SONY LIV is all set to stream the highly anticipated musical thriller series Chamak. The show boasts of one of the biggest albums of this year with some of the biggest stalwarts of the Punjabi music industry. In this star-studded series, actress Isha Talwar will be seen essaying the role of Jasmin Sandhu, aka Jazz, a true-blooded Punjabi and a svelte musician whose passion for singing and playing the dhol knows no bounds. Delving into her role, Isha shared a few insights into her preparation to infuse authenticity into her character.
Isha Talwar said, “For me getting into a character, it is very important to understand the milieu of the region the story is based in! So, I chose to live with my friend Jassi Sangha in Moga, Punjab, to see and breathe the workings of a Punjabi household outside of Mumbai, the city I grew up in. I had to find Isha’s roots first to get to Jazz’s roots. Additionally, I learned to play the dhol to bring authenticity to my performance.”
Isha further teased a few traits of Jazz, revealing, “Jasmeet Kaur, aka Jazz, is a struggling singer and dhol player navigating her way to get the right opportunities in the Punjab music industry. In the world of Chamak, she finds herself lost. Jazz is totally unrestrained as an individual, allowing herself to experience every emotion fully”
Created and directed by Rohit Jugraj Chauhan, Chamak boasts a star-studded cast, including Paramvir Singh Cheema, Manoj Pahwa, Gippy Garewal, Mohit Malik, Isha Talwar, Mukesh Chhabra, Prince Kanwaljit Singh, Suvinder (Vicky) Pal, and Akasa Singh.
