Music lovers across the country are fans of composer-singer AR Rahman. And, singer-actress Sophie Choudry is no different. On the occasion of the musician’s birthday, Sophie Choudry has shared an adorable throwback picture of herself with AR Rahman. In the image, the actress who is a self-confessed fangirl is seen posing for the camera next to AR Rahman. Sophie Choudry shared the photo during an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session. During the session, a fan asked the star to share “any childhood picture of yours (Sophie’s) that you haven’t shown anyone.”
Replying to this, Sophie Choudry said, “Not childhood but young teen having a fan moment with this legend! Incidentally.. Happy birthday, AR Rahman sir,” along with the picture, which has been framed.
