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 Sami 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.
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.
