Musician Amar Singh Chamkila, who was widely known for his mind-blowing Punjabi songs, is still famous for his vivid language, high-pitched vocals, and novel compositions accompanied with masterful Tumbi. Chamkila and his second wife Amarjot Kaur were brutally killed, along with two members of their band, in March 1988 and the case still remains unresolved.

Hence, to portray Chamkila’s life on screen, director Imtiaz Ali joined hands with Netflix and made a biopic titled, Amar Singh Chamkila. Fans of the musician will soon be able to watch the film on April 12, 2024, only on Netflix. But before that, here we have some secrets about Diljit Dosanjh, who portrayed the titular role of Amar Singh Chamkila. Dosanjh is also a famous Punjabi singer. However, nowadays, his aura and talent are not limited to Punjabi industry. He's making heads turn in Bollywood as well.


Diljit Dosanjh's secret

Other than this, Diljit jokingly revealed that he used to hide eating high-calorie foods such as paneer, butter, etc., from his gym trainer and crew.
