We have last seen Adnan Sami in “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” as a qawwal in a dargah singing, “Bhar do jholi meri”, his first qawwali, which he consented to only for Salman Khan, his oldest friend in Bollywood. Before that, he was seen with Bollywood beauties like Rani Mukerji, Ameesha Patel, Raveena Tandon, Dia Mirza, Bhumika Chawla, in various music videos of his album Tera Chehra.
Now, he is set to make his acting debut in Bollywood with ‘Afghan-In Search of a Home’, directed by Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru. Adnan, 43, will be seen playing a musician in the movie. The singer and the directors last worked together in Salman Khan-starer Lucky…No Time for Love. Adnan gave the music for the 2005 film.
Film critic Taran Adarsh confirms the news. He posted a picture of Sami along with the caption “Adnan Sami to debut as an actor with Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru’s new film #Afghan – In Search Of A Home… Plays a musician in this movie”.

‘Afghan- In Search Of A Home’ is the story of a musician refugee from Afghanistan who flees his country of birth under difficult circumstances, in search of identity and a home.When Radhika and Vinay shared the story with Adnan he had goosebumps listening to it… He was in awe of a story full of joys and tears, rubabs and dholaks, Invisible boundaries and displaced homes.
Adnan said “the movie is very close” to his heart as it is his first movie as an actor and as an Indian.
