Khatija Rahman, the daughter of the most renowned musician AR Rahman, recently got engaged with audio engineer Riyasdeen Shaik Mohamed. Khatija took to Instagram to post a photo collage from the ceremony.
Khatija Rahman wore a pink and silver dress with jewellery and a garland to the event. She also wore an identical mask to her December 29th engagement. Instead of publishing Riyasdeen’s event photo, she included a black and white shot of her fiancé.

“With the blessings of the Almighty, I’m happy to announce to you all my engagement with Riyasdeen Shaik Mohamed @riyasdeenriyan, an aspiring entrepreneur and a wizkid audio engineer,” she wrote in the post. “The engagement happened on December 29th, my birthday, in the presence of close family and loved ones. #KhatijaRahmanEngagementWithRiyasdeen #ThankYou.”
Several celebrities and fans responded to the post with congratulations. “Congratulations to both of you,” singer Harshdeep Kaur said. “May God bless you!” “Little baby girl is all set to walk the aisle,” Shweta Pandit wrote. So happy for you, @khatija.rahman.”
“Many many congratulations,” Neeti Mohan stated. This is such a wonderful moment. @riyasdeenriyan @khatija.rahman.” “Heartiest congratulations @khatija.rahman & @riyasdeenriyan!!” said Sreekanth Hariharan.
Khatija performed alongside her father during a U2 performance in Mumbai in 2019. Her song Rock A Bye Baby, which appeared in the Netflix film Mimi, was warmly received.
AR Rahman told news agency ANI last month that Khatija and his other daughter Raheema Rahman “have the toughest mindsets.” “They feel like they have to be excellent enough in whatever they do…all these things come to mind.” So I keep encouraging them not to worry about anything, just do it, just do it, and you’ll have your own personality… “God will bless you, and no one will be able to compare,” he said.
