The Punjab Police Head Constable, Amrik Singh Shera is currently on cloud nine and why not, he has all the right reasons for it!
The actual lyricist of the universal HIT “Kala Chashma”, Amrik Singh Shera, has now been officially permitted to pen songs. Aged 43, Amrik now has the permission letter from the Director General of Police (DGP) office to pen songs, have his music cassettes released and give interviews to TV channels.
A native of Talwandi Chaudhrian village near Jalandhar, Shera made headlines when his song “Kala Chashma”, which he penned in 1990 while still a teenager in Class IX, was adopted for Siddharth Malhotra-Katrina Kaif starrer “Baar Baar Dekho.” The song was first rendered by Punjabi singer Amar Arshi during a performance in England. A music company there released the song, which became an instant hit. And that proved to be a turning point in Shera’s life.
Soon he was flooded with several offers but his job in Punjab Police held him back. All that has changed now and he is in the process of signing for another film.
The humble cop wants to make his village famous too.
