In a 2020 interview with news portal, Khatija opened up about her famous father and his impact on her career.

“I definitely owe it to him … but after that it is going to be my hard work,” she said. “Just with my last name, nothing can be done. At the most it can give some placement or make it easy initially, but after that it’s only my work that will speak for itself. And, that what I truly believe. But I am always grateful to him.”

For the unversed, AR Rahman got married to Saira Banu on March 12, 1995. They are blessed with three children, two daughters Khatija Rahman, Rahima Rahman and a son Ameen Rahman who are musicians.
