Most of us who have heard Ishq Mitaye by the late Amar Singh Chamkila know it as a classic. But now AR Rahman and Mohit Chauhan have added their own twist to the song as a teaser for Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming biopic, Amar Singh Chamkila. The newer version has a modern and traditional approach that somehow brings out the essence of the original while maintaining a different vibe. 

AR Rahman took to X to post a snippet of the song where he wrote, “Mere agge duniya ka rang saara fikka, Apne lahu se hi lagaaya maine tikka..MAIN HOON PANJAB!”

The movie, which is scheduled to drop on April 12, on Netflix, features Diljit Dosanjh, Parineeti Chopra in the lead and dives into the untold story of the late Punjabi singer.
