Diljit Dosanjh faces backlash for no-turban look in new movie, Chamkila, directed by Imtiaz Ali

Diljit Dosanjh has revealed a new look for the upcoming film Chamkila.

The teaser, released on May 30, shows Dosanjh without his turban.

This has sparked mixed reactions from fans, with some praising his dedication to the role and others criticizing him for disrespecting his Sikh faith.

Dosanjh is set to play the iconic Punjabi folk singer Amar Singh Chamkila.

The film, directed by Imtiaz Ali, also stars Parineeti Chopra as Amarjot Kaur, Chamkila's wife and singing partner.

It remains to be seen how fans will react to Dosanjh's portrayal of Chamkila when the film is released.

This is not the first time Diljit Dosanjh has flaunted a no-turban look. In the 2022 Hindi period drama Jogi, Dosanjh had a no-turban look in some parts of the movie.

In Jogi, the character decides to do away with his turban and cut his hair in order to hide his identity and save fellow Sikh victims.
