Adnan Sami has been an integral part of the Bollywood industry and yesterday on January 26, the singer was conferred with the 4th highest civilian honor in the country, Padma Shri on Republic Day 2020. While many have celebrated over the government's decision Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill attacked the Narendra Modi government for honoring him with the Padma Shri.
Now, Adnan Sami has reacted to the same and called out the spokesperson for his rude and unjustified statements.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Sami said: “Hey kid, did you get ur brain from a ‘Clearance Sale’ or from a second-hand novelty store? Did they teach u in Berkley that a son is to be held accountable or penalized for the acts of his parents? And ur a lawyer? Is that what u learned in law school? Good luck with that!”
Previously, Shergill who is a Supreme Court Lawyer and an alumni of Berkeley University had tweeted: “Kargil war veteran and retired army officer Mohammad Sanaullah who fought for India declared “ foreigner” after #NRC and #adnansami whose family fought against India honored with Padma Shri - This is the magic of #NRC & Govt Chamchagiri !!”
Sami, was born in London to a Pakistani Air Force veteran and had later applied for Indian citizenship in 2015 and became a citizen of the country in January 2016.
Apart from Adnan Sami, several Bollywood stars including Kangana Ranaut, filmmaker Karan Johar, and producer Ekta Kapoor were awarded Padma Shri for their contribution in the field of performing arts.
