Academy Award winner A R Rahman was caught up in a rare controversy which involved his daughter Khatija Rahman. Recently, while Khatija delivered an emotional speech at the 10-year celebration of Slumdog Millionaire Oscar win, held in Dharavi, her niqab-clad avatar got her trolled. The trolls also went on to call Rahman a man with double standards who forced his daughter to wear the niqab in public. Despite being trolled, AR Rahman has shared a new picture of his daughter in niqab which is the talk of social media.
Rahman took to Instagram and shared pictures of his adorable children, all dressed in their fashionable best for a magazine photoshoot. In the picture we can see Khatija, Raheema and Ameen pose for the camera and interestingly, Khatija can be seen in a niqab. The post has gone viral on social media and, in no time, has got more than three lakh hits. Have a look at the picture.

After the troll post, Rahman hit back to the trolls by tweeting a picture where the three ladies of his family are seen posing for the camera. Here also, while his daughter Raheema and wife Sairaa are dressed in their wedding best, Khatija is seen in a niqab. The caption in the post by Rahman suggests that what one wears is their personal choice.
Looks like Rahman was in no mood and gave it back to the online trolls in style.
