The mother of veteran music composer, AR Rahman has passed away in Chennai.
Confirming the news on his Twitter, Rahman shared a picture of his mother Kareema Begum. Reportedly, she breathed her last due to age-related ailments.
Talking about his mother in a previous interview Rahman said, “She has music instincts. Spiritually she is much higher than me in the way she thinks and takes decisions. For instance, her decision of making me take up music. She made me leave school in Class XI and take up music and it was her conviction that music is the line for me.”
