Since Amar Singh Chamkila, the newest directorial marvel from Imtiaz Ali, was announced by Netflix India, the excitement is sky high. The film, starring Diljit Dosanjh in the titular role, is set for its Netflix premiere in April. Amar Singh Chamkila will unveil its trailer on March 28, 2024, ahead of its big release on the OTT platform. The media will be able to see the trailer, and Mumbai will host a grand event on the same day. Well, that's exciting news, indeed!

Unveiling a glimpse of Amar Singh Chamkila

Interestingly, the trailer will be dropped only 15 days ahead of the Netflix premiere of the film, which also stars Parineeti Chopra as Amarjot, Chamkila's wife and singing partner. The film, which is based on true events, will take viewers on a journey through the pulsating and rhythmic world of folk music in Punjab, all the way to the humble Akhadaas (village concerts), where Chamkila's voice once sounded thunderous.

Here's a glimpse of Amar Singh Chamkila:


The journey of Punjab's original rockstar

The film chronicles the unsung true story of Amar Singh Chamkila, the original rockstar of Punjab and the highest-selling musician of his day, often referred to as the "Elvis Presley of Punjab." Until now, audiences have had the opportunity to experience the enchantment of an AR Rahman-Imtiaz Ali-Irshad Kamil collaboration.

Diljit and Parineeti's vocal contributions to a few of the tunes are sure to get people pumped up! The actors' live performances in the Akhadaas will be the first time the film has ever featured on-location music recordings, capturing the authenticity and energy of the occasion.

Playing Amar Singh Chamkila was an incredibly difficult experience, but Diljit is overjoyed to be back on Netflix with another thrilling story. Collaborating with Parineeti and the rest of the team, who put in so much effort to make this lovely story a reality, has been an honour. Singing to Rahman's superb music was a peaceful experience; he hopes his renditions do him and his vision credit. The actor-singer appreciates Imtiaz's faith in him for this part.

Meanwhile, Parineeti expressed her gratitude to Imtiaz for the opportunity to portray Chamkila's singing partner and wife, Amarjot, in this remarkable film. Having Diljit as her screen partner has been a life-changing revelation. Singing is her life's passion, and she has always wanted to work with Rahman. Thanks to Netflix's worldwide reach, the actor has faith that their film will reach audiences all over the world and bring Chamkila's remarkable story to life for viewers everywhere.
