In a recent interview, the 42-year-old singer said, "My belief in destiny was absolutely well founded because I was born on 15 August, look at the irony, it could have been 14 th, but no, He made sure I was born on the 15 th of August- so that was the hint number one."
Sami's citizenship was rejected two years back, but he made several representations to India's Home Minister Rajnath Singh about his citizenship with a fresh application in March 2015.
