Music composer AR Rahman in conversation with popular anchor Simi Agarwal revealed how Rahman once met his wife Saira.
The marriage of Rahman and Saira was fixed. Both had married in 1995. When Simi asked Rahman why he chose an arranged marriage, Rahman replied that he had no time to look for a bride as he was busy with music direction and films.
‘At that time I was 29 years old, so I told my mother that this is the right time to get married. Actually I didn’t have time to look for a bride. I was doing all these films and Rangila in Bombay and I was very busy.
I told my mother. Find a groom for me I told my mother to find a very simple girl who would not bother me too much and disturb my peace.’
It was said that all I needed was a little education and a little beauty. Later the mother started the investigation. This is how Talaash reaches Saira. Rehman added.
