Filmmaker Soundarya Rajinikanth is all set to marry actor and businessman Vishagan Vanangamudi. While an official confirmation is awaited from the family of the bride, sources close to the superstar have informed TNM that the wedding is set to take place on Monday, February 11. Daughter of actor Rajinikanth and educationist Latha, Soundarya Rajinikanth's wedding will reportedly take place in Chennai with top stars from the country‚Äôs film industry expected to be in attendance. Reports say that the couple's engagement took place last year in the presence of close family and friends.
The 34-year-old started out as a graphic designer, helping her father with his hit projects such as Padayappa, Baba, Chandramukhi and Sivaji. Further, she made India's first motion capture film, Kochadaiiyaan, starring her father Rajinikanth in the lead. She has also set up Ochre Studios, a production house. She went on to produce the Tamil comedy Goa, directed by Venkat Prabhu.
Soundarya has a son, Ved Krishna, from her previous marriage to industrialist Ashwin Ramkumar. The filmmaker filed for divorce at a family court in Chennai in December 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. At the time, she requested the media and members of the public to respect the privacy of the family.
Soundarya directed her brother-in-law actor Dhanush in Velaiilla Pattadhari 2, a sequel to the 2014 hit of the same name. While the original was directed by Velraj, Soundarya brought together Dhanush, Amala Paul, Vivek, Hrishikesh, Sharanya Ponvannan and Samuthirakanni for the sequel with the star addition of Hindi actor Kajol who played the antagonist. The film was also released in Hindi. The satellite rights for the Tamil film were sold to Sun TV while the Hindi version was picked up Star India.
Vishagan made his acting debut in Vanjagar Ulagam, directed by Manoj Beedha, and has done small roles in a few other films.
