Amar Singh Chamkila is considered as one of the biggest names in the history of Punjabi music. At a time when not everyone was aware of Punjabi folk music, it was Chamkila, whose music created a stir across the nation. Unfortunately, he was assassinated at the age of 27 by a group of unidentified killers when he was at the peak of his stardom and success. Even after all these years, nothing is known about the killers other than the fact that they were against the themes of his music.

Imtiaz Ali's film, Amar Singh Chamkila features Diljit Dosanjh as 'Elvis Presley of Punjab'

The critically acclaimed filmmaker, Imtiaz Ali, who has made a series of blockbuster films over the years, took the responsibility of introducing the slain Punjabi singer to the current and next generation. The director signed Diljit Dosanjh to play the character of 'Amar Singh Chamkila' and Parineeti Chopra to play 'Amarjot Kaur', who is Chamkila's second wife. While AR Rahman composed the film's soundtrack, lyrics are penned by Irshad Kamil, and the song, 'Ishq Mitaye' sung by Mohit Chauhan is already a hit.

The buzz around Amar Singh Chamkila's biographical drama is huge as not many people are aware of his life story, which is nothing less than a movie. However, as per multiple reports, Imtiaz Ali's film isn't going to feature the iconic Punjabi singer's first wife, Gurmail Kaur. There's no mention of her name in the cast list on multiple platforms like IMDb, Bollywood Hungama, IndiaTimes, and more.

Well, it's quite obvious as Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra are the leads of the film, which clearly proves that the biographical drama is solely based on the lives of Amar Singh Chamkila and his second wife, Amarjot Kaur. However, in an interview with The Times Of India, Chamkila's daughter, Amandeep Kaur admitted that she is excited to see her father's biopic, as she and her sister, Kamaldeep Kaur are also shown in Imtiaz Ali's film.

Most of the people are aware of the fact that the iconic Punjabi singer, Amar Singh Chamkila was married to Amarjot Kaur. The couple was also blessed with a son named Jaiman Chamkila. As per reports, Amarjot was pregnant when she and her husband, Amar Singh Chamkila were shot dead by a group of assailants. It was before their performance in Punjab's Mehsampur on March 8, 1988, when they were gunned down by unidentified killers.

According to a report in The Statesman, Amar Singh Chamkila's first marriage was with Gurmail Kaur, and together they welcomed two daughters named, Amandeep Kaur and Kamaldeep Kaur.
