In the pictures, Khatija is wearing a beautiful pink outfit with colourful embroidery on it and is wearing a matching mask as she posed for the pictures. She accessorized herself with jewellery and a garland. 

Instead of sharing Riyasdeen's picture from the ceremony, she posted a monochrome picture of her fiance. Riyasdeen also posted the same picture on his Instagram account.

In 2020, AR Rahman's daughter Khatija have gotten into a war of words on social media with Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen, after she shared a photo of Khatija in a burqa and wrote, "I love A R Rahman's music. But whenever I see his dear daughter, I feel suffocated. It is depressing to learn that even  educated women in a cultural family can get brainwashed very easily!" 

The young singer did not take it well and slammed the author for commenting on her wearing a burqa and asked her to some 'fresh air' if she felt suffocated.  

"Dear Taslima Nasreen, I’m sorry you feel suffocated by my attire. Please get some fresh air, cause I don’t feel suffocated rather I’m proud and empowered for what I stand for.'' Khatija wrote back then. 

On the work front, Khatija Rahman, who had performed with her father during Mumbai's U2 concert in 2019, has sung several songs in Tamil films and had also lent her voice to the song ‘Rock A Bye Baby’ from the Netflix film ‘Mimi’.
