Diljit Dosanjh Opens Up About Filming Amar Singh Chamkila's Death Scene in Imtiaz Ali's Biopic

Renowned Punjabi actor and singer Diljit Dosanjh provided his insights into the emotional journey of portraying the iconic Punjabi folk singer Amar Singh Chamkila in an upcoming biographical drama helmed by acclaimed director Imtiaz Ali. From creating history at Coachella 2023 to his relationship with his family, Diljit Dosanjh shares his inside life details in an interview with Ranveer Ahlabadia commonly known as BeerBiceps. 

Diljit Dosanjh about Chamkila Biopic

A short clip shared by Ranveer on social media unveiled Diljit's reflections on filming the pivotal death scene of Amar Singh Chamkila. Diljit revealed that during the shooting, he could sense Chamkila's energy permeating the set. "Hundred per cent, I could feel it," he affirmed. Recounting the experience of filming Chamkila's assassination, Diljit shared, "Humne wahi shoot kiya jaha Chamkile ko mara gaya tha" (We shot at the same spot where Chamkila was killed).

The intensity of the scene became palpable for Diljit as he fell on the exact spot where Chamkila had collapsed after being shot, clutching a tumbi in his hand. In a moment of eerie coincidence, one of the tumbi strings grazed his fingers, drawing blood. This visceral experience led Diljit to realize that he was standing on the very ground where Chamkila's life had been tragically extinguished.

Diljit Dosanjh about his Family Relations

Beyond the realm of cinematic portrayal, Diljit Dosanjh also delved into his personal history during a recent interview, where he reminisced about his childhood and the sacrifices his family made. He recounted how, at a tender age, his parents sent him away to Ludhiana to live with his maternal uncle, severing the familial bonds that were central to his upbringing. "I lost connection," he confessed, reflecting on the profound impact of physical distance on his emotional ties. Diljit fondly recalled his fondness for festivals like Diwali and Holi, which were overshadowed by the solitude of his life in Ludhiana, devoid of familial warmth and modern amenities.

At the age of 11, Diljit experienced a poignant rupture in his relationship with his family. Despite the distance, he harbors immense respect for his mother and cherishes the tacit support of his father, who entrusted him with the autonomy to navigate his own path in life. "You will get a house to live in and food to eat. Rest, it is your life," Diljit fondly recollected his father's words, emblematic of a parent's unconditional love and trust.

The much-anticipated biopic, titled "Amar Singh Chamkila," promises to be a poignant tribute to the legendary Punjabi singer, with Parineeti Chopra essaying the role of Amarjot, Chamkila's wife and singing partner. A.R. Rahman's evocative musical compositions are poised to enhance the narrative, amplifying the emotional resonance of Chamkila's remarkable journey. Scheduled for its premiere on Netflix on April 12, the film is poised to captivate audiences with its portrayal of passion, tragedy, and the enduring legacy of a musical icon.
