Imtiaz Ali reveals why he chose to release Diljit Dosanjh-starrer Amar Singh Chamkila on OTT: ‘I don’t suppose…’


Starring Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Kaur, Imtiaz Ali-directed Amar Singh Chamkila will begin streaming on Netflix from April 12.

Imtiaz Ali is awaiting the release of his upcoming movie Amar Singh Chamkila, primarily based on the lifetime of the late revolutionary Punjabi singer. Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra painting Chamkila and his spouse, singing associate Amarjot Kaur, who have been assassinated in 1988. The movie’s trailer and soundtrack have been launched this week and each have met with extraordinarily constructive response.

Amar Singh Chamkila is the primary Imtiaz Ali movie that’s being instantly launched on an OTT because the musical begins streaming on Netflix from April 12. In a current interview, the filmmaker revealed why he opted for a direct-to-digital release for the movie and why he wished to make it in Hindi language, as a substitute of Chamkila’s mom toungue Punjabi.

Speaking to Pinkvilla, Imtiaz mentioned, “I believe that I am like a big cinema watcher, like a theater viewer and a director. When I close my eyes and think about a film, I always imagine myself on the big screen in a theatre and watching the big screen. I can’t help it, but I don’t think that will be a bad thing for a film I made for an OTT.”

“So, it’s a new thing and I feel that there is a certain reach and the point of making Chamkila for me, I am a Hindi film director but making Chamkila in Hindi I thought was necessary because Chamkila is a very big subject and I think it’s a universal subject. So, I wanted people that are not from Punjab should also see it and enjoy it. People perhaps that are not from this country and don’t even speak these native languages should be able to enjoy it”, he additional added.

Imtiaz Ali has beforehand made critically and commercially acclaimed movies equivalent to Rockstar, Love Aaj Kal, Jab We Met, Tamasha, and Highway. After his final two releases Jab Harry Met Sejal and Love Aaj Kal haven’t been profitable, he is trying to make his comeback with Amar Singh Chamkila.
