Chamkila Song Ishq Mitaye: Parineeti Chopra And Diljit Dosanjh Shine As 80s Singing Sensations

While the buzz surrounding Imtiaz Ali’s big Netflix directorial Chamkila is sky high, its makers dropped the film’s first song Ishq Mitaye on Thursday. Premiering April 12 on Netflix, Chamkila follows the untold true story of Punjab’s singing sensation, the highest record-selling artist of his time, Amar Singh Chamkila. The song Ishq Mitaye, a blend of traditional and modern beats, tries to encapsulate the rise of the Chamkila and his singing partner, later wife Amarjot Kaur. The song shows the two performing in the open, in small gatherings or on stage and earning accolades from the onlookers while doing so. The track sung by Mohit Chauhan and composed by AR Rahman is, in its true sense, music to the ears and makes the wait for the release of the film too hard.

The song was shared by the film’s lead pair Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra on their respectve Instagram feeds. The caption alongside the post read, “Mere agge duniya ka rang saara fikka, Apne lahu se hi lagaaya maine tikka..main hoon panjab.”
