Singer and music composer Adnan Sami will make his acting debut in the movie Afghan In Search Of A Home, DNA reported. The film will be directed by Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, who have made many music videos and the films Lucky: No Time for Love (2005) and Sanam Teri Kasam (2016). The 46-year-old singer had scored the music for Lucky: No Time for Love, which starred Salman Khan and Sneha Ullal.
Sami will play an Afghan musician who tries to find his home in his first feature. “He (Adnan) is a royalty from Afghanistan and even his forefathers are from there,” the filmmakers told DNA. “We were discussing what happens to the war zone countries in terms of their art, culture. Places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya and Syria are culturally rich countries. What usually happens in war zone countries is museums are locked, films are not being allowed to be made. So, there is no art and culture.”
The shoot will begin in February next year, and will take place in Delhi, Amritsar, Banaras and Afghanistan. The Afghan government has promised its support for the movie. “The counsel general fondly remembers Amitabh Bachchan for shooting of Khuda Gawah in Afghanistan,” Sapru told the newspaper. “They are happy we will shoot there. They are extending their hospitality to us.”
