Director Imtiaz Ali reveals why he cast Diljit Dosanjh in Netflix’s Amar Singh Chamkila

In a recent interview with News18 Showsha, Imtiaz Ali shed light on the important decision to cast actors who are good at acting and possess the gift of song. He emphasized, “It was mandatory for me to cast actors who are singers as well. It was important for them to sing live. This film wouldn’t have been possible without them.” This revelation provides a unique insight into the directors’ vision for authenticity in portraying the life and music of Amar Singh Chamkila.

Additionally, Imtiaz’s insistence on live singing during the shooting is an unconventional approach, given the prevalence of using recorded versions. However, he justified this choice by stating, “The way Parineeti and Diljit sang live was a hundred times superior to what they recorded in a studio. Live singing has a magic of its own and we managed to capture it. What we recorded was a back-up. The songs sung by them in the film has happened live on location like dialogue-speaking. There were no add-ons whatsoever.”

Moreover, Amar Singh Chamkila’s director praised Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra for their unwavering commitment to the project. After all, he also expressed his confidence that nobody else could have played Chamkila with the authenticity and dedication that Diljit brought to the role.

Amar Singh Chamkila will be streaming on Netflix on April 12, 2024.
