In Conversation With Ammy Virk

Thursday 23rd May 2019

Muklawa is an upcoming romantic comedy Punjabi period film starring Ammy Virk along with punjabi actress and model Sonam Bajwa.

What does Maklawa mean?

In the olden days, primarily Punjabi tradition dictated that a newlywed woman should stay back at her parents` house for a while after her wedding. It was forbidden for the groom to meet the bride for an agreed period of time to the extent that the groom was not even allowed to enter the bride`s village during this period. Muklawa is the story of a man who sets out to romance his own wife - in an era where life was simple, but love was difficult!

We were busy speaking to Ammy Virk about his new film, childhood and his future.

Tell us about your new film Muklawa?

I am not going to give away too much, do watch the film with your family, including your grandparents and you will understand what is the film about. I am very excited.

How is Muklawa different to other films you have acted in or produced?

All my other films so far were mostly set in the present, but Maklawa is a period film.

How was it like working with actress Sonam Bajwa?

Sonam and I are good friends, and this is our third film together. It is always great working with her.

How long did the shooting for Muklawa last and where was it shot?

The shooting for Muklawa lasted almost forty days and it was shot all over including Rajasthan.

Who has been your biggest musical inspiration?

When I was younger, I used to listen to Surjit Bindrakhia a lot and he is my biggest musical inspiration.

Where do you see yourself in five years time?

I want to still be making good Punjabi and Hindi films. The more love I receive, the more music and films I will release.

When asked about his thoughts on UK Music industry, Ammy responded:

"I have listened to a lot of UK music would like to try the UK style of music myself."

Favourite food?

It has to be daal makhni and saag.

Tell us something about your childhood that not many people know?

I was a very 'shararti' kid and always played cricket or 'gulli danda' outside. My skin used to turn really dark in the summers and turned lighter during the winters.

You are a big cricket fan, any predictions on the Cricket World Cup 2019?

For me, its India.

Have you been to Pakistan?

"I have never been to Pakistan but would love to go. I may be going in November this year for a Kabbadi tournament with my friends."

Muklawa is at your nearest cinema on 24 May 2019 and it will no doubt be a hit.
