Ace musician AR Rahman’s eldest daughter, Khatija, got engaged to audio engineer Riyasdeen Shaik Mohamed on December 29. The ceremony took place in Chennai on her birthday in the presence of close family members and friends.

Khatija Rahman wore a red outfit, teamed with a red face mask for the engagement.

In 2019, Rahman's daughter was trolled for wearing a hijab. In a social media post, she clarified that choosing to wear a niqab was her independent decision, and it wasn’t imposed on her, urging people to not be judgmental.

Rahman's wife's name is Saira Banu. The couple has two daughters, Khatija and Rahima, and a son, Ameen.

Last year, Khatija sang a song, “Rock A Bye Baby", in the Hindi film “Mimi", starring Kriti Sanon. The song was composed by her father. She reportedly made her singing debut at 14, singing "O Maramanishi/Puthiya Manidha" in the Tamil film “Robo” with musical legend SP Balasubramanyam. That song too was composed by her father.
