A big surprise

Hell hath no fury like a blogger whose comment space is hijacked by commentators to talk about something that has nothing to do with the post. This post of mine was mercilessly used to discuss the tremendous amount of weight Adnan Sami has lost. So yesterday when Rebellion sent me a video link, I thought - I have to put this on the blog. If nothing, for Adnan's sake who for his hard work (and no 'alternative methods of weight loss' I hope), deserves more than a few comments on an irrelevant post. At a stage where any lesser mortal would think he's gone too far and give up, the extremely talented Adnan persisted, and how.

When I bumped into him in Pakistan last year, he was in transition, but now... sigh, how do I put it? Well, some (ahem!) may just say he actually looks hot! I know I sound judgmental, but finally, his presence in his own music videos romancing hot babes in skimpy outfits seems justified.

The Before

The After

Way to go, Adnan! Special toast at the bar to a new lease on your career! :)

Where art thou, Neihal and Rebellion??

Sayesha said...

BRONZE!! I don't think I have claimed any medal at your bar.

Can't watch the video's from office cos they are blocked :( Comment is just to claim the bronze :D Will watch it later at home though!

Cheeku said...

Looks like i need to take some serious inspiration from Adnan :D
Sheesh, i hope my videos wont b in the opposite order, from slim to err, fat ;)


Sakshi said...

Sheesh.. I am becoming predictable with spamming.. and my sistahs deserting me..
Sigh! what a shame..

Apun ka den mein janee ke baad video dekh tha huin

Shek said...

he lost a million pounds!!! I would be scared at first too, like the chick on the video.

I am surprised he still maintains that voice inspite of losing his entire gut. I thought his deep voice was a result of his bottomless gut.

Thisisme said...

Melody said...

And I believe he's gonna start acting soon too!

And PS: Is it just me or does the beginning sound a lot like Jackson (early work)?

Bivas said...

@Melody: Adnan had in fact acted in pakistani movies in his earlier days with Zeba Bakhtiar...n he was Actually very thin then...
remember his first album Barsaat...most songs were from his film...including the 'dholki' song!

The Soul of Alec Smart said...

Well, with my mom giving me not-so-subtle hints about taking a leaf out of Adnan's book, this post was definitely the last straw!! I need to start taking the signs God's sending my way... By dozens!!

Sayesha said...

Watched 'em finally? :D

Hahahahaha! :D

Muahahahahahaahhahaaha! :D

Now I think you just wait till the bronze is gone before you comment! :P

#NYC Bewda,

Hahaha! Even I thought his unique voice was due to his weight! :)

Did you just call me an elephant on a post like this? Hmmmph! :/

I know! He looks cute, huh? ;)

//Now maula can lift karao him easily ;)!!

Acting?? Oh man. Another Himesh? :O

There is going to be a Blogcamp in India on 16th of June. Around 250 bloggers will be taking part in the event.

This is what they say on their blog: "The way unconferences work is that, you don't have an agenda, rather we will put up a white board, where participants will themselves add the topics they are interested to speak upon. Depending upon the number of speakers we will go for multiple threads. There will be some intense discussions, we will have a lot of fun and yes there will be blogging, video blogging, photo blogging, podcasting ... everything under the blogger sun."

The registrations have started. We are planning to have 250 participants from all over the country. There are some people taking part virtually, using youtube, slideshare, skype etc. if you are interested please add your name to the wiki.
