Abdul Rahman, better known by his stage name AR Rahman, is the only Indian to have received two Academy Awards in 2009 for his outstanding work in the films Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours. On the professional front, AR Rahman’s long and illustrious career is well-known. His personal life has always been something he has preferred to keep private. The singer rarely appears in public with his family.
AR Rahman’s daughter, Khatija Rahman, confirmed her engagement and shared a photo with Riyasdeen Shaikh Mohamed on her social media account, according to the latest sources. The teenage singer’s unexpected announcement enthralled her whole fan base.
AR Rahman’s daughter, Khatija Rahman, took to Instagram on January 3, 2022 to announce their engagement to her vast fan following. Riyasdeen Shaik Mohamed, her fiance, was featured in a photo collage made by the great vocalist. Khatija looked stunning in a pink and silver ensemble, complete with a matching mask, garland, and jewellery, in the collage on the right side. On the left, we can see Khatija’s fiance’s monochrome photograph. The singer, on the other hand, revealed that she and Riyasdeen will marry on December 29, 2021. Khatija scribbled a note in the caption of the precious photo collage, which may be read as follows:
“With the blessings of the Almighty I’m happy to announce to you all my engagement with Riyasdeen Shaik Mohamed @riyasdeenriyan, an aspiring entrepreneur and a wizkid audio engineer. The engagement happened on December 29, my birthday in the presence of close family and loved ones. #KhatijaRahmanEngagementWithRiyasdeen #ThankYou.”
Riyasdeen Shaik Mohamed reshared the same photo collage on his Instagram account a few hours ago, with an almost identical comment. Riyasdeen disclosed that his fiancee is a musician and philanthropist in his note, and expressed his joy at being engaged to her. We did, however, come across some unusual photos from their involvement on social media. Returning to Riyasdeen’s note, it can be understood as follows:
“With the blessings of the Almighty I’m happy to announce to you all my engagement with Khatija Rahman, @khatija.rahman musician, producer & philanthropist. The engagement happened on December 29, on her birthday in the presence of close family and loved ones. #khatijarahmanengagementwithriyasdeen.”
Due to COVID-19 constraints, Khatija Rahman’s engagement ceremony was kept private, according to sources in the media. Only close relatives and family members were invited to the wedding. It’s also been claimed that, like their engagement, their wedding will be a small affair. For the uninitiated, Khatija Rahman made her acting debut in the film Robo, alongside SP. Balasubramanyam, in her father, AR Rahman’s father composition, O Maramanishi/Puthiya Manidha.
Khatija and Riyasdeen, congratulations!
