Adnan Sami should be kicked out of India
days back, music director Aadesh Shrivastava lambasted Adnan Sami in
front of everybody at singer Richa Sharma's birthday party held at BJN
He insulted him calling him a non-singer and claiming he had no right
to be in the Indian music industry. While we thought that matter was
closed that night itself, the whole thing is now taking a very serious
turn what with Aadesh hell bent on kicking Adnan Sami out of India.
About the recent turn of events, Aadesh states, "I am the Vice
President of the Cine Music Director's Association and a man of strong
principles. Adnan has utter disrespect for Indian laws and regulations.
If he wants to give music to Indian films he should respect the laws of
our country. He has no right to work in India.
"People like him who come from Pakistan are ready to work here even at
peanut rates because they get a global platform. But do you ever see
them lauding our nation and its people for that who give them this
opportunity at the first place? Do they buy any properties here? They
send the entire money back to their country. Also, if he is so
desperate to work in India then why doesn't he posses the required
"Whenever someone tries to stop people like him to work here, we face
oppositions and political pressures. I have gone to USA and worked
there but I had to follow the laws of that country. My activities on
any country's land depend on whether I have a work or business or
tourist visa or permit. When we have such laws existing here and people
like Adnan making a mockery out of it how can I remain quiet?"
About his next plan of action, Aadesh states, "I along with other music
association members have started a crusade to inform each and every
single filmmaker that a music composer or singer must be registered
with their respective associations and if they are not then they won't
be allowed in their projects."
Aadesh claims it to be nothing personal against Adnan and adds, "Why
should we welcome Pakistani singers and musicians here? Does their
nation give visas to our living legends like Lata Mangeshkar, Javed
Akhtarsaab and Jagjit Singhji? So why ignore the phenomenal talent that
already exists in our country and NRIs." -Sampurn
