Punjabi singer Gippy Grewal opened up about the death threats Punjabi singers are going through. From Amar Singh Chamkila to Sidhu MooseWala, the young Punjabi singers often were the target of criminal gangs which led to their untimely deaths. Following the release of Imtiaz Ali’s musical biopic on the life of the Punjabi musician Amar Singh Chamkila whose untimely demise shocked the whole industry led to the discussion regarding the topic. In an interview with India.com, the singer-actor shared his take on the vulnerability and stress the artist faces for their fame. Let’s dig into the entire details of this story.

Gippy Grewal said he is not scared of death 

The singer-actor told the outlet about the constant threat of the gangs, “Dar bilkul nahin lagta (I am not scared). Every profession has pluses and minuses. You can meet with an accident or anything can happen to anyone in any field.”

The 41-year-old had also earlier received extortion threats from the gangster Dilpreet Dhahan who had attacked Parmish Verma. 

He added that as artists passionate about their music, they can’t run away from following their dreams despite being vulnerable or being under threat. “Jo cheezen ho rahi hain aap unhe taal nahin sakte, but you can be cautious (You can’t stop these things but you will have to take precautions). Hum isi cheez ke liye paida huye hain, hum yahi karengi, hum kahin aur bhi chale jate thai to phir wapas aa jate hain. Jahan aapka dil hai, wahi kaam karna chahiye (We are born to make music and we will continue to make music despite the fear and uncertainties. Even if we leave the field, we will come back. We should follow our hearts),” said the line from Amar Singh Chamkila where Diljit who played the titular character says he will continue to sing despite the threats.

Moreover, he added that because of his fame he can not roam in his kaccha, and not take a shower. He explained, “I can’t do it because I can’t be photographed like that. I cannot say no to my fans because of what I am today it is because of them.”

Meanwhile, he also showered praises on Netflix’s Amar Singh Chamlika and Diljit Dosanjh as the perfect Chamlika. He said, “They made the right choice by casting Diljit. If they had not cast him, we would have not been able to connect with the film. Before anyone else, the film was made for the Punjabi audience.”

Amar Singh Chamlika is currently streaming on Netflix.
