"I was a student in front of Diljit. I used to check my diction with Diljit. (That) I am pronouncing the word correctly or not, or how should I do it? The biggest challenge for us was that we should not sing like us. We had to try to sing like Amarjot and Chamkila," she added.

When Dijit Dosanjh was offered Chamkila

The Punjabi singer shared a funny incident when Imtiaz Ali offered him Amar Singh Chamkila. Singer-actor revealed when he learned about Bollywood's plans for Chamkila, he questioned their approach, thinking, "We will make it," leading to the creation of the fictional film Jodi due to rights issues. However, when the pandemic hit, Jodi couldn't be released and then he got a call from Imtiaz. Anticipating legal repercussions over rights, Diljit was surprised when the director offered him the film. "I thought he would sue us, but he wanted to cast me," the actor added.
