Mumbai, 26 February 2024: Imtiaz Ali’s latest directorial spectacle, ‘Amar Singh Chamkila’ is premiering on April 12, Netflix. The biopic charts the untold true story of Punjab’s original rockstar (Amat Singh Chamlika) of the masses, the highest record-selling artist of his time.

Amar Singh Chamkila (Real neme Dhanni Ram) , often referred to as the “Elvis Presley of Punjab”, was assassinated with his wife (Amarjot) on 8 March, 1988 and the murders remain unsolved. 

Shot in real locations, the film promises to transport the audiences to the vibrant and rhythmic world of Punjab’s folk music, right to the rustic Akhadaas (live music performances in villages) where Chamkila’s voice would once roar. The film also stars Parineeti Chopra as Amarjot , Chamkila’s wife and singing partner.

With the maestro AR Rahman helming the music for the film and Irshad Kamil penning the lyrics, the audience will once again get to witness the magic of a Rahman – Imtiaz – Irshad collaboration. Adding to the excitement, both Diljit and Parineeti have lent their voices to some of the songs. For the first time, the film will showcase live music recordings done on locations capturing the rawness and the exuberance of each moment as Diljit & Parineeti sing live in the Akhadaas.

The film is produced by Mohit Choudhary, Select Media Holdings LLP, Saregama, and Window Seat Films. The music of the film is on Saregama.

Watch Amar Singh Chamkila, premiering April 12, exclusively on Netflix.
