At the trailer launch event of the film a few days ago, Parineeti Chopra spoke about how she bagged the role in the film. “I remember a Zoom call with Rehman sir, Imtiaz sir and Diljit. I thought it was just an introduction but then Rehman sir asked me, ‘Do you know the song?’ I replied ‘I like to sing’ and then he said ‘Okay sing and show.’ “I sang ‘Dama Dum Mast Kalandar’ and whatever Punjabi song I could. That’s how he auditioned me,” PTI quoted him as saying.

Reflecting on the journey of shooting Chamkila, Parineeti said at the event, “Shooting Chamkila was like meditation. It was full of music yet it was the calmest, most disciplined, beautiful and harmonious set… At the end of the day, I felt fulfilled. It felt like coming back from a gurudwara. . I think I have done something good in my life that sir gave me this film.”
