But while the filmmaker and the streaming giant revealed the release date, that was not the only surprise they had for the fans of Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra.

However, what stands out in this Instagram story is how the polaroid is placed. The picture is placed on an open diary that has something scribbled on it. It possibly is lyrics for some song or dialogues. While it is unclear, it still makes for a very beautiful shot. Talking of the release date announcement, the makers did it with a motion poster that features Diljit Dosanjh as Amar Singh Chamkila. The movie is set to release on Netflix globally on April 12, 2024. In the caption, the streaming giant wrote, “Maahaul ban jaata tha jab vo chedta tha saaz, kuch aisa hi tha Chamkila Andaaz.
