"It was inevitable that the actors had to be the singers. So, if Diljit wasn't in the film, then I don't know whether the film could be made. He's an authentic singer from Punjab who understands life, the cultural context and the linguistics of Chamkila better than anybody. It has been an interesting journey with him on this film."  expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Amar Singh Chamkila is the first biopic that Ali has directed. He said making a film that is backed by facts was an interesting process.  "It's a different movie than what I’ve done before. Since it's a biopic, I rely on facts to create scenes for a film rather than imagination.
