Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra’s film Baar Baar Dekho got a decent start at the box office but its song Kala Chashma was a hit since the time it landed. We all have heard and grooved on the song and also know that it is a rework version. The song is originally a Punjabi track from the ’90s. But, as per a report in Hindustan Times, a head constable in the Punjab police in Kapurthala, Amrik Singh Shera is also one of the writers of the song.

Amrik Singh, 43, a native of Talwandi Chaudhrian village near Jalandhar had no idea that his song, written in 1990, would feature in a movie. “Two months ago, I got a call from one of my friends that ‘Kala Chashma’ was being played on one of the channels. I do not know how I felt. I was happy but also shocked about everything that was happening, ” said the writer in the interview.

As per the report, he signed the agreement and got only Rs 11,000 for the song. He claims as he was approached by Jalandhar-based Angel Record Company four months ago for other songs “and I was told that a Mumbai-based company needed my song to be played at the inauguration of cement firm”.
