parineeti and the team who put in the effort to make this lovely story come to life. Being able to sing Rahman sir’s outstanding compositions was a contemplative experience, and I hope I was capable to live up to his perception. I thank Imtiaz Bhajee’s confidence in me for this duty,” he continued.
Parineeti Chopra’s remarks
For her part, Parineeti chooses Chamkila over Ranbir Kapoor and Sandeep Reddy’s Animal. She stated, “It is a privilege to play Amarjot, Chamkila’s singing partner and wife in this incredible film, and I am thankful to Imtiaz sir for having this chance. It has been incredibly enlightening to share the screen with Diljit. Being able to work with the celebrated AR Rahman has long been a dream of mine because singing is my passion.
Diljit Dosanjh also had a role in the movie Jodi, which centered on the romantic tale of Amar Singh and Amarjot Kaur before Imtiaz Ali’s Chamkila. It received a favorable reception after its early-month release. Mehsampur, a mockumentary based on Chamkila’s life, was also produced by filmmaker Kabir Singh Chowdhry in 2018.
