Since the film has started to get penned down, the makers are looking for the perfect fit for the character. Amar Singh Chamkila was known for his vibrancy and charisma. Often regarded as the Elvis of India, Amar Singh's biopic will reportedly be as vibrant as the singer's life. For the titular role, makers of the film have reportedly shortlisted Ayushmann Khurrana and Kartik Aaryan. It has become difficult to decide which actor will lead the film as both the actors are right now at their career peaks. It is expected that Imtiaz Ali starts working on the Amar Singh Chamkila biopic as soon as Aaj Kal hits the screens on Valentine's day 2020.
