Days ago Rahman said that a gang was acting against him in Bollywood only to stop the opportunities he was receiving. Users of social media also linked both the incidents to spew hatred against Rahman. Now, singer Chinmayi came up with a series of tweets explaining about an incident to prove that Rahman is not such kind of a person.

She asked people who are branding Rahman as a “religiously obsessed” personality to remain silent. She explained about Rahman’s participation in a event she conducted for her mother named as “Kanakabishegam” which many in Hindu space didn’t agree on.

Chinmayi says that she invited A.R Rahman’s family for the event among the very few people she invited. “Saira ji came. Rahman sir came a bit late but every hour, Samidorai anna gave me a call and said “Annan nichayama varuvaru”. And he came. I paid respects to him and Saira ji as well, in the sthana of my Guru and Guru Patni. I know very few, truly spiritual men like AR sir.” Chinmayi’s tweet read.

Chinmayi further revealed that Rahman said “Namaskaram” to her mother. “He being Muslim and my mother being Hindu gaaaasp he came to a Hindu religious function where a woman was getting a Kanakabhishekam done by her daughter!) I only invited some 50 people to this event.” Chinmayi wrote.
