They all attended the 'Next on Netflix' event at the Mehboob Studio in Mumbai on Thursday. Parineeti told event host Zakir Khan, “Even though I’m a Punjabi and can speak decent Punjabi, having been born in Ambala, I felt like a student in front of Diljit. It’s a treat to listen to him speak and sing in Punjabi. He brings out those small nuances, and you can assess the scope of improvement in your dialogue delivery or singing in Punjabi."

The film is based on legendary Indian singer and musician Amar Singh Chamkila. Chamkila and his wife Amarjot were killed, along with two members of their band, on March 8, 1988, in a case that remains unsolved. Amar Singh Chamkila is set to drop on Netflix soon.
