Adnan Sami will play an Afghan musician in his acting debut

The singer and composer will star in ‘Afghan In Search Of A Home’, directed by Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru.

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.”

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
