A R Rahman has defended his daughter appearing in a veil despite facing flak on social media, saying she has the right to choose her outfit.
While interviewing her double Oscar-winning father on the 10th anniversary of "Slumdog Millionaire", Khatija was seen wearing a saree and a veil, which drew sharp reactions on the social media.
Khatija also took to Facebook to address the controversy.
"I would like to say that the attire I wear or the choices I make in my life does not have anything to do with my parents. The veil has been my personal choice with complete acceptance and honour. I am a sane mature adult who knows to make my choices in life" she wrote.
