Kartik Aaryan to play Punjabi Singer Amar Singh Chamkila

There have been reports that director Imtiaz Ali would be producing a biopic on popular Punjabi folk singer Amar Singh Chamkila. Gossip is that he was considering both Ayushmann Khurrana and Kartik Aaryan for this. Keeping in mind Ayushmann’s singing background, it seemed to be the more obvious choice but it turns out Imtiaz has something different in mind.
If the rumors are true, then Kartik Aaryan has been pinned down as the leading male actor for this movie. It’s also been told that the actor was reached out to perform this role. This would be yet another collaboration for Imtiaz and Karthik. However, Imtiaz Ali won’t be directing this biopic, his brother Sajid Ali would. Imtiaz along with Reliance Entertainment is to be producing the film. Sajid Ali had made his debut into Bollywood with ‘Laila Majnu’ starring Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri.
Kartik and Imtiaz are working together for ‘Aaj Kaal’, along with Sara Ali Khan. Imtiaz seems to be impressed with Kartik's talent, enough to sign him for yet another project. However, if taken up personally, Kartik shares a fair share of similarities with the late singer. It seems like an interesting choice.
