Adnan Sami opens up in his latest interview about his positive outlook on life ever since his daughter Medina came into his life.
The singer revealed “Grateful is a small word to express my gratitude as God has blessed me with so many opportunities to restart my life.”
The journey began with losing weight, that’s when Sami took the opportunity to restart his life.
“When I was obese, I reached a point where I was about to meet death, and I lost weight to restart my life. When Baba (my father) passed away, I was emotionally choked, but then I also found my soulmate to restart my peaceful married life.”
Speaking about his daughter, who was born to him and his wife earlier this year, Sami said, “Yes, she is my heartbeat and I cannot thank God enough for this angel. I think she has got the best of both of us. She is roly-poly and is a very happy child like I was as a kid. But her eyes are deep green, like Roya’s. Suddenly, I have discovered an ocean of love in my heart for her I never knew it existed.”
Furthermore, after having witnessed his wife go through pregnancy, Sami has a new look and appreciation for women.
“I genuinely believe that physically and emotionally, women are far stronger than men. The amount of pain they have to endure for a childbirth, a man cannot take an ounce of it. A toothache or a stomach upset is the end of our world at times,” he admitted.
“I want my daughter to grow up with a sense of independence, with a strong emotionally secure mind and a tremendous amount of self-worth. All these come from education. So, that will be the foundation of her upbringing. I would want her to be well-versed with the world around us, have an opinion on everything and be pro-active about anything that is wrong.”
“It is easy to criticise a situation, but the visionary always finds a solution. I want her to contribute to the solution.”
Crediting his father for his diplomatic attitude, he added:
“Well, I inherited it genetically, you see! My Baba (Arshad Sami Khan) served 14 countries as a diplomat. How could I not have a diplomatic nature.”
The singer is currently working on his debut film titled Afghan.
