Yuvan Shankar Raja
Muslim becoming Indian composer

In early 2014, it was reported that Yuvan had converted to Islam

According to rahyafte(the missionaries and converts website): Yuvan Shankar Raja, the youngest son of the legendary music composer Ilaiyaraaja, started showing interest in music right from an early age. He started his formal career in music composition in the year 1996, at the age of 16, making him one of the youngest film composers ever. In spite of the success he has seen in his music career, Yuvan’s love life has been a tumultuous one with two failed Yuvan Shankar Raja marriage ‘adventures’. He got married the third time after converting to Islam and except his sister, no one else from his family attended the wedding.

In early 2014, it was reported that Yuvan had converted to Islam. It was said that he went ahead with it in spite of his father’s opposition. Not much is known about his decision up till mid-2014, when he spoke about it in an interview. He shared that since his mother’s sudden demise in 2011, he had grown mentally disturbed and depressed. Over a period of time, due to a series of events, he found solace in Islam and decided to convert despite his father’s objection to it. He added that his brother and sister-in-law have been supportive of his decision though.

It was eventually in late 2014, that Yuvan found his bride in Jaffrunnisha, a Malaysia-based designer. It is said that Yuvan did not inform his family about his intention of getting married the third time till two days before the actual Jaffrunnisha Yuvan Shankar Raja marriage.

Yuvan and Jaffrunnisha got married in January 2015. Again, it was an extremely low-key affair where no one from the Tamil industry was invited. It is said that only select family members were invited for the wedding. Eventually, only Yuvan’s sister Bhavatharini turned up for the wedding. No other family member from Yuvan’s side attended the wedding. In an interview later, Bhavatharini gave an explanation for it stating that Yuvan shared his wedding plans just two days before marriage and that made it difficult for everyone to suddenly attend the wedding. She also shared that this Yuvan Shankar Raja marriage was an arranged marriage since Yuvan wanted to get married to a girl from a Muslim family. Apparently, he had asked his friends to look for a suitable match that’s how his wedding with Jaffrunnisha was arranged. Very little is known about Jaffrunnisha except that she resided in Malaysia but was a native of Tamil Nadu. Yuvan’s sister was supportive of her brother’s decision to get hitched the third time, and stressed that his happiness is their family’s priority. When she was quizzed about the absence of Yuvan’s father Ilaiyaraaja, she clarified that their father was out of town.
