Mumbai: AR Rehman’s daughter, Khatija attended an event which was organized on the occasion of the 10-year celebration of the music of Slumdog Millionaire.
On the occasion, she appreciated her father’s generosity. She said, “the world sees you for your awards and accomplishments but for me, I think the most important thing that you have done as a father is the values you have taught us. Your humility matters the most for me. Not an atom of your character has changed ever since you won the Oscars. Ten years back and now, you are still the same except the time you spend with us has reduced. I think you are making it up now by taking us on short trips!”.
She further said, “I am deeply inspired by your generosity. There are a lot of things (social welfare work) which you do and which you don’t tell us and I come to know through third persons”. “He (AR Rehman) follows the Prophet (PBUH)”, she added.
When she asked her father to give advice for his kids, Mr. Rahman said that he had taught everything he had learned from his mother and now, she has to follow her heart. “Pray to God, he will guide you”, he added.
The team of Slumdog Millionaire also attended the celebration.
