The film will transport the audiences to the vibrant and rhythmic world of Punjab’s folk music, right to the rustic Akhadaas (live music performances in villages) where Chamkila’s voice would once roar, the streamer said in a press release.

Maestro AR Rahman has scored the music while the lyrics are penned by Irshad Kamil.

Both Dosanjh and Chopra have lent their voices to some of the songs for the film, which will showcase live music recordings done on locations for instance in the Akhadaas, the release said.

Amar Singh Chamkila is produced by Mohit Choudhary, Select Media Holdings LLP, Saregama, and Window Seat Films.

Regarded as one of the best live stage performers to have come from Punjab, Chamkila and his wife Amarjot were killed in 1988.
