The makers of Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra-starrer biopic Amar Singh Chamkila on Monday announced that the Imtiaz Ali directorial movie will be released on April 12. It will be a digital-only release and will land on streaming giant Netflix.

Amar Singh Chamkila's music was heavily influenced by the Punjabi village life, and his songs revolved around extra-marital relationships, coming of age, drinking, drug use, and the hot tempers of Punjabi men.

The makers took to social media and shared a motion poster announcing the date of the movie.

In the snippet, Diljit, who plays the titular character, is saying, "Ek baat to pata hai mujhe ki log kya sunna chahte hain, unhe kis chiz me maja ata hai. Wo mai kar sakta hun."

See the post shared by Netflix:

"Maahaul bann jata tha jab vo chedta tha saaz, kuch aise hi tha Chamkila ka andaaz. @imtiazaliofficial's #AmarSinghChamkila arriving on April 12, only on Netflix.", the streaming giant wrote in the caption.
