The latest we hear that Kartik Aaryan is about to sign yet another interesting project and that too with Imtiaz Ali. According to reports, the rising star of Bollywood has been approached to play the role of distinguished Punjabi singer Amar Singh Chamkila in his biopic. If Aaryan agrees to come onboard, it will be the first biopic of his filmography.

“Kartik Aaryan has been reportedly approached to play the role of popular Punjabi singer late Amar Singh Chamkila. This would be another collaboration between Kartik and Imtiaz. But the filmmaker won’t direct it. The film will be produced by Imtiaz Ali and Reliance Entertainment and directed by Imtiaz’s brother Sajid Ali who made his directorial debut last year with Avinash Tiwary’s Laila Majnu.”

For the uninitiated, Amar Singh Chamkila was a composer, musician and lyricist from Punjab. He became one of the most revered Punjabi performers and belted out a number of successful Punjabi songs. But, in the most tragic turn of events, Chamkila and his wife were assassinated along with the two members of his band on 8 March 1988. The case remains unsolved till date.

An official announcement regarding the biopic is awaited.
