Amar Singh Chamkila, the artist who defined a generation in Punjabi music, is now getting his due respect. Amar Singh Chamkila, widely regarded as one of the most influential personalities in the music industry, gave the Punjabi industry a face that we now identify as ‘Folk music.’ It has now been announced that the iconic singer will be the subject of a Bollywood movie.
Imtiaz Ali, a well-known Bollywood filmmaker, recently paid a visit to Late Amar Singh Chamkila’s home and met his son, Jaiman Chamkila. The director spoke with Jaiman about the renowned singer’s life and that of his wife, Amanjot Kaur. Outside the home, Jaiman was seen with Imtiaz Ali. Have a look here-
Imtiaz Ali is a well-known Bollywood director who has helmed blockbusters such as Jab We Met, Highway, Tamasha, Love Aaj Kal, and others. Now, the filmmaker is preparing for his next project, a biography of Amar Singh Chamkila, a late Punjabi icon.
The most renowned pair in Punjabi music are Amar Singh Chamkila and Amarjot Kaur. On March 8, 1998, the artist-couple was murdered in an assassination attempt. Even though the artist and his wife were slain on that fateful day, their legacy lives on.
Chamkila was a maestro of the musical instrument ‘Tumbi,’ and spectators claim that his live performances remain unrivaled to this day. A movie about an artist with such aura and majesty is bound to be legendary. While the biopic has been announced, no information about the likely actors or the film’s premiere date has been released. We’re hoping for additional information about the film to be released shortly!
