She stresses on the importance of following one's hobbies and interests, and expressed her love for capturing moments I have always loved taking pictures. As she told a leading daily, “I have always loved taking pictures. When I was young, I would carry a small camera with me on the sets.”
For Rehman, wildlife photography is all about luck, passion and patience and it's important to really learn and pay attention to the art to hone your skills.
