Adnan Sami says “waited for a decade to get Indian citizenship”

MUMBAI: Pakistani singer Adnan Sami says he is in a state of numbness as he is not believing that “I have got Indian citizenship.”

The singer, in an exclusive interview with Times of India, said “I have lived in different parts of the world and experienced a lot of things, but there are certain moments in your life which are life-changing, this is one of those, it is a milestone.”

Sami doesn’t seem to care for his statements about Pakistan back home.  “…And then there were people over there [in Pakistan] who were trying to unnecessarily be provocative, but I didn’t care.”

He relates his birth date ‘August 15’ as his destiny to be an Indian. “…I was born on August 15 — look at the irony, it could have been 14th, but no, He (God) made sure I was born on the 15th of August — so that was the hint number one.


And then I went to study in England and when I was doing my A-levels, I had to write a thesis in history on any world leader. I could have chosen Napoleon, George Washington… I chose Gandhi, that’s hint number two. A lot of people were like “are you sure you are going to be doing that” and I said “yeah, I have an admiration for him so I did that.”

He went on to detail that “My wife is from Germany, for example. I could have gone to Germany, but I wanted to go for India. I feel that a certain quest was there right from my birth, it’s just that the paperwork took 46 years.”
