Azaan Sami, the son of Indian singer Adnan Sami Khan, says that he loves his father but his home is Pakistan.
In an interview with the BBC Asian Network, the 25-year-old music creator and scriptwriter unwrapped for the first time about his father, who is often in the eye of disagreement for his tweets and public comments about Pakistan.
“As far as I am worried, the reason I have never spoken about this before is that he is my father, I love him, I respect him,” Azaan said.
“What I choose to call home, now is my choice, and I chose to work in Pakistan.”
Azaan is the son of Khan and his former wife, Pakistani actress Zeba Bakhtiar.
He also added, “My father is more of a counselor, somebody with whom I pursue advice from about my work. We have had a very experienced relationship. I lived with my mom.”
Sami, a father of two, further said that he has lived a large chunk of his teen years in Pakistan and he feels vast pride in the film industry which is family to him.
