Adnan said that Ehd-e-Wafa was like a dream to him for which he struggled his whole life.
The 24-year-old shared, “My roots are in Taunsa Sharif. When I got to know about the National Academy of Performing Arts, it was my dream to be a part of it, and therefore I managed to take admission there. Three years of training over there is what got me Ehd-e-Wafa.”
Talking about his passion for acting, he shared, “I was passionate about acting from childhood. In school, I used to do plays. I always had an interest, but I never had any platform to learn and enter this field. After being a part of NAPA, I learned how to act.”
Talking about his family, he shared, “My father is no more with us, and I have two elder brothers and a sister who is younger than me. My brothers and mother have always been very supportive about my career, but initially, my father had a problem with it, but later I convinced him.”
“A child traveled all the way from Mianwali with his father just to see me. He was standing outside of my house, and as I came out, he was surprised and couldn’t utter a word. This was a completing experience for me,” the actor recalled one of the biggest moments of his life.
He further shared how he got his role and said, “The writer of Ehd-e-Wafa demanded that a Siraiki actor must play this character, and he took many auditions but didn’t like anyone. One of my friends who works in HUM shared this with me, and I sent an audition tape, and after that, I was selected.”
Adnan Samad was not comfortable performing Gulzar in Ehd-e-Wafa as this was his first big project and that too with well-established stars. However, the response he received from the audience was overwhelming.
