Parineeti Chopra, who has been making headlines for her dreamy wedding with beau Raghav Chadha, is all set to feature in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Chamkila’, co-starring Diljit Dosanjh.
With the maestro AR Rahman helming the music for the film, the audience will once again get to witness the magic of a Rahman-Imtiaz collaboration. Adding to the excitement, both Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti have lent their voices to some of the songs. Now, sharing her journey, Parineeti took to her Instagram and posted a video of herself working out.
The actress wrote, “I spent 6 months last year singing in Rahman sir’s studio, and going back home to eat as much junk as I possibly could to put on 15 KILOS for Chamkila! (Coming soon on Netflix) Music and Food. That was my routine.
Now that the film is done, the story is the opposite. I miss the studio, and work in the gym trying to look like myself again. And not like Amarjot ji! Its been hard. But anything for you Imtiaz sir! And this role. Many more inches to go.”

Directed by Imtiaz Ali the film presents the untold true story of Punjab’s original rockstar of the masses, Amar Singh Chamkila who emerged from the shadows of poverty and rose to the heights of popularity in the 80s due to the sheer power of his music, angering many on the way, which finally led to his assassination at a young age of 27. The highest record-selling artist of his time, Chamkila is still regarded as one of the best live-stage performers that Punjab has ever produced.
