Chennai: Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman’s mother Kareema Begum passed away in Chennai on Monday.

The music maestro has confirmed the same with a post on the micro-blogging site-Twitter.

Rahman had credited his mother for recognising and nurturing his flair for music. He had said in an old interview that it was she who made him quit school in class 11 so that he could pursue a career in music.

Condolences poured in for Rahman’s mother from directors, musicians and actor from film fraternities.

Rahman, who was born Dileep, was raised by his mother Kareema (then Kasthuri Sekhar) after his father and music composer R Sekhar died when Rahman was only 9-year-old.
