Adnan Sami, who was last seen on screen in BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN as the qawwali singer in Dargah, is on cloud nine personally as well as professionally; just few months back he became father to a lovely daughter.
Adnan Sami is all set to make his silver screen debut with the romantic musical, AFGHAN. The singer now turned actor will be playing the role of an Afghan musician displaced from his country, who then seeks solace in India and finds love in many forms. Directed by Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao, the films goes on floors in August and is looking at an early 2018 release.
Adnan is looking forward to acting in the film which is very different from shooting music videos. He will be living a character that he can empathize with well owing to his Afghan roots. The character has been inspired from the stories of his forefathers.
Speaking about the same an elated Adnan says, “We belong to the royal family of King Amanullah and still have palaces in Herat, Afghanistan. My great grandfather conquered Kafirastan and renamed it Nuristan. My grandfather was a provincial governor. After my father’s death, I’m the family patriarch now. I’ve never spoken about that part of my life because I didn’t want my family to open any doors for me but carve a niche on my own. Since I took a path no one had tread, they didn’t know which doors to open anyway,”
Adnan, who composed the music for LUCKY- No time, for love was waiting to reunite with the director duo. Though he has not been to Afghanistan in a while, he is looking forward to shooting there and across India as the film is based on Indo-Afghan brotherhood.
The singer became a father to a beautiful girl Medina born on May 10th. It’s been a month and the baby already has her father wrapped around her finger. “I’ve become an expert in shopping for baby girls, from hats and shoes to frocks and a baby suit that has ‘No dating allowed… ever’ scrawled across as a warning to future suitors, a la Robert De Niro in MEET THE FOCKERS,” he laughed.
In spite of taking on the acting mantle, his music will not take a backseat, “But while I admire jugglers, I can’t multitask. Right now my focus is Afghan. I’m not just acting in it, I also have to compose seven songs for it,” he signed off.
Check out Adnan look in the first poster of the film, wherein he nails the sufiyaana andaaz and we can’t notice him at all certainly if you look closely at it he looks surreal.
