Adnan Sami: ‘I was hit by a very delightful, pleasant kind of shock when Padma Awards were announced’

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Adnan Sami has carved a niche for himself and Indians have a special place for his music in their hearts. The singer’s musical success is unprecedented with chartbusters such as Lift Kara De and Tera Chehra.

However, the talented singer took a self-imposed sabbatical, leaving millions of fans waiting for him to make a comeback. The Padma Shri winner has finally decided to end his long break with a beautiful track, Tu Yaad Aya, produced and presented by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.

Tu Yaad Aya, directed by Arvindr Khaira marks Sami’s return to the music scene after a long hiatus. The celebrated musician’s latest track Tu Yaad Aya is a contemporary, soulful melody, imprinted with signature Adnan Sami magic and style.

Adnan shares, ‘I had voluntarily taken a sabbatical. Even though one may not actively work in the public eye, a composer, singer or any creative person would be toying with ideas of what do next. When the Padma Awards were announced recently, I was hit by a very delightful, pleasant kind of shock. I was overwhelmed. I was engulfed by a deep sense of gratitude towards my country and my fans, who have all along appreciated my work and showered me with so much love and warmth in all these years.’

He further adds, ‘Bhushan, T-Series and I share a very old and cherished relationship that goes back to almost 20 years and we were in talks to work together for some time. I also felt bahot ho gaya aaram (have already rested a lot), I owe it to people who have given me so much to give them something back. Tu Yaad Aya is my way of saying thank you to everyone for all the affection and love you have blessed me with for years.’

With music and lyrics by Kunaal Vermaa, Tu Yaad Aya features actor Adah Sharma opposite Adnan. The song is expected to be out soon and we can’t wait any longer!
