Who is 'shiny'?

'Chamkila' is a biopic of controversial Punjabi folk singer Amar Singh Chamkila. Amar Singh Chamkila is a well-known name for his Punjabi folk songs and excellent stage performances. Amar Singh was born on 21 July 1960 in Ludhiana. He was fond of music, so within a few years he learned to play harmonium and dholki.

At the age of 18, he met Surendra Shinda, Surendra came to know about Amar Singh's musical talent and both of them worked together. Amar Singh also added 'Chamkila' before his name. He used to write his own songs. He also had his own band consisting of two people and his wife Amarjot Singh. He achieved global fame with his superhit songs like Lalkare Naal, Baba Tera Nankana, Talwar Mein Kalgidhar Di.

In 1988, when Chamkila was going to perform in Mehsampur, Punjab, he was shot dead. Along with Chamkina, his wife was also murdered. At that time Chamkila was only 27 years old. He ruled the hearts of Punjabi youth in the 80s. His murder was a big scam. Was this the work of Khalistanis, who considered his songs 'dirty'? Or the punishment for marrying a girl from a so-called upper caste? Or was he a victim of competition in the Punjabi music industry? The truth as to why Chamkila was murdered at the age of just 27 was never revealed.
