Yet another nephew of AR Rahman will be making his foray into the music industry.
After GV Prakash, Azhar Kaashif, the son of Rahman’s sister Fathima, will be debuting as a music composer.
Confirming the news, a source says, “Rahman’s nephew Kaashif will be making his debut as a music composer with a song titled Kannalaney, the video of which will be unveiled for Valentine’s Day.
The song has been sung by Javed Ali, who incidentally has worked with Rahman also in the past.
Kaashif has grown up listening to Rahman’s music and has also studied his uncle working at the studio. “That is where he learnt the nuances of technique,” informs the source, adding, “His music is as young as he is.”
In fact, he has dropped out of college to pursue his passion. His uncle Rahman’s and his brother GV’s blessings are always with him.”
