How Adnan Sami became slim
a new slimmer look, Adnan Sami reveals that he feel like an altogether
new human post the weight loss. He is a firm believer in fate and
attributes his success to the Almighty.
"Frankly there is no
such secret. No body can ever predict which song is going to be a hit
or a flop. If such a formula was known to any one then all songs would
have been hits. So there can be no predictions.
But I try to
sing those songs which I like personally so that I can enjoy them
myself and so do the listeners. I try to be choosy with what I do and
the rest I leave to God."
Speaking to us at the Spectral Harmony Studio on Saturday last where he
was present to record a song "Oh Jaana Oh Jaana, Yeh Dil Ka Afsana"
under the baton ship of music director Bhappi Lahiri, Adnan is full of
praise for his music composer.
The song is for the film 'Jhoom-Dance With Me Again' produced by
Aaishwarya Babbar son of producer and director B Subhash under the
banner Aaishwarya Movie Productions. The film will be directed by
Shweta B Subhash and is written by Malveika B Subhash, daughters of B
Adnan says it was his third recording with Bhappida.
"I have been his fan ever since my childhood." The song which we have
recorded today is very fun-filled and youthful song. Bhappi Da always
composes awesome melodies and his sense of rhythm is also great. So in
this song too there is tremendous melody and rhythm and a lot of heart
is put behind composing the song. I have also tried my best to sing it
with all my heart.
He feels that the people are going to like the songs as 'the melody and
the mood of the songs are very bright and this song is a very peppy
Very fond of listening to Bhappi Lahiri's songs, he cites a number of
them as examples. "Songs like 'Chalte Chalte' and 'Dil Mein Ho Tum' are
very beautiful songs. There are many songs which can be named like the
ones from the film 'Namak Halaal' were fantastic."
He would have loved to sing all of Bhappi's songs.
The talented singer feels that B Subhash is a very good director and his films speak for themselves.
In Adnan's opinion the two different styles that of Bhappi Lahiri and
himself would result in a fusion. He likes Bhappi's style of work. "He
knows exactly what he wants and he also gives the singer the freedom to
put in his own creativity to use."
goes on to add, "He never limits his singers. Thus the singer puts in
his creativity and the resulting fusion becomes very interesting. He
encourages the singer to make his own changes which I think is
The composer in Adnan does not get in the way while he is performing
for another director. "When ever I come for a play-back singing, I come
solely as a singer and I try to meet to the demand of the composer.
there is my flavour in the song but it is that of a singer and not of a
composer. I never say that I could have done better as composer. Every
person has a different creative vision and one should always respect
According to the singer, it would be an honour for him to have Bhappi
sing his composition. He feels Bhappi Lahiri's 'melody is always strong
and his fusion sense between western and eastern music is tremendous.'
'sense of rhythm too is very good.' But, according to Adnan, the music
composer's greatest quality is his Indian melody which is very strong
and registers with the listeners.
Regarding his weight loss, Adnan says he feels like he is floating! "I
feel like a new human being." According to him, it has been a tough
journey losing so much weight. He admits putting in a lot of effort and
"My health had reached such a point where my doctors had given up all
hope. They had given me an ultimatum that if I don't start taking care
of my health I would survive only for six more months. It came as a
shock for me. And thus for my survival I took this decision of staying
