Singer Adnan Sami and his wife Roya have named their daughter after holy Islamic city of Medina, celebrity website Pinkvilla reported.Roya gave birth to Medina in Munich (Germany) and hence she holds a German citizenship by birth. Adnan in an interview with a leading daily was asked about the same, responding to which, Adnan said, “So what? That doesn’t stop her from being a Hindustani. She will eventually come to India and we’ll apply for her Indian citizenship.Mumbai is home to us. Medina Sami Khan was born in Munich because Roya’s family lives in Germany and she had five sisters to help her while I was travelling for work.”When asked the inspiration behind naming her Medina, the ace singer said, “I have named her after the city of Medina, which embraced Prophet Mohammed when he was forced to leave Mecca. Even today, the city is known for its love and hospitality. It’s also here that you’ll hear the most beautiful Azaan, immersing you in a wave of spirituality. So, I felt that Medina was an apt name for my baby.”Adnan was last seen in Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan where he sang a qawwali titled Bhar Do Jholi Meri.On the work front, Adnan was recently honoured with Asian Award from the British Parliament’s House of Lords for Outstanding Achievement in Music. And he considers his darling daughter as his lucky charm. While accepting the award, Sami said, “I dedicate this award to my late father and receive it in the name of India.”
