'I have grown up in India but Pakistan is my home'

Singer Adnan Sami, who impressed Telugu music lovers with songs like, O Madhu from Julai, Oh Priya Piya from Ishq, Shankar Dada Zindabad and many more, was born in Pakistan but he opted for Indian citizenship in 2015.

However, the latest sensation is that his son Azaan Sami Khan called Pakistan as his home and his words triggered a huge buzz among fans. Azaan is the son of  Adnan Sami and his first wife, Zeba, who is a Pakistani actress. They both got divorced after three years of marriage in 1993.

Azaan, who is a music composer himself, stated that "My father has made certain decisions of where he wants to live and which country he wants to call home, and I respect that. What I choose to call home now is my choice and I chose to work in Pakistan".

Azaan spent most of his teen days in India. But now, he prefers to call Pakistan his home. "I have great friends in India, but Pakistan is my home. In spite of growing up in India, I feel Pakistan industry is my family. There is immense pride for me, and hope and ambition, that I contribute to an industry which I call home," he said.

He went on to say that Adnan Sami and he shares a good relationship despite growing up with his mother all the while. He called his father more of a friend and mentor than a father.

"I go to my father to get any advice in life. Sometimes we may not speak for months but when we do, we just get each other." The statements from Azaan have been fodder to many trolls and abuses. However, a few suggested that he shouldn't apologize for his words and wished that he contributes well to the industry irrespective of the country.
