The MNCKS even demanded the authorities concerned not to grant him an extension on the visa.Official of MNCKS was quoted as saying, We have asked the authorities to not allow the extension. We hope they pay heed to what we have said."

"We have a lot of talented artists of our own; we do not need a Pakistani to come and sing here. Besides, whatever money he earns here, he probably sends to Pakistan, and that country will be using the same money against us. So he has to leave the country," he added.

Controversy over Adnan's visa popped up following his statement before a family court where the singer had stated that he had a Pakistani passport and was residing in India on the basis of visa granted to him from time to time. Sami also claimed that his visa was valid from Sept 26, 2012 till Oct 6, 2013.

Here it can be recalled that Adnan is entangled in a legal battle with his ex wife Sabah Galadari over the possession of a duplex flat in Lokhandwala Complex.
