Exercise and Dieting

"There's a misconception that people think that I underwent some surgery or took some kind of medical treatment which is absolutely false," he said staunchly refuting all rumours.
The singer added, "I've had a tremendous amount of struggle with my weight from many years. I was 230 kilos once upon a time. And I lost 130 kilos, it was not an easy journey. But the point was that it was something that I really needed to do," he said.
The singer further added, "I controlled entire intake and I did plenty of exercises and I play a lot of squash and that's how I've maintained it. And I do it primarily because it's very important to be healthy."

Alongside his talent, it was his heavyweight that made him stay in news for a long time. Adnan who initially chose to live life with his excessive weight, made people lose hope of seeing him fit ever.
But to their shock, Sami in the year 2018 blew away the minds off many with his massive weight loss. The actor had lost over 130 kgs of his weight and looked his fittest best.
