The show must go on: Adnan Siddiqui reflects on 2021 in heartfelt note

Actor Adnan Siddiqui recently took to Instagram to reflect on the ups and downs of the past year. Sharing a detailed note, Siddiqui explained that while 2021 was a year pierced with moments of “sadness”, it also offered its fair share of joy and “creative fulfilment”. 

The actor wrote, “Bidding adieu to 2021, a year that was bittersweet for me. Resumed travel after more than a year-long hiatus, a refresher in the otherwise staid scenario. Took up writing once again, something that my father always wished I should be regular with, but work commitments didn’t allow me to be.”

He continued, “Glad that I am honouring (at least striving to) his wishes. So there’s happiness, hope and creative fulfilment.”

Reflecting on the tough times, he added, “2021 brought some sadness too as I lost a few close cousins and friends. I’d, however, remember them with great fondness for [they] loved and lived life to the fullest.”

He concluded, “A day to go before we enter into the New Year, parting shot on a filmy note: the show must go on.”

The Mom star, who was recently in Dubai for Dubai Expo 2020, also shared his fan moment on Instagram with composer A R Rahman. Posting a selfie of the two, Siddiqui penned, “It was an evening not to be forgotten ever.” The Sammi star then shared how he had booked his flight back home on December 21 but then decided to stay back for Rahman’s live performance.

“I was supposed to fly back on December 21, stayed put another day only to see A R Rahman sahib perform live,” Siddiqui revealed. “Saw first hand that beyond mass hysteria, which can be generated easily, lies massive respect in a way that people wait three hours for you to perform and then keep on standing through the show. He commands this much and more.”

He went on to add, “It was a privilege to soak in his ethereal music. Live. His humility is as infectious as the melodies he creates. Not every day an international icon takes you backstage and introduces you to his crew. Not everyone can be A R Rahman.”
