Chamkila – Kunal Kapoor Film

"Chamkila - Kunal Kapoor"Film : Chamkila
Director : Navdeep Singh (Manorama Six Feet Under fame)
Producer : Nilesh Dadich
Starring : Kunal Kapoor (as Chamkila)
Music Composer : Amit Trivedi ( Dev-D fame)
Singers : Kunal Kapoor, Major Khan ( an upcoming singer from Punjab) , a Rajasthani folk group and a Punjabi band.
Scriptwriter : Kunal Kapoor

This film is based on popular punjabi singer Late.Amar Singh Chamkila who was assassinated in 1988. Kunal Kapoor is not only acting and singing for CHAMKILA but he is the one who came out with the whole concept of the film and wrote its script. Kunal Kapoor is presently attending music classes to train his voice so that he can act as well as sing for his upcoming film CHAMKILA. Kunal Kapoor came to know about Amar Singh Chamkila (A popular musician in Punjab in the 1980s) while he was shooting for a film on the outskirts of Punjab. It was here when he heard someone talking about Chamkila while listening to his song “Pehla Kam”.
The particular voice texture and the kind of music and songs by Chamkila made the actor curious and so he decided to find out more about the singer. Later he and his director friend Navdeep Singh decided to go on with this project which will be produced by Nilesh Dadich.

Being a film based on the life of a musician the music of the film will play a big role. So keeping this in mind Amit Trivedi of Dev-D fame has been given the responsibility for composing the music of the film CHAMKILA. Amit Trivedi repotedly visited many locations in Punjab to look for the right kind of voice needed for the film. Auditions were held in Chandigarh, Amritsar, Ludhiana and Jalandhar where some very talented singers with raw voices were shortlisted.

But in the end a new singer Major Khan whose voice seemed to fit the role, a Rajasthani folk group and a Punjabi band were selected who are now being recorded in Mumbai. The music director is working hard on Kunal’s singing skills as well because he wants to record a few songs in Kunal’s voice also so that justice can be done to Kunal’s role.
