Diljit Dosanjh talks about his upcoming film Chamkila: I just surrendered to vision of Imtiaz Ali

Be it music or acting, Diljit Dosanjh never fails to impress the audience.  

In a recent Netflix event, the actor opened up about his upcoming film Chamkila. He also shared his initial thoughts about the making of a biopic. 

Diljit said, 
thought I knew a lot about Chamkila, before I met Imtiaz sir. Humein jab pata chala ki Bollywood mein film bann rahi hai Chamkila, toh humein laga ki ye kya banayenge? Hum banayenge , humne Jodi film banayi hai, jiske
humein rights nahi mile toh hume fiction bana di.  I
thought they wouldn't be able to make it. So
when the pandemic hit, Jodi could not be
released and that is when I got a call from
Imtiaz Ali sir. I thought he was going to sue us.
But he said he wanted to cast me in his film."

He further added, "But when I heard his perspective, it was totally different. It was Chamkila's story, and
that story, even I didn't know that well. Amar
Singh Chamkila wrote his own music, played it
on his own and even performed it on stage. So
the fact that such a big film was going to be made on Chamkila was a matter of great pride for me and my people. I just surrendered to the vision of Imtiaz Ali sir"

Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Chamkila is set to release will also feature Parineeti Chopra.
