Parineeti Chopra Moved to Tears by Love for ‘Amar Singh Chamkila’ Vows to Stay


In an outpouring of emotional gratitude, actress Parineeti Chopra shares her heartfelt reactions to the warm reception of the biopic ‘Amar Singh Chamkila’, now captivating viewers on Netflix. The Diljit Dosanjh-led film, which debuted on the streaming service on April 12th, has become an instant success, spotlighting Parineeti’s transformative performance as Amarjot, the partner, and wife of the legendary Punjabi singer Amar Singh Chamkila.

Riding the waves of critical and fan adulations, Parineeti’s social media has been a haven of joy and tears. The actress enveloped in the comfort of her blanket, acknowledges this momentous comeback through her Instagram post. “Overwhelmed with your words, calls, and movie reviews. (tears are not stopping) ‘PARINEETI IS BACK.’ These words are ringing loud. Hadn’t thought of this. Yes, I am back, and not going anywhere!” she writes, encapsulating the whirlwind of emotions and career resurrection the film has incited.

‘Amar Singh Chamkila’ serves as a cinematic canvas, painting the life and times of the controversial and much-admired singer, with Parineeti’s portrayal being pivotal to the film’s narrative. Championing her role, she underwent a significant physical transformation, gaining around 10 to 15 kilograms, to mirror Amarjot’s appearance and essence truthfully.

Her journey was not without its craft and dedication. Acclaimed filmmaker Imtiaz Ali explained his vision for Parineeti’s transformation during a conversation with Lallantop at the trailer launch. Expressing his immediate confidence in her for the part, he fondly recalls how Parineeti was primed for a role where her singing talents could shine forth. Reflecting on her resemblance to Amarjot, Ali playfully suggested an indulgence in local delicacies like samosas, malai, and chaat to gain the necessary weight—a process which Parineeti embraced with determination.

Aside from adapting her physicality, Parineeti also dedicated herself to aural authenticity, spending six months in AR Rahman’s esteemed studio, elevating her vocal capabilities. She paired this with a regimen that allowed her to reach the film’s physical demands, sharing snippets of her workout sessions with her followers.

The film’s emotional and historical depths, amplified by Parineeti’s and Diljit’s nuanced performances, have struck a chord with its audience. The reviews are in, and the verdict is unambiguous—the biopic not only reacquaints viewers with a cherished cultural figure but also reintroduces them to the prowess of Parineeti Chopra, the actress.

Her rise in the aftermath of the film is not merely a testament to her skills as an actress but a reminder of the transformative power of cinema. It stands as proof that art, at its core, resonates across barriers, and that an earnest portrayal can reignite a star’s spark.

‘Amar Singh Chamkila’ continues to generate buzz and is another reminder of the prowess and potential of Indian cinema to explore diverse narratives, often bringing to the fore forgotten or lesser-known characters that resonate deeply with the Indian audience. Parineeti’s recent update not only serves as an acknowledgment of the film’s success but also a solemn promise – a promise that signifies her unwavering dedication to her craft and the assertion that she is here to stay, ready to take on roles that challenge and showcase the depths of her talent.
