‘Kala Chashma’ fame Amrik Singh Shera (47), a head constable in the Punjab Police, has been basking in the limelight these days. He recently appeared in a show hosted by cricketer Harbhajan Singh.
While sharing his interview experience, Shera said he got a call from the team of the show and was asked to reply to every question with a song composed by him.
Whenever I see anything wrong prevailing in the society, I write about it and will keep on doing so in the future as well, whether these songs get released or not. That is why I have now decided to release a book with inspirational songs. Amrik Singh Shera, Head constable
“In one of the questions, I was asked to reply to a situation where I am in a meeting with a senior official and my wife calls me up. How will I react? So, I replied: ‘Kidda chakka tera phone, ni munda duty vich fasseya peya, chale meeting ni ajj vadde saab di, ni main vardi ch kasseya peya,” Shera shared.
“Then I got a selection call. It was an amazing moment for me. I met several people and developed contacts,” he said. Shera is writing several new songs and one of his songs is set to get released soon.
One of the other projects in the pipeline is the release of his book ‘Virsa Punjab Da’, in which he has penned 150 songs on various issues concerning the society. “Whenever I see anything wrong prevailing in the society, I write about it and will keep on doing so in the future as well, whether these songs get released or not. That is why I have now decided to release a book with inspirational songs,” he said.
Shera said he started writing at the age of 14. “Since then, I have written several songs defining the culture of the state, highlighting environmental problems, water shortage, etc, which are completely different from the songs that get released in the present days,” he said.
Shera thanked his seniors in the Punjab Police for motivating him and encouraging him towards his passion. He had also received a permission letter from the DGP around three years ago, allowing him to perform anywhere.
He has also penned a song on the Punjab Police: “Sari duniya to disdi alag bai, khaki vardi nal banni lal pagg bai’ (I stand out from the rest of the world in a khaki uniform and red turban).
