On Wednesday, the makers of Afghan - In Search Of A Home reveled the first look of Adnan Sami as the protagonist of the film.
Adnan Sami, a Pakistani singer, received Indian citizenship in December 2015. Adnan Sami's Pakistani passport expired and was not renewed by Pakistan's government. The singer then submitted a request for Indian citizenship to the Home Ministry on humanitarian grounds, which was approved later in the year.
