About Adnan Sami
Adnan Sami Khan is an Indian singer, musician, music composer, pianist and actor. He is credited for being the first person to play Indian classical music on the piano in a style he created through the Santoor. Adnan's first single was released in 1986 with an English hit single in the Middle East which went straight to the No. 1 position in its first week on the music charts of the region with a song he wrote and recorded in his voice for the United Nations and UNICEF called "Run for his life". The song "Tu Sirf Mera Mehboob" from the Hindi film Ajnabee, sung by Adnan, had become a rage and was declared a superhit by Screen Magazine, who called him the pop personality of the year in 2001. As a classical concert pianist, Adnan Sami has had the honor of giving solo performances before such royalty as the King of Sweden and King Hussein of Jordan. Adnan's performance of a qawwali called "Bhar Do Jholi Meri" from the blockbuster film Bajrangi Bhaijaan, released in July 2015, became a worldwide hit; Adnan appeared in the movie as well. This was the first time Adnan attempted to sing a qawwali at the insistence of actor Salman Khan, who starred in the film.
