‘Amar Singh Chamkila’ trailer is out

Here’s everything you need to know about “Amar Singh Chamkila”.

Plot

In Ali’s film, Chamkila—dubbed the “Elvis Presley of Punjab”—rises to fame and struggles with cynicism, idolatry, and notoriety. From a menial mill worker, he ascends to become the popular voice of Punjab and the state’s best-selling music artist. His followers exclaim, “Other artists are great, but you’re our own.”

Renowned for his candid and sensual songs, Chamkila was a highly sought-after singer-songwriter and live performer who was killed in 1988 in Mehsampur, Punjab, along with Amarjot by unidentified shooters. His 27-year-old death has continued to be a source of intense intrigue and conjecture in Punjab. It was claimed—but not proven—that Sikh separatists were responsible for his death.
