Music Maestro Illayaraja's son Yuvan Shankar Raja is a well-known music director who began his career in Tamil cinema at the age of 16.

Despite being successful, Yuvan is quite unlucky when it comes to relationships, as his first two marriages failed, and his third marriage happened without his family.

In 2015, he met his wife Zafroon Nisa, a Malaysia-based designer who comes from Tamil Nadu. His wedding was unexpected and only his sister attended it since the music director informed his family just two days before the ceremony. The couple has been blessed with a daughter named Ziya.

In a recent interaction with her followers, Yuvan's wife Zafroon was asked if she compelled him to convert to Islam. She replied by saying that Yuvan embraced the religion three years before the couple first met and since their minds are at the same frequency, they are happy together. He took the name Abdul Khaliq after converting.

Confirming his wife's answer, Yuvan came online to clear the doubts of his fans. He explained the real reason why he converted to Islam and how the religion has helped him cope with the loss of his mother. Check out the video here:
