AR Rehman hits back at trolls over daughter’s veil
Music maestro AR Rehman has blasted trolls who criticized his daughter Khatija for the latter's attire at a recent event celebrating the musical success of Slumdog Millionaire. The daughter was trolled on social media for endorsing face veil after images of the event were shared on the web.
Responding to the criticism, Bollywood music director shut down trolls by sharing a photo of all the women of his family, wife Sairaa, daughters Khatija, and Raheema posing with Ambani clan's matriarch Nita Ambani.
In the picture you can see that AR Rehman’s wife Sairaa covered her head with a dupatta, Khatija wore a niqab while the third one Raheema did neither. The photo was accompanied with #FreedomToChoose, through which AR Rehman criticized all those who have nothing else to do than troll others.
AR Rehman is not only a popular music figure in India but gained worldwide popularity through Slumdog Millionaire; he has been the man behind superhit flicks including Roja, Rangeela, Dil Se to name a few. Even though his daughter too responded to the trolls, it was Rehman’s perfect reply that made them realize that he doesn’t care what they have to say about his family.
