Public Relations Web Desk.Losing over 100 kilos was not an easy journey for musician and singer Adnan Sami. He says it was exercise and proper eating habits that helped him on his path to fitness and has now put an end to all “misunderstandings” about going under the knife.“I have struggled tremendously with my weight over the years. I was 230 kg at one point. And I lost 130 kg, it was not an easy journey. But the point was, it was something that I really wanted. I needed to,” he says.
Adnan adds: “So, I have worked hard to maintain it and you know I have done it all through exercise and dieting. There is a misconception that people think I did some surgery or have taken any kind of medical treatment which is absolutely wrong.”
“I controlled my intake throughout and I exercised a lot and I play a lot of squash, that’s how I kept it up. And I do it mainly because it’s so important to stay healthy.” The 50-year-old singer, who has been making headlines for deleting his social media account, revealed that he never deleted the posts from his Instagram handle but archived them. He wanted to come up with a new music video ‘Goodbye’ and surprise his fans after a gap of two years.
“I took a two-year hiatus because I think the whole world took a two-year hiatus because of the pandemic. And so the world had stopped and there was no point in releasing anything during that time. I wanted a little bit of myself. Time to catch up and reevaluate my whole life. I think it took me a while to decide how I wanted to move forward with my upcoming journey and how to reorganize myself.”
He spoke about the idea behind the track, saying: “‘Goodbye’ is a song about heartbreak. But I wanted to write a song that was more universal than just a romantic break-up, but There is also a kind of song that expresses people’s feelings, what they feel when they are away from their loved ones, regardless of whether that person is a partner or a very close friend or even a close friend. That’s the parents too.”
It took him a few months to compete with this song. He shares: “The song is a fusion between contemporary and traditional sounds and instruments as I have always felt that we should always retain a certain element of our culture.”
What is he planning next? And he replies: “I’m going to play a lot. This is one of my attempts at my new approach to life in my musical journey, which I’m calling ‘Adnan 2.0’. I took a lot of hiatus between my music.” Release and I intend to reduce it. Now there are a lot of songs that I have put together and shortlisted with Saregama.”
