<p>The film, which will be available on Netflix on April 12, explores the life of the legendary vocalist Amar Singh Chamkila, who was sadly killed at the young age of 27. Alongside Parineeti Chopra, Diljit plays a crucial part in the movie. He acknowledged that at first, he had doubts about how Bollywood would handle the delicate subject matter.</p>
<p>When asked about his concerns, Diljit came clean and said, “I had my doubts when I first heard about Bollywood taking on the Chamkila story.” I even tried working on a project named Jodi that was similar, but it was never finished because of rights difficulties. Naturally, I wondered whether they could really do it justice.</p>
<p>But during the pandemic-induced pause, destiny took a surprising turn when Imtiaz Ali approached Diljit with a compelling idea. “When Imtiaz sir approached me, I was shocked. Diljit laughed as she said, “At first, I was afraid of legal consequences, but to my amazement, he gave me a place in his project.</p>
<p>Imtiaz’s distinct concept for the biography was eventually what convinced Diljit to change his mind. Imtiaz Sir’s viewpoint was a welcome departure from the norm. He clarified details of Chamkila’s life that I was unaware of as well. Chamkila was a multifaceted artist who was not only a vocalist but also a composer and performer. With pride in his eyes, Diljit said, “Knowing this made me realize the significance of bringing his story to the big screen.”</p>
<p>Diljit’s misgivings eventually gave way to respect and appreciation for Imtiaz’s steadfast dedication to upholding Chamkila’s tradition. “Imtiaz sir has an infectious enthusiasm and commitment to our endeavor. With a tone laced with enthusiasm for viewers to see the enchantment of Chamkila’s narrative develop onscreen, Diljit ended, saying, “I am honored to be part of a film that pays homage to a cultural icon like Amar Singh Chamkila.”</p>
