On 1995 March 12, A. R. Rahman (Do you know his birth name was A. S. Dileep Kumar?) got married to Saira Banu at the age of 27, sister-in-law of the Tamil actor Rahman and the daughter of a Madras based businessman, who belongs to Kutch , Gujarat originally. It was a arranged Marriage. Saira and Rahman got married on Wednesday, March the 12th, 1995 in Chennai. Now they have two daughters Kathija and Raheema and a son Roomi. His elder daughter Kadhija doesn't like the autograph hunters running after him, so she restricts him from coming to her school. His younger daughter Raheema has interest in music. His son is too young, who shares the birthday with his father. He was born on 6th Jan 2002 and Rahman on 6th Jan 1966
A R Rahman lives in his joint family. The family consists of himself, his wife Saira Banu, his 3 sisters (Raihana, Talath and Israth), his mother (Kareema Begum), his two daughters (Kadhija and Raheema) and a son ( Khwaja Mohammad Roomi Rahman ).
His sisters Raihana, Talath and Israth are professionally trained musicians. They often sing for him, and appear on stage performances as well.
Sister Raihana's son, GV Prakash is a born talent, and he's into music. He has sung songs for Rahman and now is an emerging music director.
Rahman's mother and wife do play the most important part in his music - they are his critics.
