Imtiaz on Amarjot and Gurmail’s families

Imtiaz said, "Amarjot and Gurmail’s families were there and were trying to take pictures with me separately. But I told them ki ek picture saath mein lo (take one picture together). Jaiman calls Gurmail mummy ji. Things happen in life but if they all can stick together, it’s always good. After she (Gurmail) saw the film with her daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren, she told me that she loved it. She hugged me and cried. We all got emotional. Her feedback at that point was really positive.”

Imtiaz talks about Chamkila’s another child with 1st wife

Imtiaz added, "There’s so much that happened in Chamkila’s life that’s so interesting and also contributes to the scope of the story. There’s so much more that happened between them. So, I had a really tough time condensing everything and still not lose the entertaining and relevant themes. He (Amar) had another child with Gurmail after having a child with Amarjot. The circumstance of that has been explained to me by Chamkila’s sister. I’ve it on record and I had written a scene about it also but had to cut it down because it was somehow a bit less relevant than the ones that were already there.”
