FARISHTON - First song by Khatija Rahman

 FARISHTON - First song by Khatija Rahman (daughter of AR Rahman)

Music composed by AR Rahman

"I was born in Chennai in a multicultural family with different genres of music and with friends from diverse backgrounds. I’ve always been fascinated with the wonders of life. As Mawlana Rumi says - “There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again”. The video's main character Amal was created with such experiences of mine and the longing to explore the unknown. I hope all of you find your own journey of the unknown. 

Special thanks to Lata Mangeshkar Ji who has been my inspiration to sing and thank you for personally taking the time in calling and giving me your kind compliments and showering me with your blessings. 

Thanks to the almighty, my grandmother Kareema Begum, my maternal grandfather - Abdul Sattar, mom, dad, Raheema, Ameen, my maternal uncles and aunts and my cousins from the maternal and paternal side, my teachers - Shruti Jauhari, Murtaza, Nirbhay Saxena, Mira Sengupta, Lavita Lobo, and Sterlin Nithya, my music business professor - Ritnika Nayan, all my teachers from Fathima School, Good Shepherd, Stella Maris, and B.S.A Crescent university who have encouraged and motivated me during my time with them. 

And most importantly to all of you who have been behind the scenes and who have continuously supported me by your prayers and positivity, all of this has happened because of your love and strength. Continue spreading that for every artist and human being and give more love and strength to them. 

Thanks to the media for all your encouragement in the beginning of my music journey.
